Moving Tips #2 – Have Plenty of Supplies
Don’t make us say this twice;
”you will need LOTS of boxes”
Probably more boxes than you ever imagined, and having enough boxes will make your life easier! (If you buy your boxes from us here at your local Austin moving company keep in mind that we offer free delivery! No hauling or schlepping â€“ we do the heavy lifting for you.)
Have about 10 boxes set aside to use for last minute items on moving day, such as bedding, clothing, and cleaning supplies. You will need strong packing tape to close up the boxes securely (and please donâ€™t forget to tape the bottoms of the boxes, too!).
Use unprinted newsprint (newspaper can stain your items) or packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap and cushion your fragile household goods. Use paper to fill in any spaces left in your boxes so they do not crush when stacked in the moving truck. Again, you will need lots more supplies than you think, so get some extras so the packing can go smoothly. Simply return any unused supplies after the truck is packed (we don’t charge you for what you don’t use!).
If you are moving out of state remember that everything must be packed in boxes â€“ unlike a local Austin move, nothing can go loose. If you are unsure how to pack something just ask us; weâ€™ve packed it all before and can offer a lot of useful packing tips and tricks!
