Moving equipment: What to do with boxes

Using boxes correctly is important.

Using boxes correctly is important.

If there is one thing that is absolutely necessary to a move, it's moving boxes

When ordering moving boxes, make sure that you will have enough of them. Running out of these items can be a pain, especially if you are packing last-minute. Having to find other receptacles for your belongings can be a problem, and it could derail your pre-set plans for the move.

When putting your items in the box, be sure to keep in mind that it can only support so much weight. If you over-pack a box with heavy things, the chances of it breaking while in transit is much higher. In addition, this is not only important for the durability of the box, but keeping boxes reasonably light will help prevent injury or a higher risk of dropping it while moving it out of the old home and into the new one.

It may be best to use bubble wrap for your items as well, as this will give them an extra layer of protection.

Finally, be certain that you are gentle with your boxes. Stacking heavy items on top of boxes that are light can increase the chance of damage. Furthermore, throwing boxes or dropping them without the proper amount of care could also have less than desirable consequences.
