Moving Supplies You Shouldn't Do Without
Having the right moving supplies on hand will keep your belongings safe
and organized during your move:
Boxes: Make sure your moving boxes are in good condition; dirty or deteriorating
boxes can damage your belongings or break in transit.
Packing Tape: High-quality packing tape will ensure your boxes will stay securely shut,
whether they're going into storage or being transported immediately
to your new home.
Inventory System: Number each box in permanent marker and keep a list of the items packed
in each box to avoid losing items and make unpacking much simpler.
Packing Material: Packing and moving fragile items calls for packing material to add cushioning
and prevent breakage. You can purchase or reuse packing materials such
as styrofoam, bubble wrap, and newsprint; alternatively, consider using
extra clothing as padding to cut down on the number of boxes you need to move.
Dos and Don'ts for an Easier Move
Whether you're moving near or far, following a few simple guidelines

- Do pack everything well in advance of moving day. Start packing as soon
as possible to give yourself plenty of time without feeling rushed or
stressed. If you need extra storage space for completed boxes, consider
renting a storage unit to keep your home more organized during the packing process.
- Don't throw items into boxes helter-skelter. Try to pack one room at
a time and group like items into the same box. Organize before your move,
rather than after it, to avoid moving items you don't need and cluttering
your new home.
- Do downsize as you pack; every time you fill a box, make sure it's
only with items you both need and want. If you haven't used something
in one to two years, now is a great time to throw it away or donate it.
- Don't ignore the benefits of hiring a moving and storage company to
help you out. Check out local moving services and explore all your options
