Custom moving pads are becoming popular among professional moving companies. Pro-movers like having the option to brand their blankets by ordering their own company colors and printing their name on them. However, there are several things to consider before placing a custom order:
1.) Design the blanket in your head
How big should it be? Should it be heavy or light? What color do you want? Which fabric is best? What about the binding? Start thinking about some of these questions so you know what you want when it's time to order. Also try perusing the nine blanket styles already offered at US Cargo Control to get some ideas.
2.) Do you want your name on the blanket? Your company name can be placed on the quilted part of the pad or on the binding. The binding is the fabric lining the outside edge of the blanket. Think about what color the text should be. Contrasting colors often look the sharpest.
If you don't want your name on the blanket itself, think about printing it on the tag with your company information. You'll also need to consider what you want the tag to say.
3.) How many pads do you need?
Custom moving pads typically require a minimum order of 150 dozen.
4.) When do you need the moving blankets?
Lead time runs around 90 days.
5.) Questions? Ready to order?
