Even if you don’t purchase moving supplies from us, make sure you have everything you’ll need on-hand before you start the packing process. Items you will want to consider purchasing include:
Purchase sturdy moving boxes in an assortment of sizes. Smaller boxes should be filled with heavier items, like books and dishes, while larger boxes are perfect for lightweight but voluminous items, like pillows and comforters. You may also want to consider purchasing specialty boxes like picture and wardrobe boxes. Picture boxes are designed to pack individual picture frames to protect the glass during the move, while wardrobe boxes help keep your hanging clothes contained.
Tape is definitely something you don’t want to run out of when you’re packing because it’s integral to assembling and sealing your boxes. Always use tape specifically designed for packing to ensure the stability of your boxes.
Delicate items like dishes, glassware, and picture frames need an extra layer of protection to survive your move. While newspapers can do the trick, we recommend purchasing packing paper. Though similar to newspaper, packing paper is ink-free, which means no smudges on your hands or belongings. Wrap each of your delicate items in a sheet of packing paper to keep them from getting chipped or cracked during transport. Really delicate items may also need a layer of bubble wrap for protection. Once everything is boxed up, you can use crumpled packing paper to fill in the extra space in order to prevent items from shifting around.
Labeling all of your boxes with a detailed description of the contents makes the unpacking process much easier. Make sure you have a permanent marker and some labels on hand before you start boxing up your belongings.
