Moving boxes are a key component of your move. Transporting your belongings securely and safely depends largely on the moving boxes you choose for various items. The wrong moving boxes can prove to be unstable and may assist in the damage of your belongings during transit. Manchester solves the problem of selecting the wrong moving boxes by providing all the types of moving boxes you need during a relocation.
If you’re confused about which moving boxes you need, don’t worry. Our list of cartons and their purposes below will help you determine which you need and those you can do without. In addition to this list, your Manchester team is always there to help you during the moving process, even with picking out cartons.
We have four standard sizes of moving boxes that are designed specifically for certain belongings.
- 1.5 cu. ft. moving boxes are small, yet sturdy; these cartons are great for books, records or other heavier items.
- 3.1 cu. ft. moving boxes, are medium sized and can effectively pack many types of belongings such as toys, pots and pans and more average size and weight items.
- 4.5 cu. ft. moving boxes are best for lightweight, bigger items such as towels, comforters, linens and toys.
- Also ideal for large, lighter items are our 6.0 cu. ft. moving boxes. These large cartons are great for packing bedding, pillows and lampshades.
Mirrors, Mattresses? We Have the Moving Supplies
Aside from standard moving boxes, we also offer specialty cartons crafted to pack odd sized or large, fragile items. Our mirror cartons are ideal for large, flat mirrors or other objects of that size such as pictures, glass table tops, etc. Our mattress cartons can pack your mattress and box spring separately and are available in crib, single, double and queen/king sizes. Our wardrobe carton is designed with a metal bar that runs across the top so that you can hang your clothing, draperies or linens for transport. These boxes are not sturdy enough to hold anything in the bottom, so be sure just to hang the clothes.
Moving Supplies for the Fragile Items
Our dishpack cartons are designed to securely hold your dishes, china and other fragile items. These cartons are outfitted with dividers that separate your fragile belongings, preventing them from hitting each other and breaking. These dishpack cartons can also hold crystal and glassware, in addition to any other items you are worried about shipping.
