Professional Packing Tips for Moving: How to Pack Kitchen Items Like a Pro

Relocating takes efforts and is a time-consuming task. It is undoubtedly stressful if you are planning to pack your household and move by own.

If you want to know how to pack and move fast or are interested in learning ways to make moving more comfortable and less stressful, follow the tips below.

These kitchen packing tips can make the relocating process a little easier for you.

Packing Kitchen Appliances:

Prepare the box with at least 3-to-4-inch scrunch layers (packing paper) under it to protect against any shock. Now wrap the appliance in paper as best as possible and place it at the bottom of the box. If your appliance has dials, knobs and fragile elements, protect them by facing them into the wall.

Packing Canned foods, heavy pantry foodstuffs and beverages:

Use small boxes to pack these pantry items, keep the bottles in an upright position, and push tightly together and organise them in an orderly manner. Wrap all your wine bottles, glass jars and other glass bottles in packing paper. Use scrunch to build even layers and plug any gaps.


Before you pack your microwave, remove the inside glass disc and also the roller. Prepare the box and build a 3-to-4-inch layer of scrunch at the bottom of the box. Now pack the glass disc and roller separately and keep them in the same box. Now, place the microwave vertically in the box against the wall. Cover the microwave with paper once packed.

Alternatively, if you hire professional removalists in Melbourne, leave the microwave out of the box. We will take care of it with proper packing materials and give it cushion-like padding.

The best advice is, leave the packing and relocating tasks to professionals and save yourself from all the mental and physical stress.

Packing plastic, Tupperware and non-breakable items:

These items don’t need wrapping with paper, as they are unbreakable. Just place them in the box in an orderly manner (saving space), shuffle them around, so they sit firmly—Pack small containers inside big containers. Where ever necessary, use scrunch to make a flat layer to build on or firmly close a Tupperware box.

Packing kitchen utensils:

Wrap forks and spoons in their groups and pack knives very carefully and then place them in a box. Wrap utensils like spatulas, egg flips, basting brushes and tongs in groups of 5 or 6. When you pack these items, make sure that sharp objects do not poke out of the paper, as they can be harmful.

Packing Pots and Pans:

Wrap each pan and pot individually in packing paper and place them on their base. Place the biggest item and cooking plate against the wall of the box. You can save a lot of space by putting small pots into big pots separated by paper layers. Create layers to minimise movement and maximise the number of items packed in each box.
