Moving Boxes

One way to ensure that you do not have to re-pack your items more than once is by packing them in high quality moving boxes the first time around. It is easy to assume that any old cardboard moving boxes will do for a move. However, before you put a stack of books into an older box, take the time to plan a bit. Moving is enough work that you do not want to deal with breakage, spills, or delays that could have been avoided.

Brand New Cardboard

One option is to buy new cardboard moving boxes. Real moving boxes are made of heavy duty cardboard that is durable and can withstand the weight and frequent movement that they will experience. Professional Moving and Storage will provide you with the boxes and special crates that you will need to make your move safe and successful.

Used Moving Boxes Have Their Uses

You may also use a cardboard box that you have used to store things or that arrived when you ordered something online. Just double check that it has not been wet and that it is not damaged. You will want to make sure that the tape is secure. Add more tape to make sure that the bottom will not give way and, of course, you will want to place only lightweight items into older boxes.

No matter what, the way you pack is going to be critical to the performance of your moving boxes. Give yourself enough time to pack in balanced weights and so that you can comfortably lift each box. It is tempting to fill a moving box full of books, but it will make it more difficult for one person to carry it.
