Let’s face it: moving is expensive and stressful, and the last thing you want is to add damaged items into the mix. Packing paper is usually the way to go when purchasing packing products, plus there are other packing product alternatives that you might not have even been aware of. The professional movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage in Birmingham want you to have a stress-free move, so follow these packing tips to ensure the safety of your belongings.
Sweaters and Coats
Soft, yet bulky winter gear can provide cushion for your fragile items. Lining boxes or containers, or wrapping up your valuables with your sweats and coats can help give a layer of protection to your things that are placed inside the boxes.
Towels are ideal for separating items, like plates and other glassware. Doing this can help prevent chips or cracks. A thin, soft layer of towels in between fragile items can keep them from clinking together and breaking.
Blankets and Sheets
Professional movers will use moving blankets to wrap your furniture, electronics and large frames, so your own blankets and sheets make for the perfect packing product alternative. Blankets and sheets need to be packed anyways during a move, so why not use them the same way the professionals would? One of the best packing tips for packing your mattress is to put two fitted sheets around the mattress to protect it from dirt and dust while on the back of the moving truck.
