Even if your movers are doing the packing, it's a good idea to have some supplies of your own for those items you need to keep with you during the move, or for valuable things that you don't want to hand over to movers. Many truck rental companies offer specialty boxes for moving clothes, dishes, and files. Get your moving boxes early on, so that you can pack in an organized fashion, with good labels to help you get settled at your new place. You may need several types of additional padding -- blankets or foam for furniture, bubble wrap for dishes and breakable items, paper to fill in empty spaces. Along with your tape, buy a couple of box cutters to make unpacking easier.
