5 tips on packing your kitchen for a move

Moving can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, especially when it comes to packing up your kitchen. With so many dishes, appliances, and cooking tools, it can be hard to know where to start. If you’re planning a move to or from Ottawa, hiring professional movers like A Mile Above Moving can make the process much easier.

As Ottawa’s top moving company, A Mile Above Moving has the experience and expertise to handle all of your packing and moving needs. Our team of professional movers will work with you to create a personalized plan, ensuring that your kitchen is packed and moved efficiently and safely.

Before you start packing, it’s important to declutter your kitchen. Go through all of your dishes, appliances, and cooking tools, and get rid of anything you no longer use or need. This will not only make packing easier, but it will also save you time and money on your move. Don’t forget to donate or sell items that are still in good condition.

Once you’ve decluttered, it’s time to start packing. Here are a few tips to help you pack your kitchen like a pro:

  1. Start with non-essential items: Begin by packing items that you won’t need during the moving process, such as decorative dishes and serving platters.

  2. Pack dishes and glassware properly: Wrap each dish and glass individually in bubble wrap or packing paper, and then place them in a sturdy box. Be sure to pack the heavier items on the bottom and the lighter items on top to prevent breakage.

  3. Protect your appliances: Appliances like your refrigerator and stove can be difficult to move, so it’s important to properly prepare them. Clean them thoroughly and remove any detachable parts, such as shelves and drawers. Cover the appliances with moving blankets to protect them during transport.

  4. Use small boxes for heavy items: It’s tempting to use large boxes for heavy items like pots and pans, but it’s actually safer to use smaller boxes. Large boxes can become too heavy to lift, which can lead to injuries.

  5. Label boxes clearly: As you pack, be sure to label each box with its contents and the room it belongs in. This will make it easier to unpack and get settled in your new home.

By following these tips, you can make packing your kitchen for a move much easier. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t hesitate to reach out to A Mile Above Moving for assistance.
