Moving Supplies Ottawa

If moving day is approaching, then you know it is time to get your packing materials together. You’re probably wondering what you should use and how you should use it to help make your move easy, quick, and organized. Here are some tips to help make sure that your valuable cargo will arrive at your new destination unharmed and well organized to assist with unpacking as well. We have everything you need for moving supplies Ottawa at affordable prices, ready to make your move an easy one.

Cardboard Moving Boxes

There are two schools of thought when it comes to moving boxes. The first school of thought suggests that you find boxes wherever you can without paying for any of your moving boxes. This typically only works well if you are not moving far and are not concerned about the safety of your items. This is because the boxes that you will find for free will likely be of very low quality, damaged, mis-shaped, or missing elements such as handles and foldable flaps to keep your valuables covered while in the box.

The second school of thought on moving boxes encourages purchasing new moving boxes from a local moving and packing supply centre such as the one conveniently located in the Just Right Self Storage facility in Ottawa. There are many advantages to purchasing boxes. For instance, the moving boxes that you purchase will be uniform in size and strength, allowing your boxes to be stacked securely while inside of your moving truck or van. Additionally, you will have the option to purchase oversized large boxes for moving large quantities of items in one box, such as your wardrobe.

No matter what kind of boxes you intend to use for your move, you will always need more than what you think you will need so it is a good idea to set aside a couple moving boxes for your moving day to ensure you have some packing boxes left for the items you will pack last, such as your bedding, clothing and household cleaning supplies.

Bubble Wrap

A major priority and concern during any move is to make sure that you protect your fragile items. One of the biggest dangers to these items is the jostling and vibration caused during transport and packing. We have several moving and packing suppies that can protect your fragile items; the best option of course is bubble wrap. Typically, bubble wrap is available in large rolls although we do have options available if you do not need a significant amount of bubble wrap for your move. Don’t forget to purchase more than you think you will need as you don’t want to end up in a situation where you run short and are forced to leave some of your fragile goods unprotected.

Paper Wrapping

When moving people often use what is readily available to wrap their fragile items in such as plates and dishes. Usually it is newspaper that is easy to obtain, however newsprint can stain your items and is not as durable as paper wrapping sold in our local moving supply centre. When used in conjuction with bubble wrap you are able to fill empty spaces in your packing boxes and securely wrap your goods providing sufficient cushioning for transport. Make sure you do not forget to use bubble wrap to fill in the empty spaces or else you may break some items during transport due to inadequate packing. The goal during packing is to ensure that all of your items in your packing box are immobilized to offer the maximum protection against getting cracked or dinged when moving between locations.

Packing tape

Packing tape is an essential part of every successful move. When preparing your goods for your move, make sure that you have plenty of this vital item so that you can secure your packing and moving boxes to keep your goods protected. Packing tape rolls often look larger than they are so make sure you purchase a few extras just in case you run out in the middle of your packing. We also have moving and packing tape dispensers to make your packing job easier and efficient. If you have several friends helping you move, you may want to consider purchsing a dispenser for each person that will be assisting with the packing process to ensure that you speed up the process and make everyone’s life easier.

Other supplies

Our local moving and packing supply centre is not just conveniently located in downtown Ottawa, but is also fully stocked with everything you would ever need during your move. We recommend getting a clipboard and paper to create a hard-copy manifest of all of your moving boxes along with the items contained in each of your boxes. This helps when unpacking but also can help keep track of all of your items to make sure you do not lose any of your valuables.

It is also a good idea to purchase some coloured stickers, markers, or pens to create a packing and unpacking system, making your move more efficient and organized. You should choose one colour for each room so that you can easily identify which moving box is associated with each designated area when you arrive at your destination.

Remember: when moving, there are soo many things to think about and worry about that you will want to take advantage of our moving and packing supplies in order to keep your move organized, efficient, and worry-free.

If you plan ahead and purchase the materials in advance you will be able to sit back and relax knowing that your items are secure and well taken care of during transport. Good luck with your move and happy packing!
