Sturdy purpose made packing boxes are crucial when packing your belongings for a move, regardless whether it is just down the road or inter State.
All goods you move are prone to damage whether it’s linen or glassware. Segregation of household items will save you time and money. For example, it’s essential to separate heavier items like books from fragile dish-ware otherwise you’ll face a costly damage bill.
Some people consider used liquor or supermarket boxes, often available at no cost, will suffice. These used boxes were designed for ‘one-trip’ applications, rely on their contents for structural and stacking strength, and therefore afford little or no protection for the stuff you will move. It is also unlikely you will get matching sizes, and that means your stuff is unlikely to fit and will pose a major issue when stacking odd box sizes inside a furniture van or at a storage facility.
It is understandable you want to spend as little as possible on moving boxes. There are online packing box and moving box Shops that sell purpose made moving boxes in a variety of sizes and at low prices. Shopping online is quick and often you can call if you need advice.
Many of these Shops have been around for years, are experienced trustworthy operators, and offer a variety of moving box sizes. Small and medium sizes for books or fragile items, larger sizes for bully stuff like pillows and blankets. Specialty sizes include port-a-robes for hanging clothes, lay-down linen boxes, mirror boxes, picture boxes, plasma screen boxes, wine boxes, and archive boxes.
Don’t forget packing material. Plain, clean, food-grade butchers’ paper is ideal to wrap dishes and glasses. Use bubble wrap for larger precious items and pictures.
Consider the money spent on packing boxes as insurance, and the cost of the box as an ‘insurance premium’. You will likely find it is a small price to pay for security and peace-of-mind.
