  • if your move is months away, start storing cardboard boxes now
  • the dollar store is the place to go if you want to save on packing supplies
  • get professional packing services

Don’t overbuy packing supplies just to be on the safe side

When it comes to packing, the most common mistake is to buy too many or not enough packing supplies. Take a good look at your household, and try to estimate how much packing supplies you may need. You don’t want to waste your money since moving from California to Las Vegas is not something you’ll be doing on the regular. The boxes, bubble wrap, Styrofoam peanuts that are left will just create clutter in your new home, and you likely won’t ever have the chance to use them. Although it’s a nuisance, is better to take several trips to the store and buy more packing supplies than to buy too much and lose the money.

Store boxes in advance before your move to Las Vegas

If you know you are moving to Las Vegas next year, you can start saving boxes now. Don’t throw away any boxes you could use for packing. Pay special attention to furniture boxes, home appliance packages, or any other items that come in large boxes. They will take up some space, so you will have to find a suitable place to store them until the time comes for you to start packing. If you have a garage or an attic, that is a great place to put such boxes away, but if not, a spare bedroom can also do. If none of these options are possible, you can rent a storage unit and pack some of the things you don’t use regularly right away. You will thank yourself (and us) once moving day approaches and you need to start packing.

The dollar store is your best friend if you want to save on packing supplies when moving to Las Vegas

You would be amazed by how many great packing supplies you can find at the dollar store. The boxes and bubble wrap might not be premium quality if you get them from the dollar store, but you only need them to last until you move anyway. Why waste money on more expensive supplies if a cheap box will do the same job just fine? You could even ask if they have extra boxes they don’t need or plan to recycle. They might be willing to give them to you for free, or at least for minimal compensation.

Get professional packing services

If packing is just too big a bite for you, we recommend getting professional packing services. Maybe you don’t want a full moving service, that is just fine. But many moving companies offer packing only services. You can have your belongings packed by professional movers at an affordable price. Why not take advantage of movers’ experience and knowledge? They will pack your belongings much faster than you ever could, and you will have the time to plan the rest of the moving process in the meanwhile. You will also not have to worry about getting packing supplies, and whether or not you’ve bought enough. Seasoned movers will take care of everything, including bringing all the packing supplies. If you want to spare yourself the stress of packing and worrying if your belongings will get damaged due to improper packing or handling, hire professional packers.
