According to the United States Census Bureau, an estimated 43 million people or 17% of the total United States population, move each year. Garden of the Gods Self Storage would like to share some moving suggestions about moving supplies:
The first moving supply to consider is boxes. We suggest the following boxes for your needs:
- Small sized boxes are perfect for heavy, small and fragile items like small appliances, tools, books, dishes and collectibles.
- Medium sized boxes are ideal for smaller household items, toys, collectibles, small household appliances and clothes.
- Large sized boxes are great for large, lightweight items such as lamps, lampshades, stuffed animals, pillows, towels, linens, cookware, and clothing.
- Extra-large boxes are perfect for lightweight, bulky items such as comforters, large pillows, towels and seasonal clothing.
- Wardrobe boxes keep your clothes on their hangers. Move your shirts, suits, uniforms, coats and pants with ease.
- Dish boxes separate, isolate and protect dishware, collectibles, and seasonal decorations.
- Glass boxes feature cell dividers to separate, isolate and protect glassware, crystal, and stemware.
Tape You need tape to close the boxes!
Transparent acrylic poly tape is clear to the core and perfect for moving, storage, or covering/protecting labels.
Packing Paper, Padding, Peanuts, and Wrap
You need to protect your items that you pack in boxes and items that are too big to fit in boxes.
- Packing peanuts are very helpful for moving, storing or shipping fragile items.
- Clean, white, packing paper is perfect for wrapping dishes, glassware and small, delicate items, preventing scratches and for filling space in your boxes.
- Bubble wrap is recommended for fragile or heavy items such as electronic or stereo equipment, artwork, to prevent breaking or scratching.
