Moving the kitchen with all its objects, drawers and cabinets can be really challenging. The kitchen is probably the most difficult and challenging room to move from the best movers. To help you organize the move, keep in mind the tips that we report in this article and which for convenience we summarize in 10 points:

1 – Choose, select and simplify

Before moving everything, choose the items you want to keep with you after the move and put away the ones you think you may no longer need. Be sure to leave any items you have decided to discard away from the moving boxes so you don’t accidentally pack them. Explore every drawer and wall unit and try to be as selective as you can. With the items you do not want with you, you can make online sales of used items or auctions even among friends. You can also think simply of giving the superfluous for you to acquaintances or friends.

2 – Prepare boxes with the essentials for when you will be left without a room (kitchen).

Put aside everything you might need on the days when the kitchen will be packed and ready for the move, and which will come in handy such as: dishes, some cutlery, food and drinks (tea, coffee, etc.), tea towels, and some soap to clean the dishes etc …

3 – Collect all the boxes you will need

To pack a kitchen for an average family (4/5 people) you will need the following: – 5 large boxes (18 x 18 x 24): for light and difficult-to-pack items such as plastic dishes, dish drainer, small appliances, baking pans. – 10 medium boxes (18 x 18 x 16): for heavier items such as small appliances, pantry items, pots and pans, cutlery, drawer contents, cookbooks. – 5 Double Thickness Boxes for Heavy Objects (18 x 18 x 28): These have double walls and are perfect for packing fragile items, such as plates, glasses, goblets, wine and canisters. – Rolls of paper for packaging: food, fragile and small items. – Bubble paper (bubble wrap): buy a long enough roll, you will save and you can also use it for other rooms and objects if you have any left. – 5/8 boxes with separate compartments (18 x 18): this type of box is extremely useful for arranging glasses, goblets, wines, spirits, pictures, vases and tin boxes. Choose the size of the boxes well so that you can insert your objects. – 5 rolls of adhesive tape: you can also use it to pack objects in other rooms. Colored markers and stickers: you will need them to label and mark content and destination out of the boxes.

4 – Pack up what is not used frequently

Start by packing those objects found in the wall units and drawers that you don’t open every day. Those that may contain: Vases, glassware, wine glasses, molds for cakes and biscuits, small appliances: (mixer, blender, mixer), cookbooks, extra tea towels, tablecloths, napkins, mats etc. Special tools such as: containers for salt, sugar, pepper and various spices, mats and trays. Forks, tongs for meat and fish, plastic and wooden spoons etc … -Pictures and squares. Read also how to carry a sofa when moving.

5 – Pack wine, spirits or anything that is still closed

Wines and alcohol can be packaged first. Select the bottles you plan to open before or during the move and set them aside and pack the rest. The other things you will want to pack at that point could be bottles containing oil, vinegar, flavored oils, etc. Remember that you can often buy many items again and avoid packing and moving them when moving. This operation would cost more than having them from scratch.
