However, this task of packaging all your properties you can do them yourself, is not so complicated and you will save a good amount of money. Here are some suggestions.

  • Boxes (either cardboard or plastic) and good sized plastic bags are essential for any move. You will also need newsprint, bubble wrap and foam rubber, tape, a marker and labels to mark boxes.
  • When you get the boxes choose the most solid and not too large, so you can easily load them. Reinforce the base of the boxes by crossing two bands of adhesive tape.
  • In large plastic bags you can store clothing and bedding. You can also bag stuffed figures and toys. Avoid sharp or heavy objects, they will probably go better in the boxes.
  • Another option to pack your clothes is your travel bags, it will be easier to carry, but make sure they are strong enough.
