What is a move? It’s not just finding a new home, it's not just finding a
, and it's not just paying loads of
money to get everything done. There’s also loads and loads of packing to worry
about. Minutes, hours, days, weeks; packing takes different amounts of time for
different types of people with different amounts of things. And packing can be
considered the most important part of moving. Packing your stuff in
as opposed to plastic bags can be the
difference between a broken set of dishes and an unscathed one.
Let’s take a look at the different types of packing materials you can use
These boxes are not your average boxes. Don’t just use some boxes you had left
over from your microwave and toaster oven. Moving boxes are tough and strong
and can really keep your things safe and intact. With other boxes, you’re
dealing with cheaper, unreliable materials that will not be able to bear the
burden of your move.
Peanuts and Bubble Wrap
As a kid you loved playing with these fun but useful packing materials. Peanuts
are those little figure eight pieces of Styrofoam. They’re used to cushion the
items inside your moving boxes. Your stuff will be kept safe, and they’re great
fun to play with once your move is over. The other fun piece of packing
material is bubble wrap which is also used for insulation. Again, great fun to
play with at the end of your move.
This includes tape, scissors, rope, twine etc basically anything and everything
you’ll need to help keep your moving boxes closed and secured.
Now that you know what you need, you're ready to pack!
