How to prepare your kitchen for relocation?

One of the most time-consuming parts of your home to pack is the kitchen. Since this is a room with many appliances, fragile items and small tools, it’s important to know how to prepare it for the move. One of the things you could do before packing pans and pots is to make a packing plan. Decide which items you’ll need on a daily basis, and which you can pack weeks before the move. Since some pans and pots are the items we use every day, you can set aside some big ones and pack them right away. However, you might consider packing the kitchen last, after you are done with packing every other room in your home.

Which packing supplies you’ll need?

Packing pans and pots can be tricky because of their size and shape. You could stack some of them inside each other, but their handles might be in the way. What you’ll need to prepare are some quality packing supplies like wrapping paper, bubbly paper and cardboard boxes.

If you don’t have these supplies at home, you can use what you already have. Moreover, using bed-sheets, cloths and other soft materials for wrapping kitchenware will help you achieve an eco-friendly move. The fewer supplies you use for packing, the less junk you’ll produce.

Pack bigger items first

Packing pans and pots can be done in many ways. However, you should consider sorting them according to size. The reason is simple – bigger pots and pans take more room in the moving boxes. Also, they could support smaller ones, if you pack them tighter carefully. Sorting out your pots will help you decide which ones to pack first. Also, it will help you see which ones to set aside for using before the move.

Another benefit of packing bigger pans and pots first is the security. While your moving boxes are in transport, bigger items can work as a support for smaller ones. This method will work only if you use quality packing supplies and the right order of packing.

Packing pans and pots into moving boxes

After you sort out your inventory and get all the packing supplies, it’s time for packing pans and pots into moving boxes. What’s important to remember is to get the right size of the boxes so they don’t break under oversized items. Here are some steps you should take for successfully packing pans and pots:

Besides sorting out your kitchen inventory, you should also make sure to clean it before packing.
  • Use the newspaper and/or wrapping paper to secure your pans and pots. The paper will work as a protective sheet between them.
  • Don’t put dirty or broken pans and pots into moving boxes. They could damage the box or tear it apart. If some of them can be disassembled, make sure to do it. It will make packing pans and pots way easier.
  • Sort out your pots and place the smaller ones insider bigger ones. This way of packing will save you space and secure your kitchenware during the move.
  • Don’t overpack each moving box. If it seems too crowded, you should rather use another one for packing the rest of the pans and pots.
  • Use a separate moving box just for packing the lids. You can pack them separately or place them upside-down on the pots to save room.
  • Don’t forget to label each moving box. While unpacking your kitchen inventory, it will save you a lot of time. You can label the boxes “kitchen”, or be more specific like “pans and pots”, “fragile items” etc.

How to secure your home inventory during transportation?

It’s one thing to pack your kitchen without professional help. However, getting it all to another home can be difficult to manage. This is why we would recommend hiring one of the moving companies Queens to handle the transportation process. Even if you are moving locally, you should consider letting movers do what they do best. And that is – securing your home inventory throughout the entire moving process.

What to do with all the extra belongings?

If you realized that you have too many old and unnecessary pans and pots, you can save them for use in your vacation home. Also, you could give them away to a friend who just moved in and needs some kitchen appliances. If you decide to put them into a storage unit, you should look for some storage NYC solutions. There are many moving companies that can offer you storage units as an additional moving service. After packing pans and pots successfully, all that’s left to do is to let moving professionals transport them to your new home.
