It is really such a task to pack and move out of your present house to a new one. However exciting the end result is, the task in hand always seems tremendous. There are a lot of things to look after. One of the major places from where you need to pack things is the kitchen. A kitchen usually has a lot of different kinds of equipment. There are glassware, steelwares, electrical appliances, sharp knives, and edibles to be packed – amongst several other items.
In this post, we’ll deal with this task. We’ll show you how you can easily pack your kitchen and safely move all of your things to the new place. Before we do, have a look at this video which talks about the same:
You need specialized moving boxes and not the free ones
A kitchen is not like any other room. You can use the cardboard boxes to pack up your bedroom or bathroom supplies but for the kitchen, you need better quality boxes. You can rent out moving boxes from moving companies like www.matcocalgarymovers.com or, purchase specialized moving boxes from departmental stores.
Use boxes which have handles in them. It makes it easier to carry and safer too. You would want all your dishes to be in the same condition when you open the boxes at your new home.
Don’t Stuff The Boxes With Too Much Load
The items in the kitchen are usually delicate and/or heavy. It’s not like your clothes and bedsheets which you can stuff in one box. The glass dishes are fragile and steel ones are heavy. So are the electrical appliances such as microwave oven, mixer grinder, mini fridge, induction cooker, and others. It can turn out to be a disaster if you load up too much in every kitchen-related containers.
Keep Separate Boxes For Sharp Objects, Glasswares, and Metals
Never keep your glass dishes and metal utensils in the same box. You might think that everything would work out perfectly but no. It never works that way. Either you’ll have scratches all over your favorite glass bowls or, you’ll find those shattered to the bits.
Also, the same thing goes for sharp knives, forks, or other sharp pointy objects. If you put them with your metal utensils, they will have scratches all around them. You can prevent it from happening by covering the sharp objects with cloths. Or, just put them in a separate box.
How To Pack-up The Edibles?
If you don’t want to give out the food supplies you have to your neighbors or the poor, you would want to pack them and take them with you. However, there are certain things you should avoid taking with you. Like the cooking oil container, or the opened sauce bottles. They can always create major transportation issues. You can use packing tapes to seal packets of dry food items. For fresh fruits and vegetables, you can use plastic seal bags. Tote bags are of great use when you want to pack up the food items and take them to your new place.
