The True Costs of DIY Packing to Knoxville

If you’re going to do a Do-It-Yourself packing plan for your move to Knoxville, you have to do it right. That means getting the best packing products, packing supplies and using the right techniques to avoid the big headaches that can occur while on the road.

Depending on the size of your house and how much stuff you have will determine how many boxes you’ll need. But you can’t use just ordinary boxes. You need to get your hands on high quality moving boxes to guarantee they can have other boxes stacked on them and that they survive the trip to your new house.

It doesn’t end there. You will need to purchase packing tape. Scotch tape and even duct tape won’t survive the move. Packing tape is designed to be more reliable than traditional tape and the purpose of securing boxes to the fullest.

You got your high-quality boxes, your packing tape, what’s next? Well, it’s not enough to throw some items in a box and hope for the best. There needs to be some cushioning in there for fragile objects. You’re going to have to pay a visit to the cushion king and get some packing peanuts so your moms favorite vase survives the bumpy ride home.

Make sure those gas tanks are filled. Depending on the type of car you have and the distance you’ll be traveling will determine how many times you’ll need to stop at the pump. Just don’t be surprised when you have to make multiple stops at the gas station during the long haul.
