Wardrobe Moving Boxes
Wardrobe boxes are designed to allow the packing of clothes while still on hangers. This box does not include hangers but will allow you to hang many garments using your own hangers.
Arrows on the sides of the box show the moving crew not to lay the box flat which may help prevent garments from wrinkling. Having a wardrobe box can make the task of cleaning out your closets MUCH easier because you do not need to fold clothes to pack them.
Dishpack Moving Boxes
Dishpack boxes feature extra-strong cardboard to secure glasses, dishes and other dinnerware while being moved.
Paper padding sheets or bubble wrap should be layered in-between dishes to prevent chipping.
Small Medium and Large Moving Boxes
Book Box = small box 16″ x 13″ x 13″
Medium Box = 18″ x 18″ x 16″
4.5 Box = large box 24″ x 18″ x 18″
These are versatile, all purpose moving boxes suitable for packing odds-and-ends, memorabilia, small appliances and more. For extra cushioning, wrapping items with paper pad or reusable sheets is advised.
25 lbs Packing Paper
The weight of this item is 25lbs and includes dozens of sheets of clean paper padding.
These paper sheets are perfect for laying in-between dishes stacked in dish-pack boxes or for wrapping fine china (because newsprint can stain). Packing paper sheets are recyclable.
Packing tape for sealing your moving boxes can be purchased by the roll or 6-pack.
Bottoms of boxes should all get at least two strips across for added strength when packing heavier items. Packing tape can also be used to hold shut paper pad wrapped around smaller items.
Bubble wrap is a versatile packing material that comes in a large roll of 100 feet.
Not only is bubble wrap reusable, it provides superior cushioning for delicate items. Even safer packing tip for bubble wrap is to secure your wrapped items closed using some packing tape before placing in your moving boxes.
Popping bubble wrap is often thought of as a fun stress reliever after moving into your new home. Or if you move a lot, your bubble wrap can be saved and re-used for years to come.
Office Moving Totes
Please note that reusable plastic totes are available for most office moves.
Extra-large Moving Boxes
Extra Large Box
Useful for packing larger items such as bedding, decorative pillows, child’s room stuffed animals, children’s toys and much more.
Please keep in mind packing an extra large box too tightly may cause the bottom to give way. Use more than one strip of tape at the bottom to help prevent this from being an issue.
Mirror /Art / Frame Box
This box is adjustable to various sizes starting at 40″x40″ which make it a great choice for placing wrapped framed artwork or large photo frames.
