Your kitchen is a place in your home with the highest number of fragile items. Due to the nature of items, we can say “your kitchen is the toughest part of the house moving process.” Various types of glasses, cups/mugs, plates, pots/pans, chinaware and so on. In this article, I am giving tips on How Cheap Movers Melbourne pack your kitchen items safely. So, even if you try to move the stuff yourself, you know the proper way of doing it safely.
* The importance of proper boxes:
Never use cheap boxes to pack your kitchen items. Also, make sure the bottom of the boxes you are using are hard enough to act as a cushion to the items inside. The boxes you get from the local market not going to do the job here. Either get boxes from Cheap Movers Melbourne or go to the nearest house improvement store and get specially designed boxes. If you use hard flattened boxes, make sure to tape them well to prevent disasters.
* The importance of packing paper:
You must use packing paper to prevent the plates rubbing on each other. If the plates rub on each other, scratches will destroy their look. Try your best to minimize the contact between the items inside the boxes. Packing paper is your best friend here. Use ample of packing papers as you can buy them for a reasonable price. Cheap Movers Melbourne put a thick layer of packing papers on the bottom of the boxes before packing the glassware. Wrap each item with packing paper to prevent damages.
* PLATES, POTS & PANS:
These items come in various shapes and sizes. Cheap Movers Melbourne uses tissues to cushion these items. Don’t put anything inside the mugs as shaking when driving the truck can cause damages to the items inside. Don’t pack these items over the limit in the boxes. Label what’s inside giving clear instructions. Same as the plates, wrap each item with packing paper/tissues individually. Place larger items at the bottom of the box and smaller items on top.
* Silverware and other items:
Cheap Movers Melbourne uses hard, small boxes to pack silverware. Using big boxes for smaller items will make you overload the boxes. If you have very expensive silverware, wrap individual items with packing paper or tissues. If not, you can wrap them in bundles, then use packing papers. Be very careful when you pack your sharp knives.
* Electronics in the kitchen:
The hob, microwave, blenders, mixers, toasters, and heaters are the common electronics in a kitchen. Transporting them yourself is not a straightforward job. Cheap Movers Melbourne can transport your kitchen electronics safely. Make sure to remove the microwave plate before packing. The plate is a fragile item so pack it safely separately. Make sure no food left inside the oven.
The kitchen is a very important place in a house. The items you have in there are essential to get going as a family. When you are in the new home, unpack the items in boxes carefully. You can ask for help from Cheap Movers Melbourne staff to unpack the fragile items. If the kitchen in your new home is less spacious than the one in your current house, decluttering is an option. Donate unwanted/extra items to someone who needs.
