HOW TO PLAN FOR AN EFFICIENT MOVE?

How many boxes should I need?

Based on our experience, we advise planning on 12 - 15 boxes per room. This is approximate as rooms such as a kitchen will require more boxes than a bedroom etc.

How to measure a box?

Always take measurements from the INTERIOR of your boxes.

Enter your dimensions in the following order:

Length x Width x Height

Dimensions are in inches. If your measures are in cm, simply DIVIDE your numbers by 2.51 to obtain the equivalent in inches.

In this example, we have a box measuring 16" x 11" x 8".

What size boxes will I need?

To pack dishes, books, and other small but heavy items, we suggest a box size of 1.5 to 2 cubic foot capacity. For pots and pans, toys, and clothing we recomend a box size of 3 cubic foot capacity. Finally, to pack pillows, cushions, bed linens and other large lightweight items, we recomend a 5 cubic foot capacity box. Check the best moving boxes kits for you.

How can I protect my fragile objects ?

For packing everyday dishes and tableware, we suggest using packing paper ( sold in packages) this product has a texture that is similar to newsprint and offers excellent protection during transport without the marks left by regular newspaper inks. For items such as your collectables, crystal, china, porcelaine, small mirrors and frames, we suggest using our EPI certified biodegradable bubble wrap. ( available in rolls ).

IMPORTANT NOTE: For maximum protection of fragile items, it is advisable that they be packed towards the center of the box and that all voids, in, and around the items filled with crushed or balled up paper to avoid movement.

Take the time to identify your boxes with labels:

We suggest you take the time to identify your cardboard boxes using color codes for each piece. The movers will easily gather your moving boxes and save you time and money through improved efficiency. When it comes time to unpack, you'll be glad to found the content to get you back in working order quickly.
