U-Haul's Dish Saver Kit has 32 foam pouches in which to cover dishes. These pouches measure 7.25 inches by 7.25 inches, 12.5 inches by 12.5 inches and 9.25 inches by 9.25 inches to accommodate different sizes of plates and bowls. The box is divided into five sections to keep dishes separated. It can house up to eight full place settings and has sturdy handles. The Dish Saver Kit is also ideal for moving picture frames, knick knacks and decorations. They cost around $11 per box, as of October 2015.

Glass Pack Kits are also available. These are specially designed to secure glassware but can also be used to transport breakable figurines. The box's divider creates 18 spaces for individual glasses or cups, and foam pouches are provided for extra protection. These retail around $11 per box.

Dish Saver and Glass Pack Kits can be ordered through U-Haul's website or purchased directly at any U-Haul outlet. If any purchased boxes go unused, U-Haul takes them back provided the receipt is present.
