Expert Packing Tips from Our Edmonton Movers

Once you’ve booked ALTA MOVING to handle the heavy lifting on moving day, it’s important to start thinking about the packing process. You’ll need to stock up on plastic wrap, garbage bags, and a ton of other packing materials, not to mention figuring out how many moving boxes or Frogboxes you’ll need.

However, when you hire ALTA MOVING, you won’t need to do any of the heavy lifting, even when it comes to supplies. Our moving team arrives with EVERYTHING we need to pack virtually any item. If you run into problems while packing, leave it to us!

Here are some handy packing tips for moving to make life easier before the main event:

  • Take an inventory of your belongings by room to determine what can easily fit in small boxes vs. bulkier items that need to be wrapped and packed separately.
  • Check out our packing supplies and choose the best moving package for your needs. Some of our most-recommended supplies include:

    • Wardrobe Boxes
    • Dollies
    • Packing Paper
    • Bubble Wrap
    • Mattress Covers
    • Tape Dispensers
    • Box Knives
    • Markers
    • Moving Blankets
  • Take extra care of fragile items, wrapping them with plenty of packing paper. Don’t forget to cushion any empty gaps around these items with extra packing material to keep them steady.
  • Ditch the cardboard boxes and opt for reusable moving boxes to reduce waste. Our partners at Frogbox offer durable plastic boxes that will keep your belongings organized through the packing phase and secure on the moving truck. Rent boxes and packing supplies from Frogbox to receive premium pricing and partner discounts on your seamless moving experience with us. Each box comes sanitized and delivered directly to your doorstep!

And finally, here’s a bonus pro packing tip – don’t forget to pack a bag of essentials prior to moving day. This way, you don’t have to sift through a bunch of boxes to find the necessities once you’re in your new space. Include everything you’ll need for 2-3 days so you don’t feel rushed to unpack.
