Everyone knows that moving can be stressful. Who really wants to spend the day packing boxes and looking at various forms of disarray? Regardless, most people need to make a move at some point or another. Why not make it effective and organized so that you can maximize the time spent and the energy exerted? One of the best ways to make your move easier is to to have your kitchen efficiently packed. There are a few ways to accomplish this.
1. Prepare an essentials box.
Before you even open up a cardboard box, make a list of what you absolutely need to have in your new kitchen. Can you live without your Keurig for a few weeks? Do you have to have the toaster at the ready? It helps to be as realistic as possible when outlining your list. If you live with a spouse, make sure that you compile his/her thoughts, as well. Essentials are usually restricted to those items that you need to make meals with, such as a place setting for each person, a knife, and any small appliances you absolutely must have. Thoroughly clean your small appliances before moving and make sure that the cord is wrapped tightly and neatly.
2. Carefully pack dishes in separate boxes.
Dishware, for many people, is a time-consumer when packing up the kitchen. At Brothers Movers, we recommend individually wrapping all fragile dishware in a box and making sure that it’s all secured well with packing tape. If you need some movers to help with your move in Montgomery County, PA, Bucks County, or Chester County, then we can help you with all the dishware you’ve got. We know how to handle a move with consideration and care. As an added note, be sure that your dishware has cushioning, such as bubble tape or even soft, old clothing. You can label these boxes as fragile.
3. Be mindful of liquids.
If you’re packing up a kitchen, chances are you’ve got cleaning supplies that will be going with you. Brothers Movers can help you sort these out if you’re moving in the Montgomery County, PA, Bucks County, Chester County, or Philadelphia areas.
