Useful Packing Advices for Your Kitchen

Packing is one of the most unpleasant processes about a removal. And to be more particular, packing the kitchen can be really tiresome and time consuming. As a matter of fact, packing the kitchen is considered to be the most stressful step when relocating. This is due to the fact that this area of your home has a lot of features and items that are not only delicate in their nature but also extremely difficult to pack. Just think about the oven or the silver cutlery and you will understand what we mean. You need special packing materials and techniques to successfully accomplish your kitchen packing.
As kitchen appliances are extremely fragile you will have to be extremely careful when packing them. If you do not properly do this it is very likely that you will end up with a box of broken glasses, plates and cups that cannot be used any more. And what is even worse you will be forced to buy new ones which is a really expensive task. However, you can easily avoid this annoying situation by following a few simple tips that will guarantee you your kitchen appliances will arrive in the new place undamaged.

1.   Make sure you have enough time to pack everything. As kitchen items are more delicate compared to others you will have to pay great attention when packing them. That is why you need to start as early as possible so that you can be sure you have enough amount of time to organise and pack everything.
2.   First, pack the most essential items that you are going to need as soon as you arrive in the new place such as cutlery, plates, dishes, etc.
3.   Make sure you have boxes of all sizes – small, medium and large one. And do not forget bubble warp also. This material is extremely helpful especially when it comes to packing fragile items such as glasses, plates, cups, etc. Bubble wrap can be easily found in every specialised store and is not expensive at all.
4.   Some people use towels instead of bubble warp. This is actually a very handy tip that will save you some money. Just cover your fragile items with towels before placing them in the boxes. As towels are soft they will serve as buffer and will protect the kitchen items against any possible damages.
5.   For the very same thing but for larger items you can use blankets.
6.   Once you have placed everything in the boxes make sure to label all of the boxes with marks “fragile”. Do this for every side of the box so that you can easily see it when you are placing the boxes on the removal van or truck.
7.   Number the boxes and make a list to know what is in each number, for example spoons, knives, plates, dishes, etc. This way you will find out that it is much easier to find what you are looking for when you arrive in the new place. And you will not have to look in all of the boxes until you find the necessary items to prepare the lunch or the dinner.
