10 Tips For Moving Your Kitchen Items
It doesn’t matter whether you’re moving across town or across country, The Box Brothers know how stressful it can be to pack up and move a lifetime of memories to a new location. Doing what we do for a living, we’ve definitely heard our fair share of horror stories about “moves gone bad.”
But one thing we’ve found is nearly every moving mishap can be prevented if you just plan ahead. Today we want to share 10 helpful tips for packing your kitchen so everything from your favorite china to your antique cookie jar arrives at your next home safe and sound.
A lot of people make the mistake of moving their kitchen table before they pack their kitchen items. We suggest you pack your table last. Just clear it off and “wah-lah” you have a perfect workstation to pack up all your kitchenware, silverware, pots, pans and appliances.
When you pack a group of small fragile items in the same box, pack the heaviest ones near the bottom of the box. The lightest, most delicate items should be packed on top of the heavy items.
If you own larger breakable items like a crystal punch bowl, don’t pack then together. Use one box to avoid breakage.
Wrap your large breakable item with bubble wrap, tape it up and carefully place it in the box. Then fill the empty space with wrapping paper and tape up your box. Be sure and mark on all sides of the carton in large, bold letters (“FRAGILE”, “CRYSTAL PUNCH BOWL”) so everyone who touches that box knows to give it tender loving care.
We know moving is an art form, so if you don’t have time to master “the art of moving” and are interested in learning more about our professional moving services, contact us today or come by any location to speak with one of our moving specialists.
