You’ve made a decision to move–congratulations! Before you get the keys to your new place, though, you’ll need to figure out how to most efficiently pack up the old. At Elite Truck Rental, we have a number of different moving supplies and equipment that can help. If you’re unsure of exactly what you’ll need, check out our ultimate moving supply list to get you started–
Of course, you already know that you’ll need plenty of boxes in order to complete your move. While you can buy boxes–and we sell them at our office–we recommend trying to collect some boxes for free in order to save a little cash. Most grocery stores and other food and retail shops have plenty of boxes that they throw away on a daily basis–just ask if you can take some!
While some items can simply fill a box without any padding–such as your stacks of books–others will need a little cushioning in order to prevent damage during your move. You have a few different options for this. Something easy that you can do is to use old rages or t-shirts to wrap fragile items, such as your dishes. You can also purchase different cushioning options, such as furniture pads, foam wrap sheets, and bubble wrap. Just like with boxes, our team usually recommends the lowest-cost option.
In order to make sure your boxes are securely closed and that contents won’t spill in transit, you’ll need some high-quality packing tape. And just as important as tape are labels. The last thing that you want to have to worry about is getting to your new location and having no idea in which box your items are located. Labels can mitigate this crisis.
There will be boxes and furniture items that are simply too heavy for you to lift, no matter how strong you are. A hand truck or a dolly can alleviate this complication, and make moving multiple boxes at one or heavy furniture or appliances a lot easier. At Elite Truck Rental, we provide dollies for rent–just ask!
Tools are probably something that wouldn’t immediately come to mind when thinking about moving, but a toolset can come in handy should you need to dismantle or take apart a piece of furniture (such as a bed frame) in order to more easily move it.
At Elite Truck Rental, we not only rent moving trucks but also rent and sell a number of different moving supplies in order to help you with your move. To learn more about the supplies and equipment we have available, call us today or send us a message at your convenience.
