Packing a kitchen doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, you can use this opportunity to get even better organized at your next location. First, gather the tools you’ll need. You’ll need a variety of box sizes, lots of packing paper and tape, sharp scissors and a permanent ink marker. Don’t mess around with newspaper as a cost-saving measure. The newspaper ink will make a mess. Buying the real stuff is worth it. If your experienced movers in Temecula are doing your packing, you won’t need supplies. They’ll have everything they need to get the job done right.
Take time to be organized, thinking about household groups before you even get started. You can pack baking goods together, such as cake and pie pans, hand mixer and mixing bowls. This will be helpful as you unpack each organized box in your new home.
As your next step, think about priority items you’ll need in the first few days following the move. Pack those items separately, mark them as such and keep them separate from the other boxes. Some of the things you might place in your boxes for immediate use are paper plates, napkins and cups, disposable silverware, and kitchen towels.
Whether you’re using movers in Temecula or self-packing, keep small appliances in original boxes, as much as possible. If the boxes are gone, you’ll need to remove small or loose parts, and wrap them up in packing paper, then tape and label it clearly so the pieces don’t get lost. Generally, remember that the best rule of thumb is to place big and heavy items on the bottom of each box and lighter, smaller items on top. Scrunch up pieces of packing paper to add padding between items. Pack kitchen towels and wash cloths as pads between items, too.
Wrap each dish or breakable item separately so they don’t get chipped or broken. Talk to your movers in Temecula about their recommended boxes for dishes, too. Movers know to bunch up packing paper to pad the bottom of the box first. If you keep the paper on the counter, just place each dish in the middle of the stack and wrap it loosely there before placing into the box. Again, remember to place the lightest or most delicate items, on the top of each box. Label all your dish and breakable boxes Fragile and also This Side Up, so the movers are aware of the contents.
