Using the right box is essential for keeping your items safe during transport. Follow these tips when choosing and packing boxes:
• Purchase new boxes for fragile or valuable items. Used boxes are more likely to tear or sustain damage in transit.
• Sturdy used boxes can be used for soft, unbreakable items like clothes or linens.
• Don’t use boxes that are too large. Empty space allows your items to shift during transit and may cause damage. If your boxes are too large, use clothing, linens, packing paper, or bubble wrap to fill empty spaces.
• Make sure you use heavy-duty double-walled boxes for large, fragile, and heavy items.
