Packing up all of your things to move is stressful and time consuming. As with any job there are ways to make the task easier. Planning and organization are two things that you can’t find in a store. There are some items that you can find that will make your packing and moving much easier. Here are some items that you should make sure that you have if you are planning a move.
Yes, it is a lot of fun to sit around with bubble wrap and pop it, but it really does have a very specific and useful purpose. You want to use bubble wrap when packing anything fragile. There are some specific things you can get for plates and glasses, so bubble wrap is good for oddly shaped items.
There are two kinds of bubble wrap you can get: large bubbles and smaller ones. Make sure that for larger items you use the larger bubbles, and for smaller ones, the smaller. You want to make sure that you provide the right amount of cushioning to protect what you are moving.
This is just rolls of blank paper that you can use to wrap up anything from plates and cups to clothing and shoes. Yes, you can use newspaper for the same job. The issue is that newspaper has ink on it. Ink that isn’t very firmly attached to the paper which means you could be in danger of staining anything that you wrap up in newspaper.
Packing paper is also a great way to take up any extra space you have in your moving boxes once they are packed. Making sure that things don’t shift around in boxes is very important to ensure nothing gets broken in your move.
Shrink or Stretch Wrap
These large rolls of clear plastic look almost like industrial sized cling wrap. In essence that is what they are. They are great for large items that might be going into storage or that you want to protect from weather as you are moving.
You use stretch wrap by tightly wrapping it around the item that you wish to protect. It will keep out most moisture, dirt and dust away from what you have wrapped. It is best used on furniture, bedding or any other bulky items you might have.
Packing labels are essential for any move. When you are packing, you want to be sure not only to organize your boxes by what rooms they are packed in, but to label them so you know what the contents of each box is. This is where packing labels can help.
While you shouldn’t take the time to list everything that you have packed in the box, make sure to include a short list of the important things. That way if you are looking for something, you can find it.
