How Do You Go About Packing Your Kitchen?

When you’re preparing for a move, the kitchen is usually a big pain point for many. It’s full of breakables, sharp objects, and important stuff you’re like to need very soon after moving into your new place. There’s a ton to pack in the kitchen, but it all needs to be packed with care and placed in an organized fashion so you can have it when you need it use it. When it comes to packing up your kitchen, going about it the right way can make all the difference. 

Tips For The Perfect Kitchen Packing Experience

Knowing where it starts in packing your kitchen is half the battle, and it’s always a good idea to start with the basics. Some tips for the perfect kitchen packing experience are: 

  • Start with a rundown of your food – Packing up your food is a delicate process, and you should start it with a rundown of everything you’ve got in your pantry. You’ll want to minimize what you’re going to throw away, and you’ll do this by making use of as much as possible. Before your move, look up recipes that use up those tough ingredients so you can enjoy them but not have to drag them along to the new place with you. Separate what you’re taking and what you’re going to use. 

  • Sort out your essentials and nonessentials – So you’re not left with the full load on moving day, you can sort out your essentials and nonessentials to make for a much easier moving experience. Take all of the nonessential items you’re not going to use immediately and pack them away or move them to the new place over time if you’re able. Leave yourself only with the items you’re going to be regularly using to lessen your load. 

  • Acquire the right materials – You’ll be packing up knives, heavy things, delicate things, and perishables, so make sure you have a plethora of materials to use. Packing paper, heavy duty boxes, insulated containers for cold perishables, bubble wrap, and plenty of tape is a good place to start to make sure you’ll have all you need to pack up your kitchen right. 

  • Keep things organized – Part of packing your kitchen is unpacking it, and you’ll thank yourself later if you make sure to keep your process organized. Clearly labeling boxes, keeping sets of things together, and packing boxes into the truck in groups is something you’ll appreciate later.

  • “I ended up using InstaMove several times after finding them on Thumbtack, and every single experience was awesome. All of their staff were punctual, hard-working, and professional. The office always worked to accommodate my schedule needs, and they were affordable, even for a non-profit! I can't recommend this company highly enough!”

  • “Awesome experience. Hired InstaMove Austin and they did a great job. I was provided a quote and the movers stayed within the quote. Not like most movers that give you a low quote then you are paying over 100% of the quote when the job is done. Also, per pics below they wrapped all the furniture prior to moving. The other movers have not done that and I have used a lot of movers. A+ service. If you want it done right it is definitely InstaMove Austin. Will definitely use the again.”

  • “The guys were very friendly. They quoted us 2 guys but showed up with 3- only charging us for 2 guys still. They took care of our belongings and knocked out everything super quick. I would definitely recommend this moving service to friends and family in the future.”
