Moving supplies are the basics of packing. You need quality moving materials, durable, fresh new boxes and not the old hand-me-downs from the grocery store, and of different sizes.

The delicates need to be custom fitted in their own boxes, crates, and cartons and if need be, moving blankets and/or bubble wrap. Anything that carries delicate and fragile items should be obviously labeled.

Question: What is the best way for moving long distance with pets?
