4 Essential Supplies for Your Upcoming Move

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Are you one of the many Americans planning a move this year? According to Ruby Home, a luxury real estate resource, people between the ages of 20-29 are most likely to move. Whether you have a local or cross-country move, you need the right supplies beforehand. Here are the supplies you need for your move.

1. Moving Boxes

From clothing to books to dishes, the items you pack will need boxes of various sizes to make the trip safely. When you have books, you may need special book boxes that can handle their weight. If you have dresses and suits that shouldn't be wrinkled, you may also want to invest in wardrobe boxes.

2. Insulation Material

You'll be moving your items from one location to the other. Therefore, things may also move around inside them unless you have proper insulation. Without proper insulation, you may open up your boxes only to reveal a bunch of broken dishes, glasses, and electronics. Therefore, you'll need packing peanuts or bubble tape. Your moving company may also recommend using packing blankets.

3. Packing Tape

As you insulate and fill each box with your precious items, you need to ensure your boxes are tightly sealed. Needless to say, scotch tape won't do the trick. Have several rolls of strong packing tape that can hold boxes together. Failure to use the correct tape could result in your box opening prematurely during transit.

4. Box Labels

Don't underestimate the importance of a solid labeling system during your move. Color-coded labels are helpful when you have different people in your household. A big colored sticker can represent each person, so movers know where to place things in a new location. You could also have labels where you can write names or designated rooms. For example, you want to ensure that all your kitchen boxes are labeled “Kitchen.” Do the same for your garage, bathroom, and individual bedrooms. Otherwise, when it's time to unload your items, it can be a confusing process.

Moving can be a time-consuming process. That's why you must have the right supplies ahead of time and plan things out.
