PRLog - Sep. 24, 2012 - SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- In a recent blog post Sacramento Movers explained that besides boxes, there are several other items that are useful when you’re packing up to move. The blog discusses everything from stretch wrap to markers so that you can get an idea of what items you will need before you begin packing.
Packing paper/plain newsprint – Packing paper should be used as cushioning around items that are to be boxed up. In some cases you could use newspaper or paper grocery bags that you may have on hand. Newspaper could be workable for wrapping some items such as tennis shoes or tools in the garage. Be careful what you wrap in newspaper because the ink on the page can easily smudge onto your fine china or lamp shades. For most of your household items, your best bet is to use plain packing paper which is clean and sanitary.
Permanent marker – This one is easy to find, since most of us already have a permanent marker laying around the house somewhere. A great idea would be to use multiple colors of markers or get one black marker and several different colors of paper to label your boxes. Using colors to identify what rooms boxes will be place in is great idea to make the move a quicker, easier process. Movers will see the colorful writing or colorful paper and immediately be able to associate it with a given room in the move-to house where the box should be placed. For example you could use green labels for the living room, orange for the kitchen, and blue for the bedroom. Also don’t forget to note the contents of the box so you will know where to begin unpacking. Mark boxes with the words "fragile" and "this side up" when appropriate.
