Packing and Moving Your Kitchen

Packing and Moving Your Kitchen

    The kitchen is among the hardest rooms to pack when you are moving to a new residence. There are small items, large items, fragile items, expensive items, that are in drawers and cupboards and pantries and are in numerous dissimilar shapes and sizes. There are also food items that include perishable items in your refrigerator, and cleaning supplies under the sink that can be dangerous if spilled.

    The secret to a well-planned kitchen move is to pack as much of your kitchen as you can a week before your move. However, you will need to set aside certain kitchen items you will need before your move, and items you will need right after you have moved. The best approach is to pack those essentials into a box or two and take them from the box when you need something. These items include one set of plates, bowls, cups, glasses, and silverware for every person in the family. Also, non-perishable food that you will eat before and after the move, until everything is unpacked, along with one or two saucepans, one or two sharp knives, cleaning materials such as dish soap and a multipurpose cleaner, dishcloths, oven mitts, dish towels, and you might want your coffee maker, toaster, and microwave.

    There are a few other things to consider when moving your kitchen: 

  • First, be careful not to overpack boxes with cans and jars.
  • Second, sort your cutlery into their various types and pack them in their original cutlery chest if you have them. Also, keep your flatware in their organizer tray and wrap a layer of plastic wrap or stretch wrap over the top of it to keep the silverware from moving around and falling out.
  • Third, always pack chemicals in a box by themselves. Furthermore, some moving companies do not move specific chemicals, so check with your mover to see what items they cannot transport.
  • Finally, read your appliance’s owner’s manuals to ensure you unplug and disconnect them safely. Secure the cords of your appliances with bands or tape. Some bigger appliances like stoves and refrigerators require tools to disassemble them. They might also require a moving dolly, straps, and moving blankets to transport them safely.
