Boxes come in all shapes and sizes, and are a staple to any kind of move, big or small. Boxes affect your packing, which is the most essential task when it comes to a move. This is why you should choose the right kind of boxes and use them the right way to make everything flow more efficiently, beginning from the packing process up to the unpacking at your new place.
For one, don't limit yourself to just one box size. By far, the most commonly used sizes are large and medium boxes, but there are also other sizes you can use to better accommodate other things.
When it comes to weight, make sure to never exceed the weight limit of the box. Don't overfill it as well, and include some cushioning material such as packing peanuts or bubble wrap. Of course, you also need to take extra protective measures when packing breakable items.
There are also different kinds of boxes available. People who are looking for a greener move will be happy to know that there are boxes for rent - usually sturdier but less expensive plastic boxes - that are reusable and remove the need to have leftover boxes after you've unpacked.
