Packing up a Kitchen Aid mixer for a cross-country move
Moving across country soon, and I am trying to figure out the best way to move my Kitchen Aid mixer without damage. We are flying and hiring a mover for our stuff. I foolishly threw away the box it came in (took up too much space in my tiny apartment when I got it!) Anyone have any tips? I am thinking of wrapping it in bubble tape and tossing it into a box with a bunch of old towels or perhaps packing peanuts. Thanks in advance!
You could always have the movers pack it. That way if it is damaged, it is on them. I have moved several times and every time the movers did the packing, nothing was broken. Unfortunately, the same could not be said when I packed us.
I think bubble wrap and the towels will work fine. Packing peanuts tend to be a big pain in the neck. You could also wrap in bubble wrap and fill the rest of the box with old newspapers crumbled up. Good luck with the move!
