Field operatives of a reliable moving company, let’s say Four Winds Saudi Arabia, come to that person’s home. Among other boxes, they pick the one with china up and take it to their truck. They put it, along with the others, in the back of the truck. Then the truck is going to travel hundreds of miles to its destination. That is a long way and there ought to be many bumps, literal and metaphorical, along the way.
