Packing Supplies for Your Move

Packing Supplies for Your Move

Moving day is typically one of three things: exciting, stressful, or surprising (when you notice delicate antiques cracked or broken). With lots of planning and organization, you can make your moving day a successful one by using the proper packing supplies.

When you are ready to box up different rooms in your house, start with a packing list so are sure to have the right supplies for your move. Read the following to get started and make your move as smooth as possible:

  • Invest in moving kits. If you have never purchased a moving kit before, you’ve been missing out. It can make life a lot easier than trying to gather all of the packaging supplies you need for a move one by one. Moving kits contain moving boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, and labels for different rooms in your house. You can customize your moving kit to include a variety of different shapes and sizes of corrugated boxes.
  • Purchase a lot of packing wrap and cushioning. You don’t want to do all this packing and moving to end up with damaged belongings when you unpack. Invest in peanuts, inflatable bags, foam, or bubble cushioning to provide extra protection to all of your delicate belongings.  Cushioning can also be purchased in all different sizes.
  • Label everything. Labeling will make your life much easier once you arrive to your new destination. Label by the different rooms in your house, i.e. kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, etc. On moving day, this will help to delegate appropriate boxes to the appropriate rooms.
  • Separate items with corrugated boxes. Corrugated boxes are heavy duty and specific for packaging and shipping. Layered inside with linerboard, corrugated boxes offer crush resistance. They are perfect for glass items that may break and scratch and other fragile items that need to be separated while in transit.
  • Address boxes with shipping labels. Anything that you are having shipped to your new address should be labeled. You can purchase shipping labels that indicate the importance of your items, such as “Glass- Handle with Care,” “This Side Up-Handle With Care,” and “Don’t Drop, Don’t Crush.” Shipping labels are some of the most important things to remember with your shipping supplies.
  • Purchase edge protectors. For special items like mirrors and artwork, it is a good idea to purchase edge protectors. They get secured to the corner of the item so that it is not damaged during the move.
  • Don’t skimp on tape. You don’t want to arrive at your new home with open boxes and items falling out. Double wrapping items is a recipe for disaster. There are a variety of tapes available, including water activated tapes, which provide a secure bond.

It’s not uncommon to get caught up in the stress of moving. Make your moving process an easy one from the start by preparing with all the right packing supplies to ensure that your household items arrive without a scratch.
