Sizes of Moving Boxes
Do You Know What Sizes of Moving Boxes You Need?
Our San Diego movers recommend using specific sizes of moving boxes, to pack specific items into. There are industry standard professional moving boxes that were manufactured to be used for packing specific items.
A general rule of thumb when determining sizes of moving boxes and what to place in them is to pack your belongings into the smallest size of moving the box that it will fit into. The biggest danger when packing is putting too many items into a moving box or using too big of a box. It is very easy for a moving box to become too heavy to carry, to become at risk for damage with things knocking together inside the box, and/or breaking the box because the items are too heavy.
If you follow these general guidelines of what to put inside your moving boxes, you will not have any problems packing or moving.
