Having a successful move requires a lot of planning and supplies. Boxes, tape, handcarts, and furniture carts are vital for nearly any move. Many moving supplies can be purchased from major retailers but moving companies may offer a wider range of available supplies to customers.
Some moving companies sell moving kits that can be purchased and customized to fit your needs. Standard kits are sold that are suited to customers ranging from a student making a one-bedroom move up to a full household kit. Moving supplies can also be purchased separately. Having the right supplies makes a move much easier and efficient.
The most common moving supply that is needed is boxes. Some people can find the boxes they need from stores, friends, or family. However, it is often easier and necessary to purchase boxes designed for moving. Moving boxes come in a wide variety of sizes ranging from small boxes to extra large boxes to boxes suited to wardrobes.
Some companies offer discounts on supplies when a moving reservation is made at the time of purchase. Also, some moving companies offer to buy-back unused boxes to allay customer concerns about purchasing an excessive amount of boxes. It is always better to have too many boxes than not enough. They are the key to a successful move.
Other commonly needed moving supplies include tape, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, packing paper, labels, utility knife, bags, covers, pads, ropes, bungee cords, straps, hand truck, furniture dolly, carpet protection, gloves, tie downs, and locks. You definitely also want a tape gun dispenser to more efficiently pack and seal your boxes. Tape can be purchased that is specially designed for moving boxes. Two-way radios can also be useful in coordinating a move.
