I would pack all liquids and open bottles in seperate boxes.  I don’t know about your moving company, but mine wouldn’t allow anything that was open and any liquids or flammable objects (like lighters) in the moving van.  We had to transport all that stuff on our own.  Also, make sure that you have things you will need right away packed in your own car.  We couldn’t find our plates or dishes for weeks (maybe we should have packed a few and kept them with us).  As for the food, be prepared to throw away or give away anything open in the fridge and freezer.  You might also need to drive with all open food containers in the pantry (again our movers wouldn’t allow it).

The main thing I would say is label everything!

It’s especially important to separate (& label) what you will need right away (e.g. dishes, bathroom essentials) and what can safely wait (no need to rush to unpack knicknacks! Nice to be able to take a break from moving.)
