Packing Tips

Couple - Moving Company

Useful Materials

We recommend purchasing new packing supplies from the moving company or another reliable source. Some items such as wardrobes and blankets may be rented and returned. Useful supplies include:

• Plastic Bags and Mattress Covers
• Labels and Markers
• Packing Paper and Tissue Paper for Delicate Items
• Packing Tape with Dispenser or Twine
• Corrugated Paper Rolls for Fragile Items

• Foam Popcorn
• Scissors or Box Cutter 
• Pen and Notebook to Keep Carton ID Log
• Boxes of Various Sizes and Specialty Types

Make a Note

If you choose to use your own moving boxes, check to make sure they are clean and strong enough to do the job. Don’t use old newspapers to wrap anything that may absorb ink. If you are using interstate movers, be sure to keep out supplies for writing and keeping track of phone calls, inventory, and any other important records.
