When you decide to move, packing your bags is usually the last thing you should do. This is the biggest fear for anyone who moves. Movers can’t rely on old or used boxes or supplies just because it will harm your valuables.
Choosing to use old supplies will benefit you in the short term but not in the long term. Many people who use old packaging pack all their valuables. When it’s time to move them, the boxes collapse or break. When a box closes, you will have more work and your valuables may be damaged.
Here are three reasons why you should choose quality supplies:
Quality boxes provide the protection your valuables need to stay in top shape. When you transport your packed valuables from A to B, the items move and rub against each other. With protective layers built into quality boxes, plates, porcelain and other fragile products are not scratched or damaged.
As we said in the introduction. With old supplies, you can feel how fragile they are, and old boxes can feel very vicarious when they come to pick them up. Antique boxes are prone to collapse, causing your valuables to end up all over the floor. Therefore, having sturdy crates is a necessity and will make it easier to move due to the ease of lifting sturdy boxes.
Not all boxes fit one size. So it helps to have a variety of boxes that make your moving process easier. Boxes designed for certain jobs will ensure the safety of your items. Here are the variations you should look for:
- 1.5 cubic foot moving box: ideal for small heavy items such as books, records, cans, food jars, utensils, cutlery, shoes, etc.
- 4.5 cubic foot moving box: As the box grows, use it for lighter items such as pillows, bedding, and stuffed animals
- 6 cubic foot box: to be used for light objects; If you pack heavy items in this box, it will be difficult to move around.
