That Kitchen tho....How do I pack it?

February 13, 2019




Top 10 tips on packing a kitchen to avoid damage during a move

Packing up a kitchen can seem like the most arduous task on your list when moving home. However, it’s not something to be dreaded. Here are a few tips to ensure your move is quick and pain-free:

1. Be selective and donate unwanted items

The fewer items you have, the less likely you are to damage things. Do a good deed and donate some unwanted items to charity.

2. Put aside some essentials

You’ll need a few bits and pieces to keep you going in between packing and moving, so set these aside early on. This way you won’t need to go rummaging through boxes, potentially damaging packed up items.

3. Find some tough packaging

Bubble wrap, labels, hard-wearing tape, and sturdy cardboard boxes are all absolute essentials if you want your move to be simple. Some box companies hire out the boxes which will save you money too!

4. Start with valuable and rarely used items

Take extra care when wrapping up valuable crockery, as the quality of your packing skills will likely decline as the day wears on.

5. Seal wine, liquor and oils tightly

There’s nothing worse than a cardboard box drowning in your favourite bottle of Malbec. Ensure you seal liquids tightly with plenty of padding, and tape around the neck if possible.

6. Get rid of perishables

Let go of any food items that are unlikely to last - they will only end up as potential bio-hazards.

7. Be careful with appliances

Improperly handled appliances can lead to damage or even gas leaks, so it may well be worth getting the professionals in to help you move them.

8. Take things slowly and choose the right moving company.

It may be tempting to get the job out of the way quickly, but this will only increase your chances of damaging your kitchenware. When choosing a professional removalist, ensure you check their google and facebook reviews.

9. Pay extra attention when packing knives

We don’t need to tell you that knives are sharp, so effective packing is essential. Ideally, source some plastic blade covers to keep you and the rest of your property safe.

10. Don’t overstretch yourself with heavy items

Kitchens host a number of very items. Only attempt to move them if you are sure you have the strength, as overestimating your lifting powers may end up damaging your kitchenware (and your back).
