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.

    Just wanted to express our appreciation for such a pleasant moving experience! Since we hadn’t ever done this before, we were apprehensive. But from the very first phone contact, through Ron’s two site visits, continuing with the packing, loading, and unloading, everything went so smoothly, we are very impressed! Let each individual, who was involved with our move, know how satisfied we are and they are to be commended for their jobs they did.
