    How to pack your pantry for a move

    When packing your pantry you should only bring food that will remain edible and that won’t cause unnecessary damage during transport. However, there are a few exceptions from this rule, as you will see outlined in the list below.

    • Canned food. Canned goods are known to have long shelve lives and their size allows for easy packing in moving boxes.
    • Boxed and bagged foods. Unopened condiments are also pretty safe for transport. Because of their size, we recommend that you place them on top of unfilled moving boxes.
    • Cooking ingredients. Put the rare cooking ingredients in plastic or glass containers and make sure they are sealed shut. Set the containers in moving boxes and you should be good to go.


    Don’t forget to pack rare spices and ingredients you’ve gathered over the years!

    As you might’ve guessed, you don’t need many supplies for packing your kitchen a few moving boxes is all you need. Just be sure to check your local grocery shop a few days before you move, so you can get your hands on some free moving boxes.


    Anything else we didn’t mention above you should find a way to get rid of. You could either throw it away, gift it, or even make some delicious meals (have you tried these excellent moving day meals ideas?). However, if you are moving shorter distances, then you might be able to get away with packing items that we didn’t mention on the list.

    Although, if you do decide to move with some of the items that are not the list, and you are, for example from Clearwater, Florida, make sure to hire packing services Clearwater FL. We’d rather that you be safe than sorry.

    Ask for help

    Why Choose Us?

    The level of professionalism I received from the first phone call to the last was awesome! The three movers (Charles, Tray and Owen) were so courteous. They showed up 10 mins early, they asked questions and were so polite. They had everything that was needed to make this move safe and efficient. I was very happy with the service I received. This was a big move for us and Big Ban’s Moving Company made it a breeze. Josh informed me that his wife, Brooke, carefully hires the guys that work as movers and I have to commend her for her hiring abilities. These guys were awesome, they were nice, and were ready and willing to work. We will call Big Man’s from now on for our moving needs and I recommend that you give them a chance. Their prices are very competitive, their customer service is excellent, and you can’t beat having peace of mind when your belongings are involved. Also, don’t forget to tip.
