Moving supplies for any size move
Moving boxes, bubble wrap, packaging supplies, and more!
Once you have picked your moving company, make sure you have the right type of supplies to pack your items. From cardboard boxes, to shipping tape to bubble wrap and everything in between, the supplies you use matter.
Boxes throughout the packing and moving process undergo significant amounts of stress. From assembly to packing to rearranging within your home to placing on the truck, it is critical you have the quality and durability that can hold up to the shifting and jostling that can occur during a move.
Ensuring you have the right type of supplies is essential as well:
- Smaller boxes are ideal for heavier items, such as books
- Specialized packaging such as wardrobe boxes can offer a more organized and efficient way to pack and move your clothing
- Beware of the type of tape you use, as not all tape is equal. There are significant differences in packing tape vs. shipping tape, as well as the strength of the adhesive within those tapes. One thing not to skimp on.
- Always remember to protect your items and don’t leave any empty air in your boxes, which is a primary cause of damage. Depending on the type of items you’re packing, bubble wrap or kraft paper can mean the difference between items arriving damaged or not
Whether you’re making a local move or an international move, picking the right packing supplies will give you one less thing to worry about.
