The right moving supplies can make or break your moving experience. With so much on your mind, it’s easy to not give much thought to what supplies you need until you are in the thick of your move.

3 Little-Known Moving Supplies that Make a Big Difference

Here are 3 often overlooked moving supplies that make a big difference for creating an easy, stress-free move:

  1. Mattress bags – Mattresses are often among the most expensive, and biggest, items in a move. Protecting them with a mattress bag is well worth it. Mattress bags not only protect your mattress from rips and tears, but also from dirt, dust, and moisture that might accompany a move. Mattress bags are an easy way to get peace of mind that you’ll have the comfort of your own bed in your new home.
  2. Furniture sliders – Furniture sliders come in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate any large furniture item or home appliance. These protective discs are used to protect both the floor and the item from damage. Just slide them under the legs or corners of your sofa, dresser, or washer and slide it across the floor on the slider discs. Furniture sliders offer protection and ease of movement for those larger belongings.
  3. Zip ties and twist ties – Ties are often moving supplies that people wish they would have utilized in their move. In our modern era of infinite cables, cords, and chargers, zip ties and twist ties can keep them all neatly arranged and tangle-free. The type of tie depends on your moving needs. Zip ties are more secure but must be cut off to open while twist ties easily twist open or closed.
