Preparing kitchen appliances for packing

Like when packing any other item, you must prepare yourself first. Here is what you have to do:

  • Properly clean and dry all the appliances you want to pack.
  • You will probably have to disassemble them. Otherwise, it will be harder to fit them in a box.
  • In the best-case scenario, you would have the original boxes in which the appliances came in. Using them will reduce any potential damage during the move. You will also be able to fit more of the appliances in the big boxes you will put in the removals vehicle.
  • Gather the needed packing materials, such as packing paper, tape, bubble wrap, scissors, and markers, along with small and medium-sized boxes for moving.
  • You can be more organized by making an inventory checklist. Write down all the appliances you have and scratch out the name of the ones you have packed.

Why not leave it all to a packing professional who can bring all the materials and do the job? Learn more about our price rates and offers!

How to pack coffee machine for moving

A coffee maker is the type of appliance that you will need to dismantle before you put it in the moving box. If you have the original packaging, there probably is an instruction manual that you can follow when disassembling. If not, you can always check with the manufacturer.

  • If the original box is not present, take one that is at least two times bigger than the coffee machine.
  • Fill it with balled-up packing paper.
  • Put the machine upright in the middle of a sheet of paper.
  • Place a couple of sheets over the coffee maker.
  • Wrap it by using the paper on and under the machine.
  • Secure everything with packing tape.
  • Put the machine in the centre of the box.
  • Repeat the packing procedure with the rest of the parts.
  • Place them at the corners of the box.
  • Fill the rest of the space with more balled-up packing paper.
  • Seal the box properly with packing tape and label it.

How to pack a toaster during a move

Toasters rarely have any removable parts, but if yours does, detach them carefully before you start packing.

  • Place the toaster in the lower right or left part of a packing paper sheet.
  • Wrap it and secure each end with tape.
  • Now put it on another sheet of paper and wrap it again.
  • The more layers of packing paper there are, the safer the transportation will be for your beloved toaster.
  • If you have the original box, ensure the appliance will fit inside with all those paper layers.
  • Fill the empty space with more packing paper, seal the box with tape, and label it.
