5 Must-Have Supplies From a Moving Company

1. Packing Tape

When getting tape for a move, it’s important to get tape that’s strong enough to take a bit of wear and tear. This can include packing tape, which will adhere tightly to boxes to ensure they’re adequately sealed. Other good options include masking tape, shipping tape, and duct tape.

2. Boxes

moving companyYou’ll need to get a few different sized boxes to accommodate your belongings. When packing boxes, remember not to make them too heavy. Also, try to refrain from packing smaller items in large boxes. It will be harder to secure delicate items in this case, and you could risk a lot of damage if boxes are mishandled.

3. Packing Materials

Packing materials will help keep your belongings secure during transit. Packing peanuts are one possible option, as is packing foam, bubble wrap, and packing paper. Wrap paper around delicate items and carefully place them in a box of an appropriate size for the best results.

4. Dolly

You should also pick up a dolly or hand truck, which will help you easily and safely transport boxes. If you don’t own a hand truck, most moving companies will allow you to borrow them during your trip.

5. Markers for Labeling

Lastly, pick up some markers to label boxes once they arrive in your new home. The last thing you need when unpacking is confusion, and if boxes aren’t labeled, the process is bound to get trickier. Mark the top of boxes with a description of its contents, as well as the room it belongs in.
