Must-have equipment and tools for an easier move


  • Moving dolly


A simple dolly can save you much time and effort on your move. A moving dolly is an upright tool with two wheels, which can be used to stack and move a lot of boxes at the same time, avoiding the possibility of damaging breakables. Besides, due to its large flat base, you can easily move large and awkward items, such as furniture sets.


  • Moving blankets


Proper packing is impossible without high-quality moving blankets. You need them for wrapping most of the items that are to be transported.Once everything is done, use some packing tape to keep everything still. Moving blankets offer a great level of versatility,which makes them a perfect addition to the arsenal of essential equipment and tools for self-movers.


  • Ropes and straps


Moving straps and ropes are great tools for carrying extremely heavy and awkward items, such as a large TV, a bulky sofa, or anything else that requires more than one pair of hands. In addition, straps and ropes efficiently prevent back strains and other injuries and can be used to secure items to a moving dolly.


  • Labels


Labeling your boxes is one of the best ways to make the process of packing and unpacking a lot less complicated. Whether you buy a special label maker or you simply use markers or pans, you need some system for labeling. For instance, label the boxes that will go to the bedroom in one color and the boxes with kitchen appliances in another. This will save you time and help identify your items during unpacking.

  • Bubble wrap


Bubble wrap is a pliable transparent plastic material known as one of the best packing materials for transporting breakables. Simply wrap each fragile item in several layers of bubble wrap, paying particular attention to the most delicate parts.


  • Measuring tape


A tape measure is a comfortable measuring device usually made of metal, plastic, or cloth. It is irreplaceable when you need to measure your items and the distance between them for loading moving truck properly. In other words, it is a must-have for any toolbox.


  • Scissors


A pair of scissors is definitely one of the most frequently used tools when moving house, especially during the packing process when you constantly need to cut pieces of tape or cardboard.


  • Boxes


Durable moving boxes are pretty much the most important moving supplies. Get a variety of box sizes and types to make packing easier. For example, it is better to pack heavy items in small boxes, whereas large boxes are good for packing light, bulky items, such as pillows and blankets.

Whether you are moving across the town or to another state, the right choice of tools and equipment can make your move a total success!
