Proper Packing Supplies
The importance of well constructed boxes and moving supplies are often underestimated. Upon first thought, many people think "Why should I buy boxes when I get can get boxes for free at the store?" There are many reasons:
- Frequently the box tops have been cut off - making it impossible to close properly and impossible to stack safely for travel and/or storage
- The boxes may have been structurely damaged by their original contents
- Produce boxes can serve as a host for insects and insect larvae - later infesting your new residence
Two Men and a Truck offers the following packing suggestions:
- To safely move your possessions, all boxes must be able to be closed and sealed with packing tape. This not only protects your belongings, but makes it easier to stack.
- While newsprint provides cushion, it may also leave ink on your precious belongings. Packing paper is the best choice for safeguarding your breakables.
- Duct tape while very useful for most purposes, is a poor substitute for packing tape as it does not adhere to corrugated cardboard boxes
- Take advantage of the many custom boxes available such as wardrobe boxes and dishpacks to easily and safely move your possessions.
