Packaging materials for storing items

Moving home can be quite a challenge, especially when it comes to packing all of your items. The key is to think ahead and plan out what packaging materials you need. Packing tips are also available online and can be helpful to guide you through the process. It is important to protect any fragile and valuable items you will be putting away into storage to prevent any damage during the move.

Here is a list of the most important packaging materials you need for storing items.

Packing Paper

The first on the list of supplies is packing paper. Packing paper is very useful for packaging and storing items. Old newspapers may also prove to be effective. Packing paper helps prevent loose items from shifting and reduces the risk of items breaking when put into storage.

Bubble Wrap

The next on the list of packaging materials you need for storing items is bubble wrap. Chances are that you already have some lying around the house. Bubble wrap is great for protecting fragile items and it is easy to wrap awkward shaped items individually with layers of bubble wrap. Wrap your items with bubble wrap and put them in secured boxes so that they’re all ready to be stored!

Tape and Tape Dispensers

Rolls of tape and tape dispensers are next on the list. These are essentials that you must have on hand as you prepare your items to be stored in a unit. As you start to fill up boxes with items you must ensure that your boxes are sealed securely. It is a good idea to reinforce each box with packing tape and use strips of tape to wrap individual items.

Mattress Covers

It’s easy for stored mattresses or any other fabrics to become contaminated with dirt and moisture that may result in damage. Mattress covers are great for protecting against dust, moisture and moving damage and will help to extend the life of your expensive mattress. Mattress covers are usually available in Single, Double and King sizes.


Boxes are a staple item when it comes to moving and storing. They are very useful in sorting items in an organised fashion and can be labelled so you know whats packed where. There’s a wide array of boxes that you can choose from in various sizes and dimensions. Boxes made from corrugated cardboard are usually stronger than regular ones.
