How to Pack Small Appliances

Items such as blenders, radios and clocks should be packed with plenty of padding to keep their electronic components safe from damage. Appliances should be wrapped and packed in a box padded with newsprint.

Most people use their small appliances fairly often, so what can you do to prevent damage to them during a move? Read on for our tips on safely moving small appliances.

Kitchen Appliances

How can you keep small appliances safe in a move? 

  • Pack everyday small appliances like clocks and radios with extra padding to protect their electronic components.
  • Wrap each item individually.
  • It’s fine to pack your small appliances in the same box.
  • Pad with towels for safer transport.
  • Take care that cords will not scratch other appliances. Wrap cords around their respective appliances.
  • Remove any batteries from appliances before packing.
  • If you are packing a steam iron, empty its water and dry it out before wrapping it for the box.

Our recent move from the Twin Cities to Michigan was handled beautifully from start to finish, from the efficient and friendly service by Ron to the exceptional packing, loading and unloading by the on site crew. Special thanks to Jerry, our driver, and his side-kick Tim, who were truly angels in disguise during such an important time in our lives. I hope we don’t move again, but I’m sure that if we do we couldn’t find a company that would do a better job! Thank you – we are very, very grateful
