Collect packing materials: For packing kitchenware, you will need large boxes (for packing light weight and hard items such as plastic kitchen ware, dish racks, small appliances etc); medium boxes ( for packing heavier items like pots, pans, drawer contents, utensils etc); heavy duty boxes with thick double walls ( for packing fragile items like plates, glasses etc); unprinted newswrap for packing fragile items including food items and appliances, packing and sealing tapes and marker labels.
