Don't Forget These 4 Supplies to Help With Your Move

by Israel Villanueva 06/15/2022

To make any process more efficient, it’s important to have the right tools. For moving, whether it’s across the country or across the street, the right tools and supplies can make an enormous difference. Here are some tips for what you should have to make your move efficient and easy.


There are two different types of dolly you can use to make your move a bit more efficient. Utility dollies are the most common and often included in rental vehicles for an extra charge. These let you stack multiple boxes or smaller heavy items to move in a single trip. Furniture dollies have a larger base and four wheels for moving large furniture pieces more easily. One or both tools will help make your move quicker and safer.

Moving Pad or Blankets

Moving blankets are a great way to keep your furniture and belongings clean when loading into dusty moving vehicles. Wrapping furnishings in a blanket will save them from dirt and spills. Moving pads or furniture pads help you slide heavy items by reducing the friction between them and the surface. Wrap any fragile furnishings like those with a lot of glass or other breakable materials to minimize the chance of damage during the move.

Straps & Bungees

Moving straps are an incredibly useful item that often get left off of supply lists. Straps have many uses including keeping large items secure on a dolly or in a vehicle. They can also help distribute the weight of extremely large or heavy items like couches and mattresses in order to make them simpler and safer to maneuver. Bungee cords are a good option if you want extra tension to hold items in place.

Packing Tape

Packing tape may seem like an obvious choice, but the key is to have enough packing tape for the entire job. There are few things more frustrating than running out of tape halfway through a packing project. Stock up on an extra roll or two so you know you won’t get stuck without it at a crucial point. Packing tape can help with more than just building and sealing boxes, too. Use a piece of tape to attach screws, casters or other small items to larger pieces so they don’t get lost in the move.

Moving can be overwhelming, but with the right tools and supplies you can make the process easier and more efficient.

Over 27 years ago I visited Naples for the first time from my home state of New York. I will never forget walking on the white powdery sands of the beautiful beach and witnessing the glorious sunsets crowning its warm shimmering waters. Suffice it to say, I never left. Being captivated by its raw natural beauty and drawn by the small town charm garnished by beautiful art, local architecture and awesome cuisine, I never got tired of staying. I met my wife in Naples. With the hospitality of its residents, my wife and I decided to raise our children here. I have seen Naples and Southwest Florida grow and I know it very well and I love it. So, all this inspired me to be a realtor here. You will benefit from the professionalism, responsiveness and quality that I bring. Also, I am fluent in Spanish. Se habla Español. For sellers and buyers alike, my hope is that I can help you enjoy a piece of this paradise and that you can realize your real estate vision!
