Is it worth DIY packing your kitchen? How do you make sure your appliances are protected? Find out in this free and easy guide from Movers.com – or find out how much it would cost to have a professional handle everything. It’s free and easy.

Have you been eyeing up the kitchen, and trying to figure out how you're going to fit it all in boxes?

You're not alone - and I know, it's a daunting task.

It would probably be easier to go on a crusade, slay a dragon, save a damsel, and hope they come with a new set of appliances - because packing up the old ones can get a bit... messy.

Of course, you could always hire a professional to pack it all for you - but that's expensive, isn't it?

Well, it's time to stop guessing and start finding out. This new guide from Movers.com explains it all. You can learn how to pack your appliances properly, how to move them safely, and even how much it would cost to hire an expert - and the best part is, it's all 100% free.

You don't have to take my word for it though - or even read this blog to get the answers. If you want to skip the middle-man and jump straight to the full, free guide, just click here.

It's the easiest way to find out how much time, effort, and supplies you'll need to pack up your kitchen and kitchen appliances for your upcoming move.

The full guide explains it all, step-by-step, so you can decide which parts to DIY, and which parts require a professional. If you want my opinion though - use the guide to pack up the kitchen yourself to save a few bucks, then hire a professional to move it all for you, so you don't have to worry about dropping anything.

I know, it looks hard to pack up a kitchen, and the instructions can vary widely based on the type and number of appliances, but the first step in the free Movers.com guide is the same for everyone, even if you're hiring a professional moving service.

A thorough cleaning of all your appliances ensures you don't transfer any bacteria or mess from your old kitchen to your new one, and makes sure you're not leaving a trail of bread crumbs all through the house. However, that's as far as you should go before deciding if you're going to hire a professional - because they'll handle the next step for you if you do.

The next step can be a little trickier and may require some basic tools. This is when you remove any detachable parts such as drip trays, microwave plates, and mixer attachments.

As you can see, this isn't exactly a difficult process, but it does require time, patience, and probably a couple of screwdrivers - and we haven't really gotten to the packing stage yet.

Each detached part should be wrapped carefully and individually, before being stored in either the same box as the appliance it came from or a second box that has been properly labeled, to prevent it from being lost in the move. The question is, what are you packing it in?

The full guide includes a comprehensive list of packing materials that can either be purchased or found around your home - and used to protect your appliances from damage during their travel. However, if you're using a professional moving service to pack for you, you probably don't have to worry about this. They'll usually supply all the packing materials, and they'll probably have better options than you do at home, like furniture pads.

That's it, that's everything. If you've been following along, your kitchen could be fully packed by now... but just in case you're not all packed up yet, let's talk about one more free tool from Movers.com.

This is one of my favorites because it's useful no matter how you're moving.

Hiring a full-service agency, doing it all yourself, or anywhere in between - you'll still want to know what a professional will or would have cost, and it's easy to find out.

Just click right here to access the free estimate tool from Movers.com, and click "Get Quotes" on their website.

They'll send you 7 estimates from local, professional, top-rated moving companies - absolutely free and with no obligation.
