Packing Tips: Episode Three--Kitchen and Dishware

Overwhelmed by the thought of packing up your kitchen?


Let Charles River Movers help!

When packing, the kitchen tends to be a daunting adversary for many individuals as a commonly used room with delicate dishware. This two part episode, 1) Organization and Preparation, and 2) Packing Dishware, will collapse that Goliath of a room into easily manageable steps.


Part 1) Organization and Preparation


Firstly, clear off that kitchen table!

Packing is a great deal easier and far less tiring if you work conveniently on a table.  Therefore, the first thing to do is to clear off the one in your kitchen.

Get creative picking out a packing carton

Choose a good, solid, medium sized carton for packing breakables.  Liquor cartons, which contain dividers, are especially well-suited for packing and protecting valuable glassware, figurines, and more. Before packing, crumple-up some newspaper and line the bottom of the carton for added cushioning and protection against breakage.  Also, make sure the bottom of the carton is well-sealed with plenty of tape.



Packing your kitchen will be a cinch with Charles River Movers' tips!

Part 2) Packing Dishware


1) Position

Lay out several sheets of wrapping paper and place a plate in the center. Grasp the corner 
nearest you of three sheets of wrapping paper.


            2) Cover

Cover the plate completely by pulling the corner of the three sheets of wrapping paper over the entire dish.  


      3) Add Second Plate

On top of the first dish.


      4) Cover again

Pull a different corner of the same three sheets of paper over the dishes, covering them completely.  

*Depending on the size of the dishes, you may want to add 
another dish or two to the stack, repeating the procedure with the third and fourth corners of the wrapping paper.


            5) Bundle and Repeat

When the dishes are all enclosed, turn the whole bundle over and, using a 
couple more sheets of wrapping paper repeat the corner-wrapping process again with three more sheets of paper.  When this is done, your dishes will be doubly-wrapped.


      6) Seal and Pack


Seal-up the bundle with sealing tape and place it vertically in your chosen medium-sized carton.


Bonus Tip:

When packing a bundle of flat dishes in the carton, always stand them vertically on edge. Do not lay dishes flat!  Dishware can withstand more weight and stress when stood on edge.


Please do not hesitate to contact Charles River Movers with any questions or concerns regarding packing for your move at 781-899-6683. Have a safe and happy holiday season!

    Thank you for the tips! Actually the most difficult thing in your home to pack is the kitchen. This is what has the highest risk of being damaged during transit.

    Buy fake ID UK (Friday, 06 October 2017 10:51)

    I put most of my stuff in big bags and suitcases. Some stuff I brought in cardboard boxes, but that takes up a lot of space. I brought 3 suitcases, 3 or 4 bags, and maybe 1 or 2 cardboard boxes. Try to pack a little lighter than that, because you'll be getting stuff that you may want to bring home (books, etc.).
