One of the more difficult rooms to pack for a move is the kitchen. Kitchens contain a lot of different items, some fragile, some not, so it can be hard to know the best way to pack them. Moving companies in San Diego are very familiar with this problem so we here at Priority offer some tips on how to properly pack up your kitchen for a move.
Get rid of perishables
First things first, don’t worry about packing up any of your perishable food items. Non-perishable raw ingredients or canned foods should be fine for a move, but any processed and prepackaged foods should be consumed before the move. This includes things like bread, meat, cereals, snacks, produce, etc.
Sort into fragile and non-fragile
Next, go through your kitchen items and separate them into fragile and non-fragile. Things like dishes, glassware, and any other smaller items should go in the fragile pile while larger appliances, silverware, large utensils, and plastic things can go into the non-fragile pile.
Essentials from non-essentials
Moving companies in San Diego also recommend to go through and set aside any essential items you will need as soon as you move in and anything you can wait to unpack. Your essentials box should contain enough silverware and dishes for a few meals and any necessary cooking utensils like pots, pans, lids. You should also consider putting some kitchen cleaning supplies into the essentials box.
Wrap with bubble wrap
Everything in the fragile box should be wrapped with either newspaper or bubble wrap. Make sure you pack everything so that there is little space in the boxes for things to shift.
