Moving boxes

Sure, you could stop by the local supermarket and grab a truckload of discarded boxes for free. But chances are, this plan will cause you more of a headache than you’d anticipated. Selecting the proper size, type, and amount of boxes for your move will save you from time-consuming troubles in the long run and help your move to progress as smoothly and quickly as possible .

The boxes manufactured for purposes of transporting property during a move are of a different quality and grade than other types of boxes. They’re stronger and more durable, and can withstand heavier loads. These boxes are subjected to tests to ensure that they can withstand the kinds of weight they’ll be under when stacked with other heavy boxes on top of them. Additionally, boxes for fragile items such as glassware and appliances are frequently constructed with corrugated double walls to provide even greater strength. These boxes give you more security in ensuring that your property arrives at its destination in the same condition it was in on the day it was packed.

You might be amazed at the availability of specialized moving boxes designed to accommodate everything from mattresses and mirrors to dishes and lamps. Using these boxes will not only cut down time during the packing process, but will also make your unpacking much easier and more efficient.

The most common types of boxes used in moving include those specially designed for the transport of dishes and glasses. These boxes, available in a variety of sizes, include special inserts that keep glass items from being jostled or breaking during transport. These can be tailored to your needs by adding inserts especially made for plates, wine glasses, and other types of glassware.

Another box type that is very helpful during a move is the flat artwork or mirror box. These boxes are pre-printed with a warning that the contents are fragile, and are designed to protect your artwork and mirrors while taking up the least amount of space possible.

You can also purchase a special wardrobe box that allows you to keep your clothing hanging during transport. This prevents you from having to iron a box full of wrinkled clothing when you arrive at your destination and is a convenient and cost-efficient way to pack your clothes.

Lamp boxes are designed in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate floor lamps, desk lamps, and table lamps. These boxes are also extremely helpful when it comes to ensuring that your lamps arrive in perfect condition.

Mattress boxes are available in all the appropriate sizes, and protect your mattress and box springs from being damaged or getting dirty during transport.
