Moving & Packing Essentials: Packing Supplies

Moving is a stressful time, one that quite possibly means that your items will be damaged if you don't package and box them correctly. How can you be sure that you're doing the best you can when you are packing up your house? Here are some great moving and packing tips:

Take inventory of everything in your house. Make a list which names everything fragile or special - items which will require special attention when packing. Heavy and awkward items should also be listed and mentioned to your local mover. Once your list is complete, it's time to go supply shopping.

Moving and packing supplies can be purchased anywhere. I recommend asking your local mover for their prices or if they recommend any local stores. You can even purchase your moving supplies online, however you'd have to pay shipping. If you start preparing in advance, you should have plenty of time to price shop. 

If you're not interested in spending money for boxes, ask your local grocery store. Wine/liquor stores also have boxes with handles and they are generally durable as well. Ask the manager a few weeks in advance if he/she has any boxes. Usually they will set some aside for your or give you the days that they get big deliveries. Keep in mind that the larger the box, the more difficult it is to secure fragile items.

If you have a larger house, here are some supplies that we recommend having on hand to pack everything safely:

  • 15 Small Moving Boxes
  • 8 Medium Moving Boxes
  • 8 Large Moving Boxes
  • 5 Heavy Duty Boxes
  • 3 Wardrobe Boxes
  • Newspaper
  • 1 Container of Bubble
  • 1 Black Marker (for Labeling Boxes)
  • 3-4 Rolls of Clear Tape

Contact your local moving company and give them a run down of the items in your house. They can give you a good idea of the supplies that you need. They can also give a quote for packing services if you don't want to pack yourself!

Don't mix your important paperwork or documents with other household items while moving. Place all those things into a separate box and mark them with labels so that it will be easy for you to find them after moving.

All the things are necessary before making a move and this can help you to make your move faster. While going for distance moving , searching long distance movers in advance will help you to choose the right company for your move.

Thanks for going over some good supplies to have for moving. I appreciate that you mentioned to have a list of everything that's fragile. This sounds useful to determine what would need special attention or packaging, especially if you need to buy additional products to protect them.
