Kitchen appliances are among the largest and heaviest things you will need to pack. Here are some great tips to follow if you want your kitchen items to arrive in one piece at their new home:
1. Prepare first before packing any appliance
Before you start packing make sure that the machine is unplugged from its power source. It’s also a good idea to check if it has been properly dried as well as emptied of all food remains or residue. You must then wipe it dry with a clean cloth or towel before storing them away for moving.
2. Pack the machine’s smallest parts first
It is very important that all parts come together during transit so there should be no hassle when setting up your machine at its new home. Before you pack each of the parts, make sure that they are properly dried and wiped clean from any dirt or residue.
Each part must be wrapped separately in a protective material so they won’t have direct contact with each other while being transported. You can use soft cloths or towels to cover each individual part of the machine so they will not move around inside the box when on transit. This is important as small movements within a packed container may cause damage on your appliances especially if it moves around on its own accord while being transported from one place to another.
4 . Place smaller parts at the bottom of the box first
When packing smaller kitchen appliances it is usually best to place them at the bottom of the box first before anything else. This way, they won’t move around while you are packing up bigger items on top of them.
5 . Place larger parts last
For your big kitchen appliances like ovens and refrigerators, place these ones in the middle part of the box when you are almost done with all other packaging. This will keep them stable in their position when you stack other boxes on top of them. These machines may be very heavy when packed so make sure that when stacking your goods you distribute weight evenly between each machine inside the container.
