Appliances first or painted cabinets?

I am giving my kitchen a face lift and will be painting cabinets and replacing appliances. I am worried that putting in the new appliances may cause accidental nicks or chips when they put them in if I paint the cabinets first but I’m not sure what the best order is. If I was installing cabinets I would definitely do appliances last but I am worried about the delivery people not being careful with painted cabinets. Any thoughts on this?
