How to Pack Kitchen Aid Mixer for Moving

There is no doubt that Kitchen Aid mixers are very expensive. As a result, if you are moving to a new home, you will want to take extra care in packing your Kitchen Aid mixer to avoid damaging its attachments or primary components. Having said that, given the heavy size and weight of a kitchen aid mixer, it is very important to have a tailored strategy for moving the mixer as opposed to your other traditional kitchenware. In this blog post we will give you a step by step guide on how exactly you should go about packing your kitchen aid mixer for moving. Let's get started.

Step #1: Remove all attachments from your Kitchen Aid mixer

The first step is to remove all of the attachments from your mixer. This includes the bowl, beater, and dough hook. Once you have removed all of these attachments, you should then wash them thoroughly with soap and water. Once they are clean, you can then dry them off with a towel.

Step #2: Wrap the bowl, beater, and dough hook in bubble wrap

Once you have removed all of the attachments from your Kitchen Aid mixer, the next step is to wrap each one of them individually in bubble wrap. This will help to protect them from getting damaged during the move. Bubble wrap in particular is highly recommended when packing for a move because it provides a high level of cushioning and protection.

Step #3: Place the attachments in a box

Once you have wrapped each attachment in bubble wrap, the next step is to place them all in a box. You should make sure that the box is big enough to fit all of the attachments, but not so big that it will be difficult to carry. Make sure to label your box so that you know what is inside of it which will make things significantly easier during the unpacking process when you relocate to your new home or apartment.

Step #4: Seal up the box for your attachments

Once all of the attachments are in the box, seal it up with packing tape. Make sure that the box is securely sealed so that nothing falls out or gets lost during the move. The best way to tape your box is to use packing tape that is at least 2 inches wide and to tape the box using the "H taping method" which means taping along all three seams of the box for maximum reinforcement.

Step #5: Wrap the mixer itself in bubble wrap

Now it's time to wrap the mixer itself in bubble wrap. Like your attachment components, make sure to take the time to cover all sides of the mixer and use multiple layers of bubble wrap for added protection.

Step #6: Place the mixer in a box

Once you have wrapped the mixer in bubble wrap, place it in a box. Make sure to use a bigger box than the one you used for the attachments so that the mixer has plenty of room to move around. It is imperative that you keep the mixer and attachments separate to avoid any damage to the mixer during the actual moving process.

Step 7: Seal up the box for your mixer

Once you have placed the mixer in the box, seal it up with packing tape. Make sure that the box is securely sealed so that nothing falls out or gets lost during the move.

Step 8: Label your boxes

Finally, after wrapping and packing your mixer and its attachments make sure to label your boxes so that you know what is inside of them. This will make unpacking significantly easier when you reach your destination. When labeling your boxes , be as specific as possible. For example, you might label your box containing the attachments "Kitchen Aid Mixer Attachments" and your box containing the mixer itself "Kitchen Aid Mixer."
