With spring upon us, you may be cleaning out the cobwebs–both figuratively and literally–and preparing for a move. If you are, be sure to create a checklist and get all of your essential moving supplies for your spring move in advance. Here are a few things that you should definitely be on your moving supply essentials list–
Of course, thinking about moving and transporting books, clothing, and personal items without boxes would be madness! And to ensure that boxes stay closed and don’t spill contents throughout the move, you’ll also need tape. While we sell boxes and tape at our location, we encourage you to search for ways to minimize your moving costs by procuring free boxes. In the months leading up to your move, save boxes from any deliveries that you receive, ask neighbors for box donations, and consider asking your local grocery store if they have any boxes they could spare. As a last resort, our team has you covered!
Even if your furniture isn’t worth a lot, you still want to make sure that it’s properly protected while in transit to prevent scratches and chips/dents. Furniture pads are a must. At Elite Truck Rental, we have furniture pads for rent that we are happy to offer! Another alternative is to wrap furniture in old blankets and use old towels or pillows to protect furniture from bumping against other pieces within a moving truck.
To help with lifting all of those boxes and items of furniture, you should consider a pallet jack or/and a dolly–each has its own benefits, so both might be nice. Additionally, if you rent our 16-foot truck or larger, the truck will also come equipped with a power lift-gate.
To ensure that everything stays secure while in transit and no pieces of furniture tip along the way, you’ll want to secure the load with E-track straps and rope. We have both available at our office!
At Elite Truck Rental, we have the right moving trucks, cargo vans, and all of the essential moving supplies for your spring move. Please reach out to us directly today to make your reservation, learn about our reservation guarantee, and purchase or rent supplies for your move. We look forward to working with you and can answer any questions you have!
