You wouldn’t undertake a home improvement project without the right tools, so why try moving homes without the proper supplies? With the right knowledge, equipment and some professional help, you can move in less time and with less stress. Contact your local moving company for additional moving supplies, and add these essential items to your own moving checklist.
- A Notebook and Pencil: This can be a three-ring binder with paper added, a composition book, or just an ordinary legal pad, but you will need something in which to plan, organize and keep records. You can supplement your organization with a smartphone app, and use these resources to organize your schedule, record which items are in which boxes, and jot down notes of things you need to do.
- Packing Boxes: It may seem obvious, but you’re unlikely to undertake a successful move simply by tossing unpacked items haphazardly in your car’s trunk. Reusing old boxes may not provide adequate support and strength for your belongings and can often break during transport. Order moving boxes from your moving company; they come in a variety of sizes and are designed to withstand the lifting, transporting and bumping that comes with a move.
- High Quality Packing Tape: Just as quality moving boxes help to reinforce the safety of what’s inside, packing or moving tape should be used to seal your boxes. This is the glue that holds your possessions securely inside their temporary homes. Having tightly sealed boxes ensures that nothing will rip mid-transport or tear through weak tape.
- Permanent Markers: Use permanent markers to label the contents of every box, lest you find yourself in your new home going through every box just to find your spatula. Labeling and organization are the keys to a successful, stress-free move. To make things easier and even more organized, label each box with a number and use your handy notebook to make a record of the exact contents of each numbered box.
