Benefits of Using Moving Supplies & Boxes

Moving to a new place can be exciting but also stressful, especially when it comes to packing and preparing all your belongings for transportation. The right packing supplies and boxes can make a huge difference in ensuring a successful move.

One of the main advantages of using moving supplies and boxes is the convenience they provide. With a wide variety of sizes available, you can easily find the appropriate fit for all types of belongings. These items are also practical and can help you maximize space in the moving truck.

Different types of boxes are available to suit different needs and make transportation safer and easier. Wardrobe boxes will keep your clothes wrinkle-free, while specialty boxes will accommodate problematic items such as flat-screen TVs and kitchen items.

Types of Moving Supplies & Boxes

Moving can be a stressful experience, but with the right moving supplies and boxes, the process can be made much easier and smoother. It’s essential to have the appropriate moving kits and boxes to ensure the safety and security of your belongings during transportation.

Fragile items require extra care and attention when being packed and moved to prevent damage. Some common fragile items found in most households include:

  • dishes
  • fine China
  • artwork
  • picture frames

To pack fragile items, specialized packing supplies are required. Bubble wrap is one of the most effective ways to protect fragile items during a move.

It provides a cushioned barrier that absorbs any impact during transit, preventing damage to delicate items. In addition to bubble wrap, dish barrels are also used to pack kitchenware items.

Paper pads may also provide an added layer of protection to prevent scratches and cracks.

Packing paper is another essential item for packing fragile items.

It is used to wrap breakable items and create a cushioned layer between different objects. 

Handling and packing fragile items with extra care and attention is essential to avoid damage during transit. To ensure safe transportation, it is essential to use high-quality packing supplies like:

  • bubble wrap
  • packing paper
  • paper pads

With these packing supplies, you can ensure a stress-free move and complete peace of mind that your fragile items will arrive at their destination safe and sound.


Packing Fragile Items

When preparing for a move, it is essential to properly handle and pack fragile items to ensure that they arrive at their destination in the same condition as when they were packed.

Start by wrapping each item in bubble wrap or cushion foam to provide a layer of protection. Make sure to wrap the item thoroughly and secure the wrapping with packing tape.

Utilize specialty boxes for items such as picture frames and mirrors. These boxes are specifically designed to provide extra protection for delicate items during transport. You can purchase these boxes at most moving supply stores or online.

Before placing delicate items in the box, line the base of the box with cushion foam to create a soft base for the delicate item.

Once you have lined the base of the box, wrap the item again with bubble wrap or cushion foam to provide an additional layer of protection.

Carefully place the wrapped item in the specialty box. Be sure to fill any remaining space in the box with packing paper to prevent the item from shifting during transport. This will further secure the item and protect it from damage.

Once the box is packed with delicate items, seal it with packing tape. Label the box as “fragile” to indicate to the movers that special care is required when transporting these items. [1]

Moving heavy items can be a challenging task, and it’s essential to use proper techniques and equipment to avoid injuries. Here are some efficient and safe methods for handling heavy items during a move.

Assess the weight of the item and determine the best way to move it. For extremely heavy items, a hand truck will be the most useful tool.

A hand truck, also known as a dolly, is a device with wheels and a base plate that makes it easier to transport heavy items.

Simply tilt the item onto the base plate of the hand truck, secure it with straps, and move it to the desired location.

For furniture,  furniture sliders can be picked up at Menards or ordered online.  They may be used to move furniture across a room or through a doorway. Furniture sliders are made of smooth material that allows the furniture to slide effortlessly without damaging the floor. Simply place the slider under each furniture leg and push it in the desired direction.

Pro Move Storage offers protective mattress covers to ensure that your mattress will stay in perfect condition during its relocation journey. Our covers are made from durable, heavy-duty plastic and feature reinforced double-locking seams to keep dust, dirt, and other debris out during storage or transport. The covers also provide an extra layer of protection against mold, mildew, moisture, and dust mites.

When moving heavy items it is also essential to protect your back when lifting heavy items. A back brace can be used to support your lower back, reducing the risk of injury.

Work gloves are also essential for providing a better grip when lifting heavy items, reducing the chance of dropping them.

When packing heavy items for a move, it’s important to use heavy-duty boxes. Heavy-duty boxes are specially designed to withstand the weight and pressure of bulky and heavy items. Pro Move Storage offers small, medium and large boxes.   

Be sure to note the weight capacity of the box you are using and do not exceed it. By packing too many heavy items in one box, you risk the box breaking, which can result in injury or damage to the item. A good rule of thumb is to pack heavier items in smaller boxes to distribute the weight evenly.

Moving bulky items can be a challenging task during a move. The sheer size and weight of items such as furniture can make them difficult to handle and transport safely. With the right strategy and materials, moving bulky items can be a breeze.

One of the best ways to handle bulky items is to disassemble them as much as possible. This can make them easier to carry and transport.

If your furniture is modular or can be disassembled, take apart any removable parts and pack them separately in appropriately sized boxes. This will also make it easier to reassemble the furniture in your new home.

When moving, it’s crucial to properly pack your belongings to ensure their safe arrival at your destination. That’s why it’s important to invest in specialized moving boxes for certain items.

Using the right box can make all the difference in avoiding damages and ensuring your items stay organized during transit.

One type of specialty box is the wardrobe box. This box is specifically designed for hanging clothing items during a move.

It comes with a metal bar allowing clothes to hang just as they would in a closet. This will help to avoid wrinkled and creased clothes when unpacking.

Another type of specialty box is the TV box for flat screen TVs. These boxes are made with sturdy materials that can withstand the weight and fragile nature of electronics. Pro Move provides TV boxes for televisions up to 70 inches.  

For specialty electronic equipment such as computers and printers, there are boxes available that provide extra protection to ensure they are safely transported. These boxes come in different sizes and are designed specifically for these electronic items.

When packing your belongings, it’s essential to choose the right size boxes for each item. Bulk-purchased uniform medium boxes, around 18 by 14 by 12 inches, are suitable for most items. [2]

Heavy items should go in small boxes, and lightweight items should go in larger boxes to save space and minimize the number of boxes needed.
