Preparing kitchen appliances for a long distance relocation – simple tips and tricks – how to do it

The time you need to pack your kitchen depends on the size of it and how many items do you have to pack. Also, it greatly depends on the level of your organizational skills and experience. The willingness to be organized, despite all minor setbacks, can be crucial.

In the beginning, it may sound scary and intimidating, but, if you have the right guide to follow, the process may be easier and less stressful.

Pack your kitchen easily, fast and efficient

#1 Get proper packing material

To transport all items safely, not only the items from your kitchen, you need to have the right packing supplies. Supplies such as moving boxes, packing peanuts, moving blankets, air bubble foil, a strong tape, and a permanent marker to label boxes after. Moving kitchen appliances is best if you have an original box.

If you are packing by yourself (without professional packers), buy firm moving boxes for all fragile items – china and glass. Keep in mind that your kitchen appliances will be “traveling” for a couple of days and they will be carried a lot, especially if you are moving from one coast to another (for example moving from California to New York).

#2 Start on time

Packing takes a lot of time and the kitchen is one of the factors why is that happening. Do not waste your time and start a month before the final moving day. If you won’t use kitchen appliances before moving, you can pack them first.

#3 Ask for help

If you are moving on short notice, ask friends to help you pack. Another option is to hire professional packers in your city. They have experience and knowledge. Also, you won’t have to deal with buying all those moving boxes.

#4 Clean and disassemble appliances

When preparing kitchen appliances for a long-distance relocation clean before putting them in the box. The most unfortunate task is having to clean them from grease. Also, it is easier and it will take less space if you disassemble appliances.
