Apartment moving would not be complete without the use of the required number of boxes. Earlier I have simply visited my local stores to see if they have any boxes they could spare, before moving to my Chicago apartment. While still a worthwhile possibility, finding extra boxes behind your local supermarket is probably not the most reliable way to ensure that you have what you need for moving day. Some moving companies offer moving boxes for sale, solidly constructed boxes that are meant to move personal belongings and will hold up accordingly. If you are buying them make sure you are purchasing boxes of all sizes that you can fit smaller, fragile items in boxes that will protect them, as well as that can fit larger quantities of items in larger boxes. Also offer clothing boxes that will really come in handy when you are emptying your closest as you can simply transition your clothes right onto the bar of the wardrobe box.
Of course, along with boxes it is important to have the appropriate materials to pack your belongings correctly inside of the boxes. Arm yourself with plenty of bubble wrap to protect fragile items, as well as packing paper to stuff the empty spaces inside the boxes. Additionally, use packing tape to seal the boxes closed before labeling the boxes appropriately.
