Packing Material Must-Haves

Packing Paper: Many people save and use their old newspapers for this job. Remember, that the ink on newsprint never thoroughly dries. So, the goods you wrap in newspapers are most likely going to be blackened and will require cleaning. For items you prefer to keep clean it would be best to buy some packing paper from your mover.

Moving Boxes: You'll need many moving boxes in assorted sizes. All boxes should be in good condition, and must have covers on them in order that they can be closed up and sealed.

You can purchase moving cartons from your mover, or you might start collecting cartons from your local grocery and liquor stores. All too often grocery store cartons have the tops removed, but if you have a talk with the store manager he would probably be willing to save you some cartons with the covers still intact. Liquor cartons are excellent packing cartons. They are sturdy, and contain dividers which make them ideal for packing glasses, goblets, vases, etc.

Packing Tape: The best tape for this purpose is plastic tape or duct tape. Your rolls of tape should be at least 1.5 to 2 inches wide.

Permanent Markers: This is for marking your packed boxes with such information as the contents of the box, "FRAGILE" "THIS SIDE UP", etc.
