Preparing for a move can be overwhelming, but with the right supplies it is much easier. First up are boxes to hold all of your belongings and items you want moved carefully. However, have you considered all of the other things that could ease this transition? Here are some must-have items to help your move run as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
Packing paper is the unsung hero of packing. Even better than bubble wrap, it’s useful for protecting surfaces from chips and cracks or to protect against dirt and dust when moving tabletops inside your home to the truck outside. Not sold on packing paper? Try foam peanuts instead! The biodegradable kind dissolves in water so they’ll also protect anything you’re shipping while being environmentally-friendly too!
Boxes can’t be carried without tape, and there are many ways to use the tape. For example, you don’t want boxes falling open while carrying them or during transport because it is too easy for items to fall out of the box! Tape keeps all cardboard together as a box so that they aren’t destroyed easily before moving day when you need everything in working condition. You also might have heard about how packing paper does not stick very well onto objects such as glass vases? Packing material helps protect breakable items from other heavy things inside your boxes but would likely just rip off if left alone with no protection on top of it (like taping). Boxed up materials will help keep each item secure throughout its transit.
Color-coding boxes is a great way to organize your storage unit.
Markers are an excellent alternative for labeling sticky notes that might fall off in transit or get lost when you’re moving into the storage facility. Use different colored markers (e.g., blue, green, red) and color code each room’s contents so they’ll be more organized during unpacking time!
Furniture Covers Protect Your Investment
It can be tempting to throw a sheet over your couch or other pieces when you are moving, but that is not enough. In addition to protecting against dust and scratches during the move, furniture covers also protect from pests like insects or rodents.
Bubble wrap is not just a fun item to pop, it’s also an incredibly useful tool for protecting your fragile items from damage during transportation. Bubble Wrap™ can be used on many different types of objects and will help protect them in the event that they are dropped or mishandled by movers. It only costs around $20 which makes this option very affordable if you’re looking to safeguard multiple household belongings when moving out-of-state!
