Moving to a New Home? Don't Forget these Essential Packing Supplies!

Last updated 6 years ago

Let’s face it, nobody likes moving, but if you use the right supplies and resources, you may just find that moving isn’t that bad. The following article features a list of essential supplies you’ll need to make your move hassle-free.

  • Boxes

It’s no secret that you’re going to need boxes for your move, but most people don’t know what type of boxes they need. You can make packing and unpacking easier with the right box, so be sure to pick up wardrobe boxes for your closet, mirror carton boxes that will protect your mirror throughout the move, and lamp boxes that won’t damage your lamp shades.

  • Package Padding

Many people buy foam peanuts, bubble wrap, and other industrial packing padding materials, but you can use many of the items you have lying around your home right now. You can use bath towels, winter clothes, dish towels, socks, and other soft items to pad your breakables. You may still need to purchase some industrial packing materials, but using what you already have will save you money.

  • Markers

Before you pack your kid’s markers, use them to label your boxes. This will help you organize your boxes throughout the move so that unpacking is a breeze. Consider using a different color for each room.

  •  Pen and Paper

During your move, you’re likely to forget what items you put in each box. Therefore, make a list of each item you placed in each box and tape that paper to the box. This way, you can unpack what you need first and get to the other boxes once the kitchen and bedrooms have been set up.

  • Professional Movers

Professional movers will be your greatest ally when tackling your move. Hiring an experienced team of professionals will take the stress out of moving, packing, loading, and unloading.
