WHAT PACKING MATERIALS TO BUY FOR A MOVE



Getting ready for a move as we know is stressful. Among all the things you have to get in order oftentimes we forget about the materials we need to actually start packing. In that case random boxes and containers are used along with blankets and clothes wrapped around items to protect them.


So we begin to wonder, does this happen because people don’t know what items they need to efficiently pack? Or is it just because you’re just trying to get it done last minute?

No matter what your answer is, we are here to help you, and believe it or not it can be as simple as ordering it all from Amazon!


When it comes to packing you always want to make sure you have the proper materials so your boxes don’t fall apart and your belongings don’t get damaged. So today we are going to go over all the materials you need to pack up your home before you move!

This is a stretch roll wrap that is great for wrapping couches or items that could get scratched or pulled during the moving process. It is also great for wrapping items together and keeping them in place when you don't want them to seperate.


2)

These boxes are made specifically for your glasses and dishes in the kitchen, as they have slots in them to place your items so they don't roll around an break in transportation.

These are specifically for your pictures and mirrors to help them stay protected. They are offered in various sizes so please choose what best suits your needs.


5)

It is important to have different size boxes available when packing so you're not wasting space or allowing items to move around to much because they are in to big of a box. You also want to make sure you don't have to small of a box where items are packed tightly together to the point where they could break easily during the moving process.

These boxes are made to help protect your flat screen TV's. If you can't find adjustable boxes like the ones pictured above, just be sure that you're buying the right size to fit your TV appropriately.

Always have back up packing tape. You can never be to careful when it comes to taping up a box and ensuring that the top and bottom are strong enough so they don't get damaged.

Having packing paper that is appropriate for what your wrapping is key. You can never have to much packing paper even if it is needed to fill some spaces or for extra padding around a special item.

Make sure to have a proper set of ratchet straps to make sure all your belongings are secure no matter where you are going or what you are traveling in.

Blankets are crucial when it comes to covering iems for protection. From tables, bed frames, or any type wood blankets will help protect them from being damaged.


14)

These rubber bands are a great marking tool for yourself and movers when it comes to labeling where you want your boxes to go. This is an alternative to actually labeling your boxes if you choose.

The shoulder dolly is an item we highly reccomend when you're considering on moving heavier items yourself. This is perfect for helping you mantain control of the item and not hurting yourself when it comes to carrying something.

These boxes are perfect for someone who is looking to move the items in their closet without taking them off the hangers! The convenience is at your fingertips with these.
