How To Pack Your Kitchen for Moving

Packing for your upcoming move can be a long process. Make sure you keep track of everything you have packed and label everything. The kitchen can be especially difficult to pack because of the fragile nature of most kitchen items.

Before Packing

Start by pre-sorting your items. Determine what items you are leaving behind, donating, or selling and place them in separate areas.It’s less stressful to deal with items you are not taking with you before moving day comes.

Make sure to label everything. Even when packing all items from one room, each box should have detailed labels of what is included. If you plan to organize items similarly to your current kitchen, consider packing boxes with items that will go together.

Make an inventory list. While this may seem tedious, having an inventory of all of your items will give you some extra peace of mind. It is also important to know how many boxes there are and what is in each box.
