moving_suppliesMoving in LA can be the thrill of the lifetime and once you have arrived here, you will be amazed by the immensity and complexity of this city. But before earning the reward, you must work hard and carefully plan the relocation. Nobody wants to end up with broken or missing items and their arrival. Pick the best packing and wrapping materials in order to confer maximum protection to all your belongings.  Listen on what a Los Angeles moving company has to say about these 5 ways to find cheap moving materials.

1)     Check if you still have the original boxes for some items.  This is more than cheap, it is free. Almost all objects bought online or on stores come with an original box in which they were shipped by the manufacturer. This box was designed for the exact sizes of that specific item. Plus, for most electronic devices it also contains cushioning and packing materials like Styrofoam, bubble wrap or polystyrene foam.

2)     Repurpose old towels and clothes. If you no longer need them, cut them and use them as packing materials. However, they are not recommended to be used for fragile items.

3)     Find cheap boxes.  You can visit local stores and ask if they have an excess of cardboard boxes. Ask them if they can give you and negotiate the price. If you are lucky enough, some stores will even give them freely.

4)     Search for online products. If you do not have a local moving supplies store, use the internet to find companies. Look for specific items and compare prices offered by different stores.

5)     Ask the hired moving company to provide missing materials. Some companies can sell you their own moving supplies. If you hire a mover, you should ask if it sells moving supplies.
