Cardboard boxes are traditional for storing items when you move, but it doesn`t mean they are the only good option. Actually, there are plenty of alternatives, cheap and easy to find around you.
Use storage boxes made from other materials
There are storage boxes made from plastic or metal and they are great to store different kind of objects during their transportation to a new location. Some of them even have wheels, which makes them portable and easier to move around.
Some of these sacks are very thick and come in various sizes. They are ideal for transporting clothes, towels, bedding etc.
You do not have to bother taking the things out of the drawers. Just leave them where they are and secure them in place.
Suitcases, bags, rucksacks, carrier bags and anything similar things you have at home are also great to store things during your home move.
Your washing machine tank
You can sneak in many non-breakable items.
If you are preoccupied on eco-friendly packing materials, here are some ideas:
- Use blankets, towels, clothing and bedding for filling gaps and to prevent other items from moving inside the storage boxes. You can also use them as alternatives to bubble wrap.
- Use pillows and cushions to protect fragile items. Alternatively, you can use packets of rice or pasta, for the same reasons. Find more tips from a local Arvada moving company today.
