Boxes & Moving Supplies
before you start packing
Does the thought of having to pack up your belongings stress you out?
Is planning your move giving you a bad case of paralysis by analysis?
If you answered “Yes” to either of those questions, we’ve got you covered! Here are a few things to get you started on the process.
The first thing you’ll want to do is make a list of everything that you are planning to store along with a rough estimate of how big each of those items are. That way you won’t end up with tons of boxes that aren’t the correct size for the items you’re trying to pack.
Next, you’ll want to purchase good quality and sturdy packing boxes as well as a bunch of moving supplies that can help make your move easier. Some examples of these would be packing paper, cartons, bubble wrap, marker pens, and sealing tape. Basically, while these aren’t the types of items that most people immediately think of when they hear the word “moving”, your move becomes a lot more seamless when you have them.
In addition, if you’re planning to move a few living room chairs and pieces of furniture, you won’t want to forget about buying furniture covers. Your future self will thank you for remembering!
As a general rule of thumb, you’ll want to make a point of buying more moving boxes and packing supplies than you can see yourself using. Take it from us. It’s better to have more markers and bubble wrap than you need on the day of your move than to be scrambling for more supplies at the last minute.
So what happens if you purchase your items through us and you end up having extra moving supplies on hand? Here at XYZ Storage, we’ll refund your money for any items that are unused. Or put another way, we’re not just saving you time by offering you the moving supplies you need. We’re also saving you money.
And because we want your move to be as easy as possible, we also deliver moving supplies for the convenience of our customers.
