What are Different Moving Boxes for?

Standard moving boxes come in several fixed uniform sizes. Using uniformly sized moving boxes will save you time and money by making your move go smoother. They are easier to stack inside the truck too, which prevents breakage of your valuable items inside the boxes.

Here is our guide to help you better determine the appropriate box size and type for various items. Following this guide will help properly protect your belongings, as well as save you time and money by making the loading, stacking and unloading process much more efficient.

The ultimate rule of thumb to remember is – the heavier the item, the smaller the box!
