Required Moving Supplies

It may seem obvious - but boxes will be necessary. You can buy these boxes from companies like Uboxes. You can also sometimes acquire boxes for free from local businesses. Many of these business dispose of received boxes and will be willing to give them to those who ask.

Scissors and Tape
Keep a few rolls of a packing tape and a few pairs of scissors around. You'll be surprised how quick you'll misplace them in all the chaos of moving.

Colored Markers
Labeling boxes properly is paramount in a quick and organized move, particularly if you're using professional movers like All My Sons Moving & Storage. Color-coding or at a minimum labeling can be very effective in getting boxes set down right where you need them.

Newspaper or Butcher Paper
Newspaper or butcher paper can be helpful in packing valuables. Newspaper print does have a tendency to rub off though - butcher paper is ideal.

Moving Blankets
Not necessary if you have professional movers coming - but in a DYI move blankets are essential to packing and carrying large but fragile items such as mirrors and picture frames. Use heavy blankets to wrap these items to prevent breakage.

Box Cutter
Keep one or two (they're easily misplaced) handy while packing or unpacking. Be sure to retract the cutter's blade when not in use to prevent injury. Keep the box cutter out of small your children's reach.

Good strong fiber work gloves can be helpful, especially when moving heavy furniture that is awkward to grip.

Bubble Wrap
Bubble wrap can be useful for packing fragile items such as dishes. Adding a layer between stacked dishes can help prevent breakage.
