Movers.com appreciates that those planning a DIY move may not be familiar with all the packing materials available on the market, or may not know which supplies are a must-have when packing up an apartment. As such, in “How Different Types of Packing Materials Help You Move”, the moving experts cover all packing essentials – cardboard boxes, protective materials, and labeling supplies.
“There are several materials that you need to keep your goods safe and secure during the moving process,” says Movers.com. “It is important to be familiar with these items and to make sure that you have enough of these materials for your move.”
Movers.com starts with the number one essential: cardboard boxes. Along with standard boxes ranging from small to extra-large, the guide recommends item-specific boxes such as wardrobe, kitchen, and picture boxes. For instance, a kitchen box will have compartments for glassware, china, and silverware, which protect these fragile items from damage during transport.
However, boxes alone will not suffice, which is why protective materials, such as bubble wrap and newspaper, are commonly used and recommended by professional movers. Bubble wrap can prevent scratches and dents on furniture while newspaper can be used for wrapping fragile items like glassware.
Once the boxes are packed, Movers.com recommends labeling everything clearly with either packing labels or a marker, and using packing tape to reinforce the bottom of boxes containing heavy items.
For those who decide to hire a professional moving company to handle the entire moving process, or a portion of it, Movers.com can also provide up to seven no-cost estimates from top local movers. In business since 1994, Movers.com is the first website to offer no-cost moving estimates and currently has a network of over 700 moving companies.
