The Complete Guide to Packing A Kitchen

Moving can be difficult, especially when it comes to packing up the kitchen. From the appliances and utensils to the food items, it’s challenging to figure out how to get everything in the kitchen safely to your new home. Save yourself the headache of trying to figure it out on your own by referencing this complete guide to packing a kitchen by movers in Denver, CO:

Silverware

Organize all of your silverware by type, so the spoons are with the spoons, the knives are with the knives, and so on. Then, place a rubber band around each group of silverware to hold them all together and place them inside a clean shoe box with tissue paper. Be sure to tape the box closed otherwise, and the shoebox will flap open during the move.
Plates and Glasses
Find a medium or large-sized box and line the bottom with bubble wrap or moving blankets. Then, wrap each plate with packing paper before putting it inside the box. Stack the plates on top of one another, adding an extra layer of packing paper every three or four plates. Be sure to stop from time to time to pick up the box so you can test its weight. The box may start getting heavy before it’s full. If it does, stop packing plates so the box doesn’t become too heavy to carry.

Glasses should all be wrapped and packed in smaller-sized boxes. It’s best to use bubble wrap when packing glasses, but if bubble wrap is too expensive, use cotton t-shirts instead.

Small Appliances

If possible, pack all small appliances in their original boxes. If you don’t have these boxes lying around, find another box about the same size as the appliance.

Some appliances need to be taken apart before they are packed. If an appliance has multiple parts, pack them all in the same box along with the owner’s manual so you can keep track of everything.

Pack Unopened Bottles Only

Sort through your wine collection and pantry to get rid of any bottles that are unsealed. Unless the bottle is an expensive bottle of wine or fancy cooking oil, there’s no reason to transport a half-empty bottle to your new house. Remember, some moving companies charge by the weight of your belongings. Since bottles are so heavy, transporting unopened bottles could make your move more expensive.

A Box of Essentials

You won’t need to use many items in your kitchen right away, but certain items will probably need to be unpacked as soon as you get to your new home. Keep all of these items in a separate box, so you don’t have to dig through dozens of boxes to find what you’re looking for. This box can include snacks, dish soap, dish towels, and a coffee maker. Learn how to pack the kitchen for moving.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
