An Overview of the Essential Moving Supplies for Your New Home

You’re about to start a new life somewhere, but you’re putting off the one action that will kickstart your journey: packing. Many people put off packing up and gathering supplies because of how stressful moving can make your life. But what makes moving easier is preparation.

When you know exactly what you need to do for a move, it becomes much easier, no matter how far away you have to transport your belongings. Not only should you prepare what to pack, but you should also prepare the packing supplies you need in advance.

The right moving supplies make all the difference. Here’s a list of what you need to make your move run smoothly.

1. Boxes

Of course, you’re going to want to have plenty of moving boxes. After all, what are you going to pack everything into? But it’s a good idea to choose multiple sizes of moving boxes to fit the variety of items you’re going to need to pack.

You may also want to consider what items you pack together. Pillows can be a great way to pack and keep small delicate items from breaking without taking up another box.

2. Packing Paper

You’ll always want plenty of packing paper to wrap around fragile or sharp objects. This will give you an extra layer of protection, cushioning, and stability for anything you pack in larger boxes.

Be sure to buy ink-free packing paper so nothing transfers or ruins your items while they’re in transit.

3. Packing Tape

Packing tape is an important tool to have throughout the packing process. First, you’ll use it when building boxes to seal and reinforce them. Once you’ve packed all your items inside, you’ll use packing tape to seal everything inside. This ensures a box won’t come open before it arrives at your destination.

4. Labels

Don’t forget about labels when choosing your moving materials. These are easy to forget but will be so useful when you’re unpacking in your new location. Label every box with the room the contents should go in and a quick inventory of what’s inside the boxes.

This will save you from digging through boxes later on and also if you have to add more items later.

5. Bubble Wrapping

Lastly, you’re going to want to have plenty of bubble wrap. Use this for your fragile items to keep them safe during transit. Plates, glasses, ceramic, and porcelain are all delicate and can shatter or crack if not packed well.

Wrap a layer of bubble wrap around the item and also in between items to add the proper cushioning.

The Right Moving Supplies Makes All The Difference

Whether you’re moving across the city or across the country, moving can be stressful. You have to take your entire life and pack it into a few tiny boxes. It’s no wonder people find the task so taxing.

But if you are prepared with the right moving supplies, it can make the process much more smooth. Gather your supplies in advance to make packing, loading, and moving a breeze.
