Information on how to pack your kitchen for shipping.

You’ll need:

  1. Tape
  2. Small and medium boxes
  3. Bubble wrap
  4. Peanuts or blank newsprint

How to pack:

  1. Wrap each glass and mug in bubble wrap and tape shut. Put layers of bubble wrap in between plates and bowls.
  2. Fill bottom of box with peanuts or wadded paper. Layer in glasses and mugs with peanuts and paper, or place stacks of layered plates and bowls on top. If your glasses have stems, place them upright, as if you were putting them on the table. Fill in sides and top with peanuts and wadded paper.
  3. For larger breakable items – Pyrex dishes, china serving bowls, glass coffee pots – wrap in bubble wrap and tape shut. Put two or three smaller items or one larger item in the center of a small box filled with peanuts. Make sure you put a layer of peanuts or wadded paper between smaller items.
  4. Seal and mark “Fragile – Kitchen.” You’re all finished!

How To Pack Non-Breakable Kitchen Items

You’ll need:

  1. Tape
  2. Medium and large boxes
  3. Your kitchen towels and linens
  4. Blank newsprint

How to pack:

  1. Select a few important pieces of essential cookware – a couple of pots, a frying pan, some cooking spoons, a spatula, and utensils for the first day you’re in your new home.
  2. Put blank newsprint (or ripped-open paper bags) between the items. Fill in spaces with wadded newsprint.
  3. Seal and mark “Kitchen.” On the box you need for cooking when you arrive, mark “Kitchen – First Day.” You’re all done!
