Packing Supplies - A Storage Guide

The Jack Rabbit Team | Oct 15, 2018

Moving and storage is hardly possible without the right packing supplies. Boxes and tape are essential to packing, but what else should you use to properly pack and protect your belongings? Here’s a look at all the supplies you will need, which can be found at any Jack Rabbit Storage location.

MOVING BOXES AND TAPE

Of course, boxes and tape are the first things you need to get started. Jack Rabbit offers three standard sizes: small, medium, and large. The boxes are double-walled for extra strength and have handle cut-outs for easy lifting and carrying. Small and medium boxes are best for smaller, heavier objects, such as books and small appliances. Large boxes should be used for lighter items, such as linens and pillows. Wardrobe boxes are perfect for easy clothes packing. It comes with a metal bar to hang your clothes right from the closet.

BUBBLE WRAP AND PACKING PAPER

Need to protect that fragile keepsake? Bubble wrap can do the trick! Jack Rabbit has two sizes of bubble wrap, small and large. Both have perforated sections that easily tear to wrap around your items. Packing paper can also help your items stay safe, and moreover serves as box fill to keep the items from shifting during the move.

DISH AND GLASS KITS

Jack Rabbit Storage also offers dish and glass kits. These kits come with cardboard sections that fit inside a small box. They also provide foam pockets, so all you have to do is slip your plates, bowls, or glassware inside the pocket and place in the box. The glass kit holds 6-12 glasses, and the dish kit holds up to 6 place settings.

MOVING LABELS AND MARKERS

Efficient packing is not complete without labelling the boxes. Jack Rabbit has moving labels that simply peel off and stick to the boxes, and markers for the traditionalists who like to handwrite their labels for that personal touch.

MATTRESS COVERS

If you are moving and/or storing a mattress, keeping the mattress clean is essential. These plastic covers fit right over your mattress and help keep dust and dirt away. Jack Rabbit has covers for king, queen, and single mattresses.

MOVING PADS AND SHRINK WRAP

Moving pads offer padded protection for wooden and glass furniture. Drape the pads over the furniture and use the shrink wrap to keep it tightly in place. Shrink wrap can also be used to wrap couches and chairs to preserve them and keep cushions together during the move.
