Supplies Needed

Moving can be a daunting and stressful task, especially when it comes to packing and ensuring your items are safe during the move. It is important to have the necessary supplies to make the moving process easier and smoother. Here are some supplies you’ll need for a proper moving job.

1. Boxes - Sturdy boxes are essential for packing your belongings for a move. Make sure to get boxes of different sizes to accommodate various items. It's best to use new boxes as they're more reliable, but if you're looking to save some money, you can also inquire from supermarkets, big box stores, and wine stores for any spare boxes they have.

2. Tape - Packing tape is a must-have as it seals the boxes and secures the items inside. Avoid using duct tape as it doesn't stick well, and may damage your belongings. Instead, use a strong packing tape that offers a secure hold.

3. Bubble wrap - Fragile items need extra protection and bubble wrap is perfect for cushioning breakable items such as glassware, ceramics, and electronics during the move. Be sure to wrap items snugly and securely.

4. Labels & markers - Labeling each box with information about its contents and which room it belongs in can save you a lot of time and energy when unpacking. Use a permanent marker to avoid confusion.

5. Moving blankets - Moving blankets are designed to protect furniture and other delicate items during the move. These blankets come in different sizes, and are usually made of thick fabric or foam.

6. Hand trucks and dollies - Moving heavy furniture can be a challenging task. A hand truck or dolly can assist with moving large items, protecting floors, and reducing the risk of injury while moving heavy items.

7. Scissors or box cutters - Scissors and box cutters are essential for cutting tape, opening boxes, and unpacking your items at your new home.

By ensuring you have all the necessary supplies before a move, you can ensure that your belongings are properly packed and secure during the move. Proper planning and preparation will help make your move as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
