Regardless of whether you are moving across town, across the country or simply going off to college, preparation is the key to a smooth transition. One important element, and there are many, is to determine an accurate estimate of the cost to move. This answer to this takes into account where the new location is, are you doing the move yourself or hiring a moving company and who will be responsible for the packing? To make this determination you need to determine what Corpus Christie moving supplies you will need.

The first step in determining what packing supplies you will need is to make a reasonably accurate inventory of what has to be moved. Measure all the major components; the beds, refrigerator, washing machine, etc. Once you have completed your inventory you will be in a position to determine what you need to protect it during the move.

 * Boxes: Boxes are the number one item; you will have to purchase different size boxes for your belongings. When you purchase your Corpus Christie moving supplies consider getting the boxes from a reputable moving company, their boxes are manufactured to withstand having weight placed on them without collapsing, the same thing cannot be said for cartons from the supermarket. Use small boxes to pack dense items such as books, medium size boxes are ideal for domestic electronics and glassware that has been properly wrapped for protection. As large boxes can be unwieldy try to use them for light items such as clothing and bedding. A moving company can provide specialty boxes for wardrobes, mirrors, etc.

 * Tape: To eliminate any dust or foreign material from getting in the packed boxes and to deter any pilferage tape all boxes shut. Use wide packing tape on both the top and bottom; consider doubling the tape on the bottom for added strength.

 * Wrapping materials: Newsprint is fine as long as it is not old newspapers, the ink will definitely come off and transfer to your possessions. The best material is bubble wrap; use this material to protect all fragile items such as pictures, mirrors, glassware, tableware and anything that might be easily scratched.

To be complete your Corpus Christie moving supplies should include heavy black markers. By marking your boxes once they have been packed it is much easier when you arrive at your new home, you know where the boxes go and what they contain.
