Packing boxes, tape, wrap, bubble wrap, white paper- the list continues. Packing materials are expensive. Consider the following tips from AAA City on how to save on packing material costs.
Firstly, moving tools like packing calculators and moving box calculators are an asset when moving. The calculators can be found online and designed to help homeowners determine the volume of Packing Materials like boxes required for their Sydney move.
Removalists like AAA City offer the advantage of free moving materials like boxes, lowering moving cost. If your Removalist does not provide supplies, it’s time to rely on local sources for boxes. Cardboard boxes are supplies you can get for free from many local outlets. Contact your local liquor stores, grocery stores, warehouse stores, etc. Ask each if they have boxes you could pick up. If they don’t have boxes, ask if they can save boxes after receipt of their next inventory arrival. Liquor store boxes are suitable for boxes with dividers, providing more protection for packing glassware. You may also be able to pick up some free bubble wrap and packing paper.
Aside from boxes, there are household items that can be used as containers, wraps, etc.
Purchasing and saving in advance also helps to lower the moving cost. Once you have decided to relocate, begin to save around the house. Save the boxes from purchases, newspaper, etc. Visit the dollar store. The dollar store is a source for inexpensive packing supplies like tape and other materials.
As always, sort and toss. The less to pack, the fewer packing supplies you will need.
