Where do you get moving boxes?
Without the right tools, moving in Maryland simply isn’t an option. You’re going to need various items to help you get from your old home into your new one. Thankfully, we at Tristate Moving and Storage have created a helpful list of items that you will need along with some tips on how to procure them. We’re talking about boxes, tape, labels, and more in today’s blog. Let’s check it out.
Boxes are one of the most important things you need for when you move, but where do people even get those? You can go to an office supply store or a moving supplies store if you want to, but there are also ways to get boxes for free. Restaurants, grocery stores, and book stores usually have extra boxes that they don’t need. If you ask nicely, they are sure to help you out with some. Craigslist can also be a great place to find unwanted boxes.
Tape comes in many varieties, but how do you know which one is right for your moving boxes? Which one works best with fabric? Here’s the deal. The best tape for moving boxes is probably going to be shipping tape, which is brown and glossy looking. Duct tape is also a good choice, but it can be a hassle to cut through later. When dealing with fabric, you should invest in tape that sticks well to itself, like duct tape once again. Trying to stick the tape to the fabric itself might be a losing battle. In fact, try safety pins. You just need to make sure that they secure well.
When you label your boxes, bags, and other items for moving you should make sure that your labels are visible. Try to cover each side of the item so that you don’t have to worry about which direction you’re storing it at. Though it may be easiest to just write on the box with a marker, you may want to consider color coordination so that you can spot the differences between your boxes from far away without having to worry about the labels being legible.
