U-Pack Packing Tape
Professional Grade Packing Tape
When moving day rolls around, not only will you need professional boxes, but also strong packing tape to seal the top and bottom of those boxes. In fact, packing tape and a tape gun are the most important tools on moving day. Without them, you can’t pack a single box!
Types of Packing
Tape The U-Pack Box Store offers two types of packing tape:
Our clear packing tape is great for every use from packing furniture to sealing boxes. Our colored packing tape, called SmartMove tape, comes on color-coded rolls that work like moving labels to help you organize boxes as you pack.
How much packing tape do you need?
Our rolls of packing tape are 110 yards long. A medium moving box is 18” x 14” x 12”. Let’s say you use two strips of tape on the bottom and two on the top, for a total of 72” of tape on one box. That means you could tape 55 medium boxes with one roll of tape.
To make sense of that, a good rule of thumb is to order one roll of tape for 1-2 rooms of boxes.
How many tape guns do you need?
It’s a great idea to have one packing tape dispenser per person. When you’re packing it seems like you can never find the tape gun – and it’s just easier if each person has their own. So splurge and buy an extra tape gun; you won’t regret it. If your moving kit comes with one tape dispenser, consider adding another tape dispenser and extra packing tape rolls to have extra on hand.
