If you have allot of boxes and fewer people, a Dolly would be great to have. Not only would it take the load off your helpers, but it would also cut down on time. If you have more furniture then boxes, a Furniture Dolly may suit you better then an upright one.
Gloves may come in handy if you need a little extra grip. Scissors/Blades can be of use when dealing with difficult tape. A Toolbox would prove useful too when certain furniture needs taken apart or doors need to come off.
If your transporting the items yourself, Bungee Cords & Straps are recommended. A supply of old Blankets, Towels, or Traps can provide protection for your furniture as well.
