Stock Up on These Must-Have Packing and Moving Supplies

Moving can be tough, but getting the supplies you need a move doesn’t have to be. Our storage facility has the packing supplies that you’re looking for.
Everyone knows that a move can be a hassle, but it’s much easier when you have the right tools for the job. Here at Elite Self Storage we don’t just help our customers when they need a self storage unit. We can also help you with your moving needs by offering the packing supplies that you require. Whether you’re moving some things into a storage unit or moving to a brand new home with all of your things, we’re ready to assist you. Here are some of the must-have moving supplies that you can find at our storage facility.

Boxes of Different Sizes

When it comes to packing supplies, one size doesn’t necessarily fit all. You’ll have to have boxes of different sizes in order to get the job done. Large boxes are great for moving a lot of lighter things, but load them up with heavy stuff and they’ll rip open. Smaller boxes are ideal for items like that. There are also special boxes, like wardrobe boxes, that are designed for specific items.

Protective Packaging

Of course, you can’t just throw all of your stuff in boxes and hope for the best. You need protective packaging that can ensure that all of your things get to their destination in top shape. That means stocking up on packing paper, bubble wrap, and foam peanuts that can protect your items while they’re in transit. Spending a little extra cash on these packing supplies can save you money in the long run.

Furniture and Mattress Covers

If you want to make sure that your furniture and mattresses don’t pick up any dirt and grime during the move, it’s wise to cover them up. It doesn’t take long and you won’t have to worry about cleaning your furniture once you get it to your new home or storage unit.

Dish and Glass Packing Kits

For your most fragile items, we recommend kits that are specifically designed to pack them up for transport. We offer dish and glass packing kits that make it easy to stow away some of your most valued items. With these packing supplies you’ll make it to your new place with all of your kitchen essentials intact.

Stretch Wrap

Plastic stretch wrap can help you secure many kinds of furniture. If you’re worried about cabinet doors or drawers opening in transit, stretch wrap will put that fear to rest. Best of all, it won’t leave behind any kind of nasty residue that might damage your furniture.

Box Cutter and Scissors

Of course, once you’ve taped up your boxes you’re going to need some way of opening them back up once they reach their destinations. Scissors, or better yet one of the box cutters we sell at our facility, will make it easy to open up everything and get unpacked. Before you know it, everything will be in its rightful place in your new home.
