When relocating to a new residence, the kitchen can seem like a daunting area. From the cookware to dining room equipment, there are a lot of items you need to move from a kitchen space.

Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to make moving your kitchen an easier process. This article will cover some tips for moving items in your kitchen during your upcoming relocation. 

โ€‹Chairs & Tables

When moving chairs and tables, the best way to protect them is by wrapping them in moving blankets. The blanket will help prevent the furniture from getting damaged during the move. If you work with a moving company, they will help provide a high-quality moving blanket. 

โ€‹Plates and Glassesโ€‹

Plates and glasses are fragile items requiring extra protection during moving. When packing these items, you should pay close attention to providing adequate padding. Plates can be separated with individual packing between each item. A dish pack or bubble roll is an excellent choice when packing plates. 


Depending on the number of silverware you own, you likely can place them in a small box. As a good organizational measure, you should wrap them in small groups and keep them protected. Unlike plates or glasses, silverware is more durable and can withstand the demands of a relocation. 

Cookware & Small Kitchen Appliances

Once you have packed all the dining room items, you should move on to the cookware and appliances. If you have the original box for your appliances, you can pack them in it during the relocation. When you don't have the original packaging, you can use a small or mid-size moving box.

Some of the kitchen appliances you should carefully pack are:

  • Microwave
  • Blender
  • Air Fryer 

Items in the Refrigerator and Food Pantry

Transporting food is an important topic, as residential movers won't accept perishable food items. Before the moving day, you should aim to eat all the remaining food in your refrigerator. For non-perishable items in your food pantry, you can transport them in small to mid-size moving boxes. If you don't want to move your pantry's food items, you should consider donating them to a food bank.

Flammable & Combustible Items

Flammable and combustible items can't be transported, as they create a hazard for the movers. When planning the relocation, you should dispose of the flammable items in a proper facility. If you own a fire extinguisher, some fire departments accept donations, and you can schedule a drop-off.
