A critical step in the moving to-do list is preparing packing supplies

Boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, and other common tools are top of mind for most movers. Several important factors can be overlooked though, like the cost of these moving supplies, the amount necessary, and where to find the items. Movers, Not Shakers! offers helpful tips for movers as they prepare for this important and time-consuming task.

Essential moving supplies

Moving can be tough, but the supplies you need don’t have to add stress to the process. Check out the most important supplies you’ll need below:

Each of these tools is helpful in the packing process. When it is time to transport the items in and out of buildings, it is important to have:

The majority of movers will also need some sort of vehicle to transport items from their old home to the new home. Moving trucks or vans of different sizes are available to rent as belongings are moved around town. Movers, Not Shakers! uses moving trucks powered by biodiesel. This saves you the hassle and stress of renting and operating a moving truck on the busy streets of New York City, and you can feel good about our green trucks helping the environment!

Typical Cost Of Moving Supplies

To gauge the cost of moving supplies, try determining how many boxes, rolls of packing tape, protective materials, etc., will be necessary. When our professional movers manage a project, they estimate that a one-bedroom apartment will take roughly 15 to 20 boxes. Then they consider large furniture like beds or couches, fragile pieces like televisions and plates, and any other item that will require extra care. This amount of moving boxes, furniture protection, and other supplies typically costs $150 to $300 at a retail store. Retailers will often offer delivery services to those who need help getting this equipment to their homes. The cost of deliveries depends on the seller. Movers can save themselves stress and costs by using Movers Not Shakers reusable moving bins!

Packing and Moving Considerations

The packing process will also be unique to each mover and the equipment they decide to buy. There are several important things to remember when choosing moving equipment, especially cardboard boxes. These moving boxes will likely need extra packing tape to stay shut, they typically aren’t strong enough to be stacked too high, and they can easily lose their shape if overfilled. All of this can be avoided by using reusable moving bins provided by green moving companies like Movers Not Shakers. When packing, do not make the box too heavy. Be sure the boxes for moving can be easily lifted onto hand trucks or dollies, so they don’t break or cause injuries. Be creative when packing up the boxes! Instead of buying extra bubble wrap, try covering fragile items in blankets, towels, or any other soft materials. This saves space, waste, and money.

In addition to help on moving day, Movers Not Shakers will offer packing and unpacking services, storage, and even donation help.
