Packing Supplies – Tips by Ellis Movers
You always need the right packing supplies for a successful move. To pack your belongings, you will require moving boxes and other essential moving supplies. Our goal is to ensure that your precious belongings arrive safely to your new home without a single mark or scratch.
Above and beyond transporting and moving our clients’ furniture, we provide professional moving boxes and supplies and help you plan and procure the necessary supplies.
The first step is to set out the list of items you need to move. Then sort out which items require specialized packing - such as fragile high value items. Awkward shapes, some clothing or larger pieces that are difficult to move, may require special care when packing. After you complete your initial moving inventory and identify all the special items, let us know and we will gladly provide you with the necessary packing supplies.
