    The right preparation and supplies can help take the stress out of moving to a new home or apartment. Whether you move frequently or only every few years, assembling all the necessary equipment to move your belongings from one place to another can be time consuming. Rental trucks, ramps and dollies can smooth the moving process, and packing aids can make fitting all of your possessions into the available space easier. In both local and long distance moves, obtaining the right containers and equipment can reduce stress and speed up the process considerably. The types of things that will be packed will determine the materials that are needed in the storage and packing process. Boxes, crates or other containers of varying sizes are essential supplies in ensuring that your things are transported in an orderly way. Foam, bubble wrap and packing peanuts may be used to protect fragile items from damage when being loaded or unloaded from a truck, and tape should be used liberally to keep boxes closed. For special items, such as clothing, wardrobe boxes will enable it to arrive wrinkle and damage free. Necessary moving supplies are not confined to boxes and other storage solutions. For most, it will be necessary to rent a truck with a large capacity to reduce the number of trips between the old place and the new. Trucks can often be rented through storage facilities or through dedicated moving rental sites. In addition to offering these large pieces of equipment, many also offer rental dolly options and other pieces of equipment that will take the strain out of lifting heavy packages. Shipping stores and moving companies may offer guides for consumers on the materials that they will need as well as best practices in packing fragile items to safely travel long distances.
