Use Quality Boxes for Moving
Inside your moving boxes are valuable, sometimes priceless possessions. Not all moving boxes are alike. You should understand and be aware of how box quality, size and load capacity will affect your move. Here are some common questions and answers about moving boxes and moving supplies.
"Are your moving boxes brand new?"
YES - we only sell brand new, un-printed boxes direct from the biggest moving box manufacturers in the USA.
"Why is box strength important?"
Corrugated moving boxes come in all shapes, densities, strengths and sizes - the stronger the box, the greater the protection of its contents. The moving industry is very competitive, but professional movers use moving boxes that are at least 32 ECT (or 200lb test) in strength. These ratings are standard in the moving box industry and help insure that your household belongings will arrive safely. Weaker boxes will crush under a fairly insignificant weight load. No moving, truck rental or self storage company should sell a moving box weaker than 32 ECT (200lb test). Some retailers sell much weaker (by 45%) 150lb test moving boxes and call them moving boxes. BEWARE! Such boxes are actually designed for light-weight usage and should not be used for moving.
"How Do I Know How Strong My Box Is?"
All boxes have a seal printed on the bottom flap by the manufacturer certifying the box's strength. Industry standard Moving Boxes are 200lb test weight or 32 ECT. Larger boxes like wardrobe or kitchen dish pack boxes should have a higher test weight/strength. Also on the certificate seal you will find a capacity in weight that the box is designed to handle. Just because a box is large, doesn't mean it can carry a lot of weight. Be sure to check box strength before you purchase to make certain the moving boxes are adequate for your needs.

Yes size is important, let our professional movers pack your belongings for best packing we will provide the boxes and packing materials for the move.
