Moving Essentials

Officeworks offers a wide range of moving supplies to help you pack and secure your belongings for your move.

Moving boxes

Moving boxes are essential for packing, storing and transporting your belongings. Look for cardboard boxes that are sturdy, and use packing tape to reinforce the bottom of the boxes. Use small moving boxes for heavy or fragile items such as books and pictures, so they are easier to lift and carry. Use large boxes for light or bulky items such as quilts, pillows and clothing.

Bubble wrap

Protect fragile items by wrapping them in bubble wrap. You can also line boxes with it to provide extra cushioning during the move. Bubble wrap comes in different sized bubbles: 10mm and 20mm. The smaller bubbles provide light cushioning and are ideal for wrapping smaller items or placing in between items for protection. The larger bubbles are suitable for protecting larger and heavier items.

Packaging tape and tape dispensers

Use packaging or packing tape to seal the bottom of your moving boxes to strengthen them, and tape them up once you’ve completed your packing. A tape dispenser will make taping boxes a lot easier and quicker.

Packaging labels

These labels are ideal for boxes requiring care or attention. If you’re using a moving service, packaging labels will help movers easily identify which boxes are heavy, contain fragile items, need to be a certain way up and more.

Permanent markers

Write on each moving box to identify its contents, for example kitchenware, files, stationery, clothes, books and more. You can also label which room or level the box should go to, to make it easy for movers to know where to place each box at your new destination. Use a permanent marker for clear labelling.

Box cutters

A box cutter will help you speed up unpacking by cutting through tape in no time. You can also use it to break down your boxes for recycling once you’re done with them.
