One of the most frustrating parts of moving is not having the proper packing supplies. Nothing is more stressful than having to completely stop the moving process to run to the store and pick up a packing item. With more and more moving and shipping companies moving into the Ecommerce world, movers’ lives have been made easy with a variety of packing supplies available at just the click of a mouse button. With that being said, it can be a bit overwhelming for movers to know exactly what they need and what they don’t need for a move. Boxes, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, tape and tape guns are all considered “must haves” for a move.
In today’s market there are boxes for any and every item that needs to be moved or shipped. One of people’s most cherished possessions is their television. For this reason, TV moving boxes are quite convenient and popular. Flat screen TV moving boxes and TV moving box kits are available to ensure a television is moved or shipped in a proper box. Guitar, mattress, art work, traditional, and heavy duty boxes are also available. Boxes usually come in small, medium, large, and x-large types and prices are usually based on size and whether or not the box has been previously used.
Bubble wrap is used to pack heavy or fragile items such as art work, glass, and electronics. Bubble wrap is sold in rolls of varying length, width, and height and is usually cheap.
Packing peanuts function in the same manner as bubble wrap, but they are packed loosely into the box rather than being wrapped around an item.
Tape and Tape Guns
Poly, filament, paper, and masking tapes are all available in a variety of widths, lengths, and strengths. Movers should base tape selection on personal preference and box size. Printed tapes offer the luxury of taping and labeling boxes in one step.
Tape guns and dispensers take the ripping and sticky work out of taping boxes. They provide a perfect tear that ensures a box is properly packed and secure.
In conclusion, purchasing packing supplies need not be hard. Packing and shipping companies want to help their customers. Usually, a mover can purchase all packing supplies through one company, making the process convenient and cheap. More importantly, no need to ever lose sleep over broken items.
