Boxes and Packing Materials for Your Move

Whether you’re packing yourself or getting help from the pros, it is important to use quality boxes. Boxes hold your belongings in place during the move and protect your stuff from scratches and scuffs during shipping, so you don’t want to use old or beaten up boxes that might fall apart during the course of the move. Using standard moving boxes also helps your crew stack and load boxes tightly on the truck, since they are all uniform sizes.
