How to Choose Your Moving Boxes

If you are planning to move your home or office, one of the first tasks you will need to undertake is selecting and purchasing appropriate moving supplies. A commercial moving company in NYC can offer advice on the best boxes to suit your specific needs. There are a few simple guidelines which you can follow to ensure that you have the correct packing boxes for your move. Packing boxes come in several different sizes. It is important to make sure you use the right size box for the goods you are packing. In addition, there are a number of specialized packing boxes available, which you can use to pack fragile or awkwardly shaped items. You can purchase these boxes from a moving company, or obtain them secondhand. Furniture stores and offices can be good sources of moving boxes. However, if you do choose to use secondhand boxes, make sure they are still in good condition and will not break during your move. commercial-moving-boxes

Different Box Sizes

If you are moving, you will need a range of good quality moving boxes, in several different sizes. Use smaller boxes to pack heavier items, such as books. You can also pack videos, small metal tools, and small pieces of kitchen equipment. If you try to fill a large box with heavy items, it may break. You could also injure your back attempting to lift an overly heavy box. Medium-sized boxes can be used for slightly larger kitchen appliances, toiletries, bathroom supplies, clothing, and children’s toys. Use large boxes to pack bulky but light items, such as quilts, pillows, comforters, tablecloths, and drapes.

Specialty Boxes

There are a number of boxes available which are designed for packing specific categories of items. The wardrobe box contains a metal rail, to hang clothes. File boxes are the ideal way to transport home and office files. Dish boxes provide extra protection for fragile kitchenware.
