Moving home is oftentimes a very stressful process. Not only is it time consuming, you are tackling packing your items, transporting them and trying to stay on top of other hidden moving costs! Choosing high quality moving boxes helps to relieve some of this stress, as you can confidently pack and move your fragile and treasured items without worry. Every move requires a range of different boxes of different sizes and styles, and by purchasing from an experienced box manufacturer like Jetbox you can guarantee variety and quality at the same time!
Read on for our suggested boxes for moving, as well as tips and tricks on choosing the right boxes for your needs.
Choosing the Right Sizes
When planning on boxing up and moving your belongings, it is important to consider what you own. For example, if you own a lot of books or appliances they require different boxes to someone who owns lots of small, fragile things. Generally each person owns a myriad of fragile and heavy items, and it is important to make a mental note before purchasing your boxes. The last thing you need is boxes that are packed too heavily, which are difficult to move, or running out of space and sacrificing the safety of your items by forcing them into boxes too small.
Things such as crockery require extra padding, so take this into account as well!
When is the right time to use Small Moving Boxes?
While your mind may first go to small fragile items, small moving boxes are useful for a number of things. Items that need to be packed individually are good to put into small boxes, as are heavier things. We recommend things such as books be packed into smaller boxes, to prevent accidents such as the bottom of boxes popping open as well as boxes being dropped or movers being injured.
When is the right time to use Medium Moving Boxes?
The majority of your moving boxes will most likely be of medium, or average size. These boxes are perfect for moving kitchen wear such as plates, toys, games and more. We generally don’t recommend packing medium boxes with items that are heavy or bulky as these will be difficult to carry.
When is the right time to use Large Moving Boxes?
Large moving boxes are perfect for blankets, duvets, clothing, pillows and other large but lightweight items.
Best Moving Boxes for Stacking and Storing
Something you may not consider is how easily stackable all your boxes are. If you are using old moving boxes of various sizes it can be precarious, and even dangerous, to stack them in your home and in the moving truck. By purchasing many boxes of the same size, eg 10 50 Litre Cartons then you know they will stack together safely and easily.
At Jetbox, all of our boxes are manufactured in Melbourne to the highest standards. Our boxes stack and store without easily deteriorating, allowing you to unpack at your own pace.
