packing supplies for your relocationIt can be difficult to know exactly what packing supplies you will need for your move in the Atlanta area, but making a list of the basic necessities, in addition to any other specialty supplies that you may need, is a great way to be prepared during the packing process. While most people know that they need boxes of various sizes, packing tape, and scissors, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to making sure your items are safely stowed for transportation.

A great place to start is by taking a thorough inventory of all the items you need to move. Do you have any specialty items? Anything that may need to be packed differently or require custom crating? Examples of items that may require special treatment during the packing process include artwork, antiques, pianos, and electronics. These items will likely require stretch wrap, tissue paper, packing popcorn, and triple-walled boxes, among other moving supplies.

Additional considerations for packing supplies in Atlanta include:

  • Be sure to take small specialty items like antique coins or valuable jewelry with you during the move. Putting them in boxes with larger items presents too much risk for loss or damage.
  • Always label boxes that contain specialty items. Buy or make labels that say “Fragile,” “Load with Care,” or “Load Last.”
  • Put small items or loose parts like hardware, door knobs, or wires in separate bags.
  • Confirm that valuables and specialty items are covered under your homeowner’s insurance policy and get a copy of the policy prior to your relocation.

Some other items you may want to have handy as you pack your belongings include markers for labeling, plenty of plastic bags, and rolls of corrugated paper for wrapping valuables. If you find yourself in a pinch on moving day and need some extra packing materials for fragile items, use bath towels, bed sheets, or pillowcases to wrap your items.
