1. Declutter and Organise:

Before you even think about packing, take some time to declutter and organise your kitchen. Start by going through your cabinets, drawers, and pantry, and get rid of any items you no longer need or use. Consider donating or selling them to lighten your load and make the move more efficient. Organise your remaining items into categories, making it easier to pack and unpack in your new kitchen.

2. Gather Necessary Packing Supplies:

To ensure the safety of your kitchen items during transit, it's important to have the right packing supplies. Stock up on sturdy boxes in various sizes, packing paper, bubble wrap, packing tape, and marker pens. Knightmovers can provide you with high-quality packing materials, ensuring that your kitchen items are well protected throughout the move.

3. Start with Non-Essential Items:

Begin by packing non-essential kitchen items such as seasonal cookware, extra baking supplies, and specialty appliances that you rarely use. Wrap delicate items individually in packing paper or bubble wrap and place them securely in boxes, filling any empty spaces with crumpled paper to prevent shifting. Label each box clearly with its contents and the room it belongs to, making unpacking a breeze.

4. Safely Packing Your Fridge and Freezer:

When it comes to packing your fridge and freezer, there are a few important steps to follow:

Start by emptying the contents and throwing away any perishable items that won't survive the move.

Remove all the removable shelves, drawers, and other components. Clean them thoroughly and dry them before packing.

Wrap all the parts in bubble wrap or blankets to prevent damage during transit.

Use appliance dollies or straps to securely move the refrigerator and freezer, ensuring that they are upright at all times. Our experienced Knightmovers team will handle this delicate task with the utmost care, using the right equipment and techniques to protect your appliances.

Once you arrive at your new home, place the fridge and freezer in their designated spots and allow them to settle for a few hours before plugging them in.

5. Secure Your Fragile and Breakable Items:

Your kitchen is likely to house delicate and breakable items, such as glassware, ceramics, and china. To ensure their safety, wrap each piece individually in packing paper or bubble wrap. Place them upright in sturdy boxes with plenty of cushioning materials to prevent any movement. Clearly label these boxes as "Fragile" so that our Knightmovers team can handle them with extra care.
