Needed Moving Supplies

With Discount Movers box delivery service, we include the packing supplies that are most typically needed. Here are some general instructions that will make the job easier:

  • Assemble all your packing materials before you start.
  • Tackle one room at a time.
  • Line boxes first – a towel or blanket When using a Rent A Box and unprinted newspaper for cardboard boxes.
  • Place heavier items on the bottom, lighter ones on top.
  • Place heavier items in smaller boxes.

Here’s a list of packing supplies that will come in handy:

  • Packing paper for delicate packing jobs.
  • Plastic bubble wrap for figurines and fragile items.
  • Gummed tape (1 1/2 to 2 inches wide) for sealing cartons and securing bubble wrap.
  • Markers and labels for identifying contents of cartons.
  • Scissors and/or sharp knife.

No matter what you’re packing, you should use crumpled packing paper in between each layer to assure a snug fit wherever there’s a gap. All boxes with “fragile” items should be marked accordingly.
