Packing supplies checklist for 4 bedroom home
These must-have packing supplies will help you have a smooth move.
Ready to start packing? Here's what you'll need to keep your possessions protected:
1. 40 Medium boxes
In these boxes you can store all your heavy items so that it is easy for you or your mover to carry. If you go for a large box to move heavy items, you'll probably have to try too hard to lift it and when you do, you won't be able to see what's in front of you.
2. 30 Large boxes
You can store bulky yet light items in these large boxes. They are suitable for items which take maximum space to store but are light in nature such as blanket, linen, or pillows.
3. 1 Tape dispenser
A tape dispenser is essential if you don’t want to spend the whole night just packing the boxes with tape. If you don't get a tape dispenser you will probably spend a lot more time packing.
4. 4 Tape rolls
Tape rolls are essential to pack the cardboard boxes so that things do not fall out of the moving truck.
5. Wrapping paper (15 kg = 600 sheets)
These sheets are acid and ink free, unlike newspapers. They are also strong in comparison with other papers or newspapers. Wrapping paper also holds the shape of the objects without the need for taping.
6. 3 Porta-robes
Portable wardrobes are very important when moving your house, especially when you have to be at work the next day. Porta-robes help you keep your clothes wrinkle free.
7. Bubble wrap (15 metre)
Bubble wrap is a common material that is used in packing many things for shipment. The purpose of bubble wrap is to protect the object from external pressures and handling and also the surfaces of the object from getting abraded.
8. 1 Marker pen
It is important for you to know in which boxes you have packed items from your bedroom and in which ones you have packed your living room’s items. You should also write the content of the boxes on top of it.
