Great Tips for Moving Box Options

Are you a new do-it-yourself residential mover? We know packing can be overwhelming. With so many items to go through and sort out, it is a miracle every time a family is able to move! At Winnipeg Moving we have been helping families move since 1975, and we wanted to offer you great tips for moving box options. It may seem like a simple thing to throw everything in a box and move, but in order for you to move safely and efficiently you will need to use the right boxes for the right items. Call us today for any question about the right moving boxes for any item.

Small Size Boxes

Smaller boxes are great for items that weigh a lot, making heavier items easy to move. For example, books or canned goods go great in small boxes. When packed properly this can be great for fragile items too.

Medium Size Boxes

As the most versatile of moving boxes, medium boxes can accommodate most of your household items. Make sure to pay attention to the weight limits on each box, and that you do not have any fragile items mixed in with your assortment of household items.

Large Moving Boxes

Your bulky items belong in a large cardboard moving box. Items like blankets, comforters, pillows, and stuffed animals work great in these boxes. You do not want a large box to be heavy when it is time to move.

Wardrobe Boxes

A wardrobe box comes with a metal rod that makes transporting your clothes from closet to closet easy and simple. If you do not hang your everyday clothes this option is great for formal wear or anything you do not want to wrinkle.

Dish Boxes

A dish box is very handy because they often come with dividers that allow you to carefully pack small and fragile items together. We recommend packing your dishes and breakables in these kinds of boxes.

Mirror Boxes

Mirrors are great decorations in any home, make sure to protect your mirrors properly with the correct size mirror box. These boxes often come with handles making them easier to carry. Make sure to mark these boxes as fragile, so your long-distance moving team knows to be extra careful. Mattress Boxes It is always recommended to wrap your mattress or box spring for a move. You do not want these items getting dirty. If you are willing to spend extra money on your move, mattress boxes are a fantastic option. Make sure whichever option you choose has moving handles, it makes these items so much easier to carry.
