couple getting ready for movers moving supplies

As you prepare to start packing all your furniture, appliances and personal belongings to get ready for the Wheat Ridge movers to move you, you need to go to the home improvements store to get all the supplies you will need. But are you sure that you know exactly what kind of items you should buy?


Here are the basics you should consider:


  1. Protective Packaging

Many items in your home cannot simply go inside a box. They need extra protection from spillage, mechanical shocks and difficult driving conditions. Thus, you need to put the following items on your packaging supplies list: bubble wrap, packing foam, packing paper, and mattress bags.


  1. Primary Packaging

These are the boxes that you will need to put all your items in. Consider the overall volume of the items you own and split it down into manageable box sizes. You don’t want to have hundreds of small boxes, but you cannot expect anyone to lift a huge and very heavy box, either.


  1. Packing Accessories

Once the boxes are full, what do you do? You shut them tight, of course. For this, you will need packing tape and stretch wrap. Here is a recommendation: use stretch wrap generously on boxes carrying items that could be damaged by spillage, such as blankets, mattresses, pillows and clothes. Finally, consider adding tie down straps to your list, to make your boxes extra safe from damage.
