Supplies Needed for Packing Your Stuff

Once you finished preparing your packing list with all the items that will be moved, you should move on to preparing supplies that are required to pack the items.

Packing supplies can be easily purchased from a local retailer, a supermarket or even a store that sells office supplies. Compare prices between the competitor stores to get the best deal.

Below are some of the supplies and accessories that will be required for packing before moving:

Moving Boxes and Cartons

If the grocery stores and retailers located near your house are kind enough, they will give you some boxes and cartons for free. Make sure you alert them a week before you will need the boxes, so that they start collecting the boxes and keep them aside for you. Also, tell the stores how many boxes you will need.

Bubble Wrap

Bubble wrap is an important supply for packing and moving. Not only it is always fun to play with bubble wrap while packing your stuff, but it will is also quite important to be used since it protects fragile items from damage.

Hundred feet of bubble wrap is usually enough for moving, but you should still make a rough estimate of your requirement. It will be used to wrap all electronic items and even some of the dishes.

Marker and Tape

A permanent market will be used to mark all the boxes and cartons and will help in better identification of the boxes. Use the marker to mark boxes with fragile items inside and write “Fragile” on them. This will alert the movers to take more care when handling them.

Tape will help you in sealing off the boxes so that your items don’t fall out during the loading and unloading process.

Foam

These are little soft pieces that fill up empty spaces in the moving boxes. It is ideal to fill foam in boxes that contain dishes and glassware so that such fragile items do not bang onto each other and get damaged.

Tips for Packing Furniture before Moving

Tips for Packing Furniture before Moving

Whether a moving company will be helping you with your relocation or not, it is important to pack your furniture appropriately so that it reaches your new home safely.

Being prepared for packing and remaining organized is the best advice that will help you in packing and moving the furniture safely without taking on a lot of stress.

Following are some steps that must be followed to pack furniture efficiently before moving.

1. Make a list

The first important step of packing the furniture is making a list of all the furniture pieces that will be moved. This will keep you organized and will also help you keep track of your furniture when it reaches your new place.

This list will also indicate how much packing material you will need.

2. Clean and clear

Before packing the furniture make sure that you clean it. Do some dusting and clear the things that are inside your furniture. If it is a book shelf, remove all the books and pack those books in smaller boxes.

3. Disassemble

Large furniture cannot be moved in its original form. Large furniture pieces such as beds and large dining tables will have to be disassembled into smaller parts so that they can fit in the moving vehicle. This will also help make the loading and unloading process easier.

Once you have reached your new place, you can then assemble the furniture again in the desired room to bring it back to its original form.

4. Wrap the furniture and use boxes

Once the furniture is disassembled, wrap it in packing material or bubble wrap so that the furniture does not get scratches in the process. Once the bubble wrap is wrapped, use a tape to secure the packing.

Disassembled furniture often gets smaller and such parts can be packed in boxes. Find the boxes of appropriate sizes and put the furniture in them. Label the boxes as well before loading them on the moving vehicle so that you do not forget where to find the missing pieces of the furniture.
