How To Pack Small Appliances

Small kitchen appliances can be lifesavers in the first few days in your new home. Make sure they arrive at your new place safely: this helpful tutorial will show you exactly how to pack your small appliances (like your toaster, microwave, or coffee maker).
Pro tip: If you still have the appliance’s original packaging, use that to protect it.
If you don’t have the original packaging, gather these supplies instead: moving boxes, packing paper, paper padding, foam or bubble wrap, tape, a marker, and scissors.
For all your appliances, cover the plug-in prongs with a piece of foam or bubble wrap to keep it from scratching the finish of the appliance. Also, remove any parts inside the appliance (like trays) and pack them separately.
For larger items, cut paper padding to fit the appliance, then gather the cord and wrap the appliance, like a present. Use tape to secure the padding around the appliance,--just don’t tape to the appliance itself to avoid damage to the finish.
To pack smaller items, gather the cord and wrap the appliance in several sheets of packing paper. Again, secure the paper around the appliance, not the appliance itself.
Before you place the appliances in the box, line the box with packing paper, then set the appliance inside. You may be able to fit multiple appliances in one box, or you may have to use separate boxes for each appliance, depending on size. We recommend filling any empty space with crushed packing paper to ensure a snug fit.
Once the box is full, close it, tape it up, and write the contents on the outside of the box. If any of your appliances have glass parts, write “FRAGILE” on the box so you know not to load heavy items on top of it.
