Proper Packing Can Prevent Property Damage
Items Needed: Moving Boxes, Dish Packs, Bubble Wrap and Tape
Smaller Moving Boxes – Smaller boxes are fantastic for heavier and breakable items that must be packed on their own. This is to ensure ease of handling and shipment.
Medium Moving Boxes – A Medium box tends to be among the most-used moving box. These are ideal for smaller appliances and other household items. These medium sized boxes can often be more suitable with dish packing and glass packing inserts used to keep delicate glassware protected.
Larger Moving Boxes – Larger boxes are wonderful for lighter and medium weighted items such as lampshades, furniture pillows and clothes.
X-Large Moving Boxes – X-Large boxes are great for bulky and lightweight, softer goods like bed comforters, quilts, clothes and larger pillows.
Heavier Duty Boxes – Heavy duty boxes are stronger and reinforced with thick walls for heavier duty applications. These are excellent for packaging and protecting expensive electronics, book collections and appliances.
Large Wardrobe Boxes – A wardrobe box is constructed with a hanger bar so that you can transfer shirts, blouses and suits directly from the closet into the box without folding or wrinkling your clothes. These boxes come in several heights to additionally accommodate for longer items such as dresses and pants.
Electronics Boxes – Electronics boxes are specially sized to safely transport home entertainment consoles such as DVD players, stereo amplifiers and gaming systems.
Dish Pack Kit – Dish pack kits are compartmentalized to accommodate dinner plates, salad plates, saucers and bowls. Many kits include foam padding to enclose and isolate each piece to ensure safe transit.
Glass Pack Kit – Glass pack kits are compartmentalized to accommodate glassware, crystal and stemware. Many kits include foam padding to enclose and isolate each piece to ensure safe transit.
Unprinted News Wrap – Unprinted news wrap is an ideal and inexpensive way to protect fragile items during a move. Unprinted paper stock provides the added advantage of a clean, ink-free move.
Bubble Wrap – A large roll of bubble wrap goes a long way on moving day. Bubble wrap can be used to enclose fragile items and to insulate voids along the sides of boxes to ensure your items make it safely to their destination.
Permanent Markers – Permanent markers are absolutely necessary to communicate with your moving team. Marking boxes with inventory, warnings and special instructions is key to keeping things organized.
Box Tape Dispensers – When taping a large number of boxes, you’ll want a proper dispenser to speed the progress. A tape gun will lay seams straight down and help you keep your fingers clear of a sticky mess when cutting.
Box Tape Refills – High quality box tape will ensure your boxes stay closed and items stay taped during transit. Make sure you have plenty of it on-hand when packing the house.
Box Cutter – You’ll come to appreciate a sharp box cutter when it comes time to unload. Make sure you have plenty of refill blades on-hand too. Tape, adhesive and cardboard can dull your knife faster than you think.
