Sensible “Splurges” You Should Consider on Moving Day



Moving boxes and containers

Moving boxes and container help to make the process of moving easier by ensuring that your belongings are well organized, optimizing the use of available space in the moving truck, and protect your things from damage during transit. Therefore, when you are preparing for a move, moving boxes and containers should be at the top of your “to buy” list. Ensure that you have bought enough boxes and containers, and choose a variety of sizes so that they can accommodate all of your stuff.

Packing materials and supplies

Packing is one of the most critical tasks of moving, and it can be the difference between a shutterstock_1066293839smooth or a hectic move. To ensure that you have a smooth move, you should buy all the packing materials and supplies you need to pack your items safely and efficiently. These include shipping tape (for sealing boxes and containers), masking tape (for labeling), stickers, scissors and cutters, marker pens (for labeling), bubble wrap, packing paper, newsprint, ropes, bubble roll, etc. With these items, packing your things will be smooth and fast, and so will be the unpacking process.

Moving blankets, pads, and covers 

During a move, your items can be damaged easily due to careless packing, overlooked safety tips, a bit of overconfidence on the movers, or just through bad luck. You also have to deal with your furniture being scratched and being exposed to dust that can take a lot of time to clean. However, with protective equipment such as moving blankets, pads, and covers, you can reduce the risk of your items being damaged during the move, thus guaranteeing you the much-needed peace of mind.

Moving equipment

Lifting furniture and other bulky items is a tedious task you have to endure when moving, more so if you are moving the furniture up or down the stairs. However, with the right moving equipment, you can quickly load and unload your furniture and other bulky items in your home. For this reason, you should invest in moving equipment such as moving dollies, ramps, pallet jack, and hoisting straps.


When lifting bulky items, your hands bear the brunt of the task. As such, you are likely to sustain injuries such as scrapes, scratches, and sore or inflamed patches. Fortunately, with the help of a good pair of gloves, you can protect your hands and enjoy a smoother packing, loading, unloading, and unpacking process.

A toolkit

On the moving day, you will need to take apart beds, tables, and other items for easy packing and unpacking. For this reason, you should invest in an excellent toolkit that will give you an easy time when disassembling and assembling your belongings.

Final Words

Moving is without a doubt one of the most stressful experiences you will have to endure. The experience can be very frustrating, especially if you do not have the right tools with you. This is the reason why you should invest in the above tools and equipment, as they can guarantee you a smoother and hassle-free moving experience. Some of the items are a bit expensive, which can be off-putting, especially because moving is also expensive. However, their benefits outweigh the costs involved, and thus you should invest in them regardless of their prices.
