  • Please make a sink, hand soap, and paper towels available to your outside salesperson and moving crew for handwashing during their time within your home.
  • Please keep residence and office windows open throughout the moving process as this allows for greater airflow and less potential containment of germs.

What are the necessary moving and packing supplies?

Going into the process and just mentioning the phrase ‘moving and packing supplies,’ we know that you are most likely envisioning moving boxes. Don’t get us wrong – they absolutely are an essential packing material. They’re just not the only one. There is a whole list of packing supplies that all moving companies Boise will advise you to find for your upcoming relocation. What we here at Peasley Moving & Storage consider as essential packing supplies includes:

  • Moving boxes
  • Packing paper
  • Moving blankets
  • Padded wrapping paper
  • Packing tape
  • Packing peanuts
  • Permanent markers
  • Ziploc bags
  • Mattress bags
  • Trash bags

Trust us – a trash bag can be a great alternative if and when you run out of moving boxes. Besides, you have to admit that they are perfect for the relocation of your clothes. Perfect and cheap – a win-win situation as some might say.

Where to find the best moving and packing supplies

The answer will really depend on how much money you are willing to set aside for your supplies. After all, you might be willing to spend a considerable sum of money, but you just don’t have it at your disposal. But that’s no reason to despair. Your residential relocation can still be a successful project, even if you are on a budget.

Finding the necessary supplies with a hefty budget

While it can’t be denied that it is a bit easier to find packing and moving materials when you don’t have a limited budget, the difference is definitely not that big. In case you aren’t looking for a cost-effective solution, you can decide to visit websites such as Home Depot, Amazon, and Walmart. Sites such as these ones will give you a chance to order the quantity and the type of materials that you need.

What could be simpler than surfing the web and ordering the necessary packing supplies?

What’s so great about them is the fact that you will oftentimes be able to find cost-saving deals on packing supplies. Most importantly, you will get to completely avoid the hassle of visiting multiple stores before finding all that you need. You will be able to browse out of the comfort of your chair, place an order with a few simple clicks, and have the items delivered to you. It is as simple as it sounds.

Finding the necessary supplies when on limited funds

Relocation is a process that can be a really expensive one. With that thought in mind, and with not a lot of funds on their bank accounts, people have come up with many different ways to save money during their relocation. Considering the fact that moving and packing supplies can be expensive, one great way to save money is by finding budget-friendly supplies. The good news is that you won’t have to stray too far, because there are a couple of great ways to find cheap, if not completely free supplies.

  • Ask your loved ones for used materials

Do you have any friend or family member who has recently gone through a local relocation in Boise? Then there are good chances that they have some supplies left over from their move. There’s no telling how many supplies you will be able to gather this way, but it’s definitely a good start. And if this approach doesn’t work, you can always use the following way.

  • Visit dollar stores

Anytime you are pressed for money yet need to find some items, it’s always a great idea to visit dollar stores. These stores contain a plethora of different types of items that are sold for, you guessed it, a dollar. And even if you don’t manage to find sturdy moving boxes, you definitely will be able to find markers and tape. Perhaps your friends can lend you some boxes and you can buy the rest at dollar stores. That would be the perfect combination that will lead to a plethora of moving and packing supplies.

Use the power of social media for finding moving and packing supplies.

Of course, you can always use the Internet for posting and researching ads. Use social media to ask whether anyone is aware of the place where you can find the best moving and packing materials and we have no doubt you will be able to find what you are looking for.

You can always find professional help

In the end, if you have enough money and you want to avoid all the hassle, you can always turn to professionals for help. Many moving companies offer you a chance to find the moving and packing supplies just by contacting them. In case you can afford it, this really isn’t something you should pass up. It might cost extra money, but it will save you time and energy, so it will definitely be a worthy investment.
