How to Choose a Moving Blanket

With several varieties, fabrics and weights of moving blankets, choosing the right one can be a more complex process than you might think.

We’ve created a short video to highlight the key qualities of each.  Below you’ll also find a link to each style so you can easily find them on the USCargoControl.com moving supplies page. All moving blankets are available in single packs, 4-packs and dozen bundles; moving pads (also known as moving skins) are available in 6-packs and 24-packs.

A final tip: moving blankets can also be extremely useful even after a move! Check out “Moving blankets: not just for moving anymore” for ideas on other uses for a moving blanket.
