Five Types of Packing Supplies You Need for Your Next Move

packing supplies
When you’re looking for packing supplies for moving, the choices can be overwhelming. If it has been a while since you last moved, you may be wondering what types of packing materials you need to organize your move. Whether you are staying in the local El Cajon, Poway or Mission Valley area or making a long-distance move, there are a few essentials you will want to pick up:
  1. Boxes -  This one is obvious; of course you will need boxes. The important thing is to choose the right variety of boxes for your needs, including specialty boxes for hanging clothes, dishes and so on. Remember that small, lightweight boxes are often easier to manage than large, heavy ones.
  2. Tape -  Do not skimp on the material that will be holding your packages together. The last thing you need is for your boxes to start bursting at the seams because the tape you have chosen is inadequate. Be sure to select an adhesive specifically labeled for traveling or shipping, and never trust masking tape to stay in place.
  3. Protective film - For some items, wrapping them tightly in plastic makes more sense than trying to fit them into a box. This large plastic wrap usually comes on a roll and is invaluable for things like keeping table legs together, and it can also be used to help stabilize stacks of boxes.
  4. Cushioning materials - Bouncing around in the back of a moving truck can be hard on your possessions. Protect them from a potentially rocky ride by using plenty of cushioning materials, including newsprint, foam and packing peanuts.
  5. Labels - Imagine arriving at your new home with all your belongings and having no idea where to find your essential items. A well-planned labeling system can save the day by enabling you to quickly identify the contents of each box. Color-coded labels have the added advantage of being easily organized by room.
