Types Of Boxes For Your Move

For any person wishing to move, majority of the times you will be finding yourself to be needing boxes, so that you can easily pack the smaller items. Its important that you do use the correct size boxes for certain items. Some boxes are created in a specific size to carry up to a certain weight, whilst others are created to carry bigger weights and be able to withstand a more heavier weight.

To help you, we will be highlighting the different sizes of boxes, and what they are perfect for packing:

Small Size Boxes

The average size of a small box, a volume of 1.5 Cubic Feet. Although in size they are very small, but they are perfect to pack items such as:

  • CD’s
  • DVD’s
  • Canned foods
  • Spices
  • Small fragile items
  • Glassware items.
  • Crockery

The great benefit to using a small box, is that they are alot more easier to carry.

Medium Size Boxes

Medium sized boxes are twice the size of the relatively small sized boxes, a volume of 3.0 Cubic Feet. These are perfect for packing more larger items as they can withstand the weight alot more easier. Items such as:

  • Bed Linen
  • Appliances
  • Crockery
  • Clothing
  • Hobbies (Toys, models and etc)
  • CD’s and DVD’s
  • Electronic Device

Large & Extra Large Size Boxes

With  a volume of 4.5 cubic feet for large boxes and 6.0 cubic feet for the extra large boxes, these boxes are designed to help pack larger items which won’t fit in the smaller boxes. They are able to withstand a more heavier weight than the other sizes.

Larger Boxes are perfect for:

  • Lamps
  • Files
  • Boardgames
  • Books

A added advantage is that you are able to pack more items, but you still need to be careful not to overload as the bottom part can give way if its too heavy.
