When you decide to move, packing is usually the last thing to do. This is the biggest fear for anyone moving. Movers can not rely on old or used boxes or supplies simply because it will hurt your valuables.
The choice to use old supplies will be beneficial in the short term but not in the long term. Many people who use old packaging pack all their valuables. When the time comes to move them, the cartons 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 fit. When you transport your valuables packaged from A to B, the objects move and rub against each other. With protective layers embedded in 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. Old boxes are likely to collapse, so your valuables are everywhere on the floor. Therefore, having sturdy crates is a necessity and will facilitate moving because of the ease of lifting robust boxes.
The boxes are not all suitable for one size. It is therefore useful to have a variety of boxes to facilitate your moving process. Boxes designed for certain jobs will ensure the safety of your items. Here are the variations you should look for:
- 1.5 cubic foot removal box: ideal for small heavy objects such as books, discs, cans, food jars, utensils, cutlery, shoes, etc.
- 4.5 cubic foot removal box: As the box expands, use it for lighter items such as pillows, bedding and stuffed animals
- Box of 6 cubic feet: to be used for light objects; if you pack heavy objects in this box, it will be difficult to move
