Preparation is major factor when packing a kitchen. Not only you have to handle fragile kitchenware such as glasses and silverware, but you'll also need to prepare your appliances for a move.
Packing Your Kitchen

Hiring local day labor is another option to move. They might offer you flat or lower hourly rates, but there are plenty of scammers out there.

Another important factor to consider is mover reviews.
