Using the best packing supplies for a move

One of the most daunting aspects of moving house is to have to pack up all of your possessions.  The entire tone of a household move can be set by making sure that the packing is done properly.  Making use of the best packing supplies can make sure that relocation is less stressful and more relaxing than might otherwise be the case, and the good news is that there are a few tips to help you when it comes to making the right choices.

Boxes and cartons come in various different sizes and it is a matter of great importance to make sure that you pick the right size boxes for the items that you intend to place inside them.  Larger boxes should be packed with lighter items such as towels, linens and stuffed animals, while smaller boxes should be used for heavier items such as books in order to ensure that they are of manageable weight during transportation.

When it comes to packing paper, it is better to use plain white packing paper for wrapping and insulating possessions than newspapers, as the latter can see the newsprint rub off and end up staining items.

For items that are particularly fragile and valuable, bubble wrap should be used for the purpose of providing an extra degree of protection during relocation.  Bubble wrap is able to offer additional reassurance that precious possessions will arrive at your new home in one piece.
