Don’t Forget These Moving Supplies!

Published on March 5th, 2018 by

Moving can be incredibly stressful. It is a huge inconvenience and finding the time to properly pack up your home is difficult with a busy lifestyle. Luckily, there are few easy things you can do to minimize the number of headaches you get from moving. One of the best ways to ensure minimal stress is to be prepared before the move! That means having all the supplies you might need during your packing and your move ready-to-go. Below are some of the supplies that often get lost in the shuffle.

Tool Kit

If you are planning on moving, you need to have a tool kit! You’d be surprised how many people forget to have a toolkit handy during their move! You might need to take some furniture apart to fit it through the door, or put together new furniture you’ve purchased for your new space! And don’t forget about hanging decorations on the walls! Hammers, nails, screwdrivers, screws, wrenches, and more are all essentials when moving!

Bubble Wrap

For all the fragile items in your home, you’ll want to get some bubble wrap ready for packing. You might think it’s an annoying expense, but trust us—you’ll be more annoyed to open a box and find delicate items destroyed. Be proactive, and get yourself some bubble wrap!


Markers, stickers, and labels all help make unpacking a breeze. Label and color code everything you pack. Not only will this help you when you’re organizing your new home, it will help you during the move to identify which boxes are heavy or which boxes contain fragile items.

Plastic Bags

You’ll be surprised at how great a pack of Ziplock baggies will help you during your move! Whether it’s keeping the screws and nuts from furniture from getting lost, or consolidating office supplies, sealable plastic bags are a must.

Cleaning Supplies

Get some cleaning supplies ready before the move. You’ll want spray, wipes, rags, soap, and bathroom cleaners on hand. Moving can be messy, and nobody wants to move into a dirty new home. Keep these items together in their own box that is easily accessible throughout the move.
