Take your time packing up your kitchen

If you are moving across the country or even a few towns away, you'll likely hire a moving company to assist you in your transition. Moving services such as Stevens Worldwide Van Lines can help you move your possessions from one place to next, but if you fail to pack your fragile valuables properly, the items may not make it to your new home in one piece.

The kitchen is one room in the house where most of the items are sensitive. If dropped or knocked together too roughly, the plates and cups may crack and break. In order to prevent this from occurring, it is advised you spend a little extra time packing your kitchenware than most rooms in your home. Wrap each glass, plate or bowl individually to provide some added caution through transport.

In addition, you should label each box to give your relocation movers insight into which boxes should be handled with extra care. Of course, professional movers like Stevens will help make sure that all of your possessions are treated properly, but adding "fragile" to the box can prevent them from being stacked below heavier objects.

When it comes to moving, make sure you've spent enough time protecting your belongings. A little extra preparation can assist your movers in making sure your transition is enjoyable, and your possessions become apart of your new life at your new home.
