And another handy packing materials item is Stretchwrap: A special plastic covering that safely adheres to furniture and protects it from snags, tears, and dirt

You will also need paper for packing and padding those delicate items but be careful to use newspaper only for cushioning – never place newspaper aginst items as the ink will rub off. It can get embedded in fine china, so be wary!
