Please remember; always keep fragile materials in separate boxes. In these boxes please make remarks on fragile. During loading all packing boxes on the vehicle you may put these boxes on the top to avoid transportation frictions. In such friction, these fragile materials may be damaged. 

Keep all the electrical gadgets in the kitchen for a complete day. These electrical gadgets of the kitchen are of extensive use such as griller, microwave oven, toaster, dishwasher, and others. Even these gadgets are used every day. As a result, these should be packed and taken with special care.

Share and care:

While packing the utensils and bowls, just keep an eye on the cobwebbed sink, you will find the unused utensils. In the cupboard, you will find many jars having spices from many days ago. These are of no such use in new places. Always try to be cruel during leaving these unused perishable products. You may contact nearby shelters or cheap crockeries to sell or donate those. Nowadays there are many other systems such as Olx.com and others where you may upload pictures of your unused bowls, utensils, and others. You may sell them at low prices or donate those. In this way you will be able to lessen your weight, packing costs as well as transportation costs at a stretch. 

Ensure the safe packing of liquids:

  • Before shifting, be sure of unsealed alcohol bottles or wine bottles. Some other liquids are also present in the kitchen cupboard or refrigerator. These are different sauces, vinegar, oils like coconut, mustard, olive, ethanol, and others. 
  • During this time, you should try to use those things in such a manner that bottles become empty before shifting. If you have some premium wine bottles which can’t be vacated in a hurry, you should inform your packers and movers to serve a special heat-sensitive and bump-proof packing system for you. 
  • For your sauce and other liquids, you may use two to three rounds of adhesive tapes for protecting those from damage and leakage. If liquids are leaked they may spoil other packages. 

Start packing electronic gadgets:

  • Initially, you should disconnect all the electrical connections from the electronic gadgets. These gadgets will be cool in this period.
  • After the cooling period, you should detach all the electric wires from the gadgets. In this stage, you should put all the electric wires within the ziplock bags with numbers and marking. Putting numbers and markings will help make those connected properly after shipping. It is the best system for finding those wires without spending time and effort. 
  • In this period you should pack the electric gadgets with plastic wrappers. A bubble wrapper is the best option to cover up and pack to upload in the transport vehicle. If some gadgets need dismantling, like the dishwasher, you should follow the manual. Initially, you should find out the manual and warranty cards, purchasing receipts, and others because these are important in this shifting process. 
  • Why are warranty and purchasing bills important for electronic gadgets?: Without these documents (hard or softcopy) you will not be able to claim any kind of damage from the insurance. After moving if you are finding any kind of damage, or scratch on your kitchen wires, you need to claim the money. If the repair cost becomes higher or equal to the purchasing bills, you may get money to purchase a new one. So, during shifting, you should keep all of these documents in a folder or file. 

Don’t pack flammables and chargeable:

Before packing just remember that, you should not take any types of flammable products. It may include burning gas, fuels, coals, kerosene, or other flammable liquids. In the kitchen, we use many small instruments which are chargeable. It includes a hand blender, shaker, and others. These chargeable and flammable products may reach the burning point due to transportation jumping, friction, or others. Sometimes, these products lit up due to their placement near the car battery. It may incur accidents. 

Some important tips to pack your utensils:

During doing all of these steps you should spray sanitizer and clean them properly. After cleaning and sanitization when you pack those, after shipping you can use those just after unpacking. 

Don’t make any experiments regarding flammable chargeable products and perishables. Please follow these above-mentioned instructions. 

Still, if you are confused about purchasing packing materials, boxes, covers, their shapes, and amounts, you may buy the kitchen shipping kits from nearby grocery or essential stores. These are nowadays available on online platforms like Amazon, Flipkart, and others. 

You should pack the last day’s dinner or lunch utensils and other kitchen belongings in a separate box, with a mark of essentiality. This separate box will be helpful for you to unpack and you can use those for lunch and dinner just after moving to the new destination. Otherwise, you may need to pack all of the boxes to collect the utensils for taking food. Otherwise, you may keep some disposables for this purpose to complete the last-day dinner in the old house and the first lunch or dinner in the new destination. It will help save both your time and money because this time you will be a bit busy.
