Chairs and Tables

Two of the bigger items in your kitchen you can easily take care of these pieces by wrapping them in blankets to prevent any scratches or damages.


Especially for fragile plates, you'll want to separate each individual plate with padding of some sort.


Stuff each glass with packing material. Something as simple as plastic bags or newspapers works well for this.


You'll want to make sure that all silverware is packed tightly in a small box to prevent pieces from bouncing around during the move. If you have extra boxes handy, consider separating silverware by category to make the unpacking process easier. 

Cookware and Small Appliances

You should always keep the original packaging for cookware and small appliances for this exact reason. The easiest way to transport these items will be to put them back in the box they came in.

Food Pantry

Moving with food is a drag. Consider donating to a local food bank so you won't have to deal with this.

Refrigerator Items

You should always use or dispose of food in the fridge prior to your move.

Flammable and Combustible Items

Hazardous items need to be left behind as they are not permitted to travel in a moving truck.
