How Can You Pack Your Kitchen for House Relocation


Among all the places to be careful during your house move, the kitchen is one area where you need to be extra careful. As there are a lot of breakable things in the kitchen like ceramic dishes, glass jugs and perishable food items that may cause unwanted fungi and bacteria growth, it is important to be extra aware of your packing methods, the things you pack and the items you use to pack it with.
Here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind to tackle the risky challenges of moving all your kitchen items in a single piece without any damage to your new home.

Give Importance To Sturdy Boxes, Not Large Ones

What happens when we use a large box to fill your kitchen things is that, we tend to overload the box with a lot of things till the box is full. Since most of our kitchen things are heavy on its own, everything together is going to be too heavy in the box. Add to that the number of breakable things in the box cluttered together; this is bound to be a catastrophe.

Either the strength of the box wouldn’t be sufficient enough to hold the weight of all the items present in the box, else due to a large number of the breakable present in a single box, there are high chances that the dishes may clash with each other during transportation and break on the way.

To avoid all these unwanted issues, pick a box that is of medium size and refrain from picking a large box just to reduce the number of boxes which you need to pack. While distributing the dishes between boxes, choose the things that are heavy at the bottom and balance it out by keeping some plastic dishes or things that aren’t too heavy so that the box can strongly withstand the total weight of the items without breaking open while handling it.

Refrain From Packing Perishables

It is understandable that you don’t want to waste the food you have. But it is also important to remember the safety of the things you pack with. When you pack perishable food items like fruits, vegetables, there are high chances that it may damage on the way even if it is for a short distance relocation. Not only will it get damaged, but it may also contaminate or spoil the things nearby causes a mass mess in the box it is packed in.

Therefore, pack only those things that have a high shelf life and don’t need refrigeration like flour, grains and so on. When you pack such food items, pack it in airtight containers so that it doesn’t get spoiled on the way. Avoid taking any liquid food items like oil, vinegar, sauces and so on. If you want to, spend some extra time packing it all in individual bubble wrap covers and pack it safely with proper cushioning.
