A wide array of items can be wrapped in bubble wraps, and they don’t leave any residue on your stuff as well.
MARKERS:

intact and tied orderly, thereby making their unpacking and installation much easier when you get to your new home.
ZIPLOC BAGS:
When moving, you will definitely need to have a lot of Ziploc bags in hand. Clear Ziploc bags are ideal for putting together items that are used (or at the very least, made) together. All you will have to do is have them put in one Ziploc bag, have the bag labeled and stored carefully away. They make it easier for you to find your things as well.
SHIPPING BOXES:
Regardless of whether you’re moving across the street or you’re moving to a far place (perhaps across state lines or to a different country) you will need to have your stuff transported. If that is the case, a moving box is definitely essential. You can easily organize your stuff, and your chances of losing anything are much reduced.
TAPE:
With tape, you can easily seal off moving boxes and ensure that your items are kept safely enclosed in these boxes.
