7 Moving Must-Haves for Your Next Big Move
You need boxes, for sure—but you also need the right boxes. JP's Moving Services states that Regular moving boxes come in specific sizes so that they’re easier to stack in moving trucks or while in storage. That reduces the likelihood you’ll over-pack, keeping them easier to carry around. They’re also available in dimensions specifically made for objects like televisions, tall lamps and furniture—and there’s even wardrobe boxes! JP's Moving Services has all of your moving needs! Give us a call to take the hassle out of moving!
Grab yourself a bunch of packing tape rolls—sealing up boxes takes at least two strips of tape, and you’re likely to go through it quickly. JP's Moving Services recommends using Standard carton sealing tape, it is all you’ll really need, but you can use reinforced types if your boxes are going to be a little on the heavier side. Give JP's Moving Services a call to handle all of your packing and unpacking needs when it comes to your next move!
JP's Moving Services recommends getting one for every person helping you pack, trust us on this. The amount of time and tape (and sanity!) saved by a tape dispenser is invaluable. Simply load up the dispenser with a roll of packing tape and go to town on those moving boxes. You’ll build them faster and seal them more securely than if you did it all by hand.
JP's Moving services states you should secure any drawers or doors your furniture pieces have by binding them in stretch wrap. It’ll prevent them from sliding out or swinging open during the big day, reducing hassle and potential damage. As an extra bonus, you’ll be able to keep clothing and soft, non-fragile items inside your furniture while moving. That means less time spent packing, and who doesn’t love that?
Everyone’s, and JP's Moving Services' favourite void to fill. Wrap it around any items that are fragile, or that you don’t want touching other objects. It’s the best way to keep all your possessions from getting damaged or marred. If you know you’ll be using a fair bit of bubble cushion, consider buying a larger roll to handle demand. But if you know you’ll be using less, or want to make things a little more convenient for you, think about buying bubble cushion in dispenser boxes.
Another recommendation from JP's Moving Services and good alternative to bubble cushion is kraft packing paper. It’s clean, smooth and separates objects from one another, making it especially good for stacking and packing away things like dishes, glasses and utensils. It doesn’t provide the same cushioning as bubble, however, so if you’re packing especially fragile items, use a mix of both packaging materials.
Box Cutters or Scissors for cutting packing tape, bubble cushion and packing paper. These will also come in handy when you are breaking down boxes once you have unpacked.
