Looking for packaging materials while moving homes? There are many different materials you might see and wonder if you need them or not. Many of these items, like bubble wrap, come in handy when you want to secure your things. They also prevent fragile items from breaking.
While you might be tempted to just throw everything in a box, you want to make sure your items make it safely to your new home when being shipped. The only way to do this is to get the correct packaging.
This packaging material is by far the most used item. It protects your fragile items including family heirlooms, dishes, cups, and other glass items. It’s also one of the most inexpensive materials to buy. You should wrap all your breakable items in bubble wrap.
Some people also choose to line the boxes with bubble wrap so that the items are not pressed against cardboard. The best thing about bubble wrap is that you can buy it in many different size rolls so you never have too much or too little.
Quality tape is important. Make sure to get one that is labeled as heavy-duty so that your boxes don’t pop open while in transit. You can buy tape in bulk if you have many boxes to save costs.
When taping boxes, make sure to put all the seams together. You should also add an extra layer or two to secure it.
While you can just write directly on the box, using labels is easier. You can stick it on the box and then write all the contents. This allows you to know exactly what is in the box so you will not forget.
Make sure to also get some permanent markers so the writing does not wear off as the boxes rub against each other when you stack them.
Thick blankets are perfect for laying down inside the moving truck. The extra padding and softness will protect your items. You can also drape them around furniture or wrap them around big glass items like mirrors.
Moving blankets are more effective than packing paper or wrapping paper.
