Packing your kitchen appliances for storage – the materials 

The first step to getting your kitchen appliances safely to the storage unit and making them last is to have high-quality packing materials. Here is what you will need. 

  • When packing your kitchen appliances for storage, the first item on your list should be boxes. Try and get sturdy boxes that match the size of your kitchen appliances. You can get the boxes on the internet, but before buying, make sure to measure your kitchen appliances. 
  • The second item on your list should be wrapping materials. When it comes to wrapping materials, you do not have to look very hard. Packing paper will do the job. Get extra packing paper because it is not expensive and you might need it. 
  • Forget about skimping on tape because you will need it to secure the edges of boxes. Seal the boxes well to prevent moisture from getting inside. 
  • The fourth item is a marker so that you can label the boxes. By labeling boxes, it will be easier to get them out of the storage unit when that time comes. 
  • Finally, get twist ties. Use the twist ties to secure the cords, preventing them from swinging around in the box. Make sure to reorganize the storage unit before putting kitchen appliances inside.
