Packing the kitchen comes with a lot of loose ends. There are so many dishes, cups, appliances, odds and ends and more shoved onto shelves. This job is also something you can’t rush through, because if you’re not paying attention, you will find yourself with broken dishes and shattered glasses when you open the boxes in your new place. The Denver professional packers from All My Sons Moving & Storage are going to give you 4 steps to pack the kitchen correctly.
You should start packing your appliances with their original boxes and packaging, if you have them. If you don’t have the original packaging, you should use medium-sized packing boxes to pack up your appliances. You should remove any smaller or fragile parts to keep them safe, and wrap those pieces in bubble wrap or packing paper.
Packing dishware is never easy. The first thing you need to know is not to stack the plates in the box. You should wrap them with bubble wrap or packing paper, and lay them on their sides in the boxes. According to our Denver professional packers, if plates are packed side by side, they are less likely to break.
Loose silverware is difficult to sort out during the unpacking process, so to save yourself a headache, start sorting your silverware according to type. You can wrap each type with a rubber band, and place all the wrapped silverware in a box.
Lastly, to pack your pots and pans you should grab the biggest pan and place it horizontally and diagonally in a large box. Then, you can stack your pots and pans and place them in the box. If the lids to your pots and pans are glass, you should wrap them in packing paper and place them under the handles of the pans. You should fill any empty space with crumpled up packing paper to keep things from shifting during the move.
