How To Prepare Your Moving Supplies

Having high quality moving supplies will make the entire relocation project easier and faster to complete. Check this guide on how to prepare your moving supplies and ask movers Los Angeles to come and provide help. Understand that only professional movers are able to perfectly design a moving plan suitable for your residence.

The first thing to do is to buy packing supplies, of course. And most of us want to buy them as cheap as possible. The good news is that there are a lot of places to buy packing supplies at affordable prices or even get them for free. For example, for boxes you can avoid costs by hitting up one of quite a few places handing out free boxes. Most retailers receive a lot of shipments, but your best bet is to contact furniture stores and ask if they can give some boxes, either for free or for a small amount of money.  If you do not want reusing boxes, hit the hardware stores.  The moving boxes at hardware stores and moving companies will cost you between $0.75 and $1.25 per box (or more for large or specialty boxes), and they’re designed to handle more weight and last longer in storage. Get many small and medium boxes, a few large boxes, and book boxes as needed for your library.

Have lots of newspaper at your disposal. Newspaper is both a economical and a practical way to wrap your sturdy items. Bubble wrap and packing peanuts are suitable for fragile items that may break easily.

Get colored sharpies for labeling boxes. We recommend you to use one color for each room. That way, you will save time when you’re unloading.

Use paper packing tape to label furniture.  Also, it is recommended to use furniture pads, but you can also use blankets instead.
