Moving requires a lot of different elements coming together in an efficient and timely manner. One of the smaller but crucial details of moving is the materials necessary to move your valuables. Certain factors that should be considered before acquiring materials include the length of time the move will require, the kinds of materials being moved and stored, and how much access to the materials is required.
Smaller packing boxes are ideal for smaller, heavier items. The most common items this would include are DVD’s, CD’s, dishware, tools, books, and glassware. These items tend to not take up too much room, but are too heavy for larger containers. To be the most efficient mover possible, consider storing small boxes inside of larger ones for maximum use of space.
Medium sized boxes are fantastic for the most common household items including, kitchenware, bedroom furniture, and living room items.
Larger boxes are great for items that are awkwardly shaped, but do not weigh too much. Such items may include, small furniture, toys, and food items. Be sure to mark heavy packages with “HEAVY” to ensure safe moving.
Depending on where you are moving from there are different sized containers to match your needs. For example those moving out of an apartment or condo may require a smaller sized container ranging from 25 square feet to 150 square feet. Those moving out of houses however would require a larger sized container anywhere from 150 square feet to 300 square feet.
