Kitchen Packing Tips from Gasperson Moving & Storage

Moving can be an exciting adventure, but the process of packing up your entire kitchen can be overwhelming. From fragile dishes to bulky appliances, there’s a lot to consider when safely packing up your culinary haven. Fortunately, you can tackle this task efficiently and effectively with some strategic planning and organization. Here are some expert tips from Gasperson Moving & Storage to help you pack up your kitchen like a pro.

1. Declutter Before You Pack: Before you start packing, take some time to declutter your kitchen. Get rid of any items you no longer use or need. This will lighten your load and make unpacking in your new home much easier.

2. Gather Packing Supplies: Make sure you have all the necessary packing supplies on hand before you begin. This includes sturdy boxes in various sizes, packing paper, bubble wrap, packing tape, and markers for labeling.

3. Pack Non-Essentials First: Start by packing up items that you don’t use on a daily basis, such as specialty appliances, serving dishes, and seasonal items. Wrap fragile items like glassware and ceramics in packing paper or bubble wrap and place them securely in boxes.

4. Protect Your Appliances: For larger appliances like blenders, mixers, and coffee makers, be sure to remove any detachable parts and pack them separately. Wrap the appliances in bubble wrap or moving blankets to protect them during transit.

5. Use Small Boxes for Heavy Items: When packing heavier items like canned goods, pots, and pans, use smaller boxes to prevent them from becoming too heavy to lift. Ensure to reinforce the boxes’ bottoms with packing tape for added durability.

6. Pack Plates Vertically: Instead of stacking plates flat on each other, pack them vertically in boxes with plenty of packing paper between each plate. This will help prevent them from breaking during the move.

7. Label Boxes Clearly: As you pack, label each box with its contents and the room it belongs in. This will make unpacking much easier and ensure everything ends up in the right place in your new home.

8. Pack a “First-Day” Box: Pack a box with essential items you’ll need on the first day in your new home, such as basic utensils, plates, cups, and snacks. This will save you from digging through multiple boxes to find what you need.
