Pack and go
Before you actually move, it is smart to think about what you are going to take with you. Which things can you put in boxes and which things can't? For fragile items that fit in boxes, we recommend adding extra protection material, such as bubble wrap. To prevent damage, it is always good to wrap (even non-breakable) items in paper.
But what do you do with things you want to move that don't fit in boxes? Here, too, the necessary protection is certainly not an unnecessary luxury. And of course you also want to protect your home. In this blog we discuss all indispensable moving materials.
Which moving boxes?
To answer the question of which moving box is best to use, it is good to look at what you are going to pack. Ease of use also plays a role. For example, the autolock moving boxes whose bottom automatically locks itself in place are great if you have to fold a lot of boxes. What goes in the box also determines which moving box is best. For example, special glass boxes are available for glasses.
Good moving blankets and furniture covers
You also want to protect items that do not fit in a box against moisture and paint. It is best to use a furniture cover to protect chairs, sofas and mattresses. For furniture with corners, such as cabinets and white goods, it is better to use moving blankets. A moving blanket is also indispensable for packing your television. To be on the safe side, you can wrap the TV in protective film first.
Also protect your home well
When moving house, the necessary work is often also involved. Are you going to paint? Then the use of protective films is ideal to prevent paint stains on the floor or on furniture. You can also use protective film to provide the most vulnerable items with extra protection, for example in the form of bubble wrap. This way you can be sure that everything will arrive in one piece.
If the floor is already in it, you naturally want to prevent it from being damaged. Prevent scratches and use a suitable floor protector. Always make sure to use a professional floor protector. To prevent falls, it is very important that the protector stays in place.
The right moving materials make light work
A move involves quite a bit of lugging. Many hands make light work, but so does the right moving materials. A hand truck is ideal for moving white goods. But a furniture dolly is also your best friend during the move. It is not for no reason that a furniture dolly is also called a furniture roller. With a furniture dolly you can easily move the heavier items from A to B.
Buying moving equipment vs. rent
You can choose to rent (part of) the moving equipment. This is certainly worth it for larger matters such as a moving lift. You can choose to rent a moving van including moving blankets and other materials. But for most moving materials, the purchase is often worth it. For example, moving blankets and boxes always come in handy for storage in the garage.
