Moving Boxes Sizes
Having a set of moving boxes handy doesn't seem like on of your biggest concerns - until you actually have to move. That's when you wish you had prepared for the moving process more thoroughly. Boxing your belongings is one of the safest and most convenient ways to transport them, no matter how long the distance is. Here is a quick guide at some of the most common moving box sizes and their usage.
Medium Moving Boxes
Medium moving boxes are probably the most common when moving. They are 16" x 13" x 13" cardboard boxes, very lightweight and tough. They offer excellent protection for a wide variety of items, starting from collectibles, books, hobby items, decorations and the list goes on.
Large Moving Boxes
Large moving boxes have a size of 16" x 18" x 18". In general, all of the larger items mentioned in the list above will fit perfectly in these boxes. Kitchenware and appliances are the most common things to get packed into Large sized moving boxes. Even heavier items, such as bronze statues, for example, may be packed with confidence, as the sturdy cardboard box will not fail unless extreme weight is present. The boxes are shipped in an outer wrap.
Extra Large Moving Boxes
Larger household items, such as computers, stereos or videos will usually go into our Extra Large moving boxes (24" x 18" x 18"). Most of the items used in a bedroom will also fit in such boxes (you can pack pillows, blankets and even lamps). Some people prefer the Extra Large boxes even if they have smaller items, as they can group them together by their own criteria. Although they are very tough, you should still keep in mind that you cannot carry absolutely anything in a cardboard box.
One interesting option for moving your clothes is a Wardrobe Boxes. These are usually 24" x 21" x 36" and they are similar to having your own mobile clothes closet. Even after the moving is finished, they are still excellent for storing winter clothing - simply place them in your basement and forget about them, as they will do their job and protect your clothing. Hanger bars are usually fitted in the wardrobe boxes, making sure your clothes are never damaged or even wrinkled during the moving process.
