Packing Materials

Boxessss

Majority of materials used by movers to pack household items are boxes different sizes, and different wrapping materials to protect items during relocation or in storage. Materials need to be used accordingly to the industrial specifications. Proper boxes and the right amount of padding of packing paper, bubble. The boxes need to be taped appropriately, to be safely sealed and be able to withstand multiple times they will be handled by movers during the loading, unloading, and time in transit. The boxes will be professionally secured inside the truck. It is important to clearly indicate on the boxes its contents. This will allow movers properly stack them inside the truck. Heavy and bulky boxes, such as boxes with books, files, papers, etc. go on the bottom of the load, while fragile boxes will be stacked on top.

Furniture can not be boxed. Movers dis assemble furniture and protect each piece separately. Some larger pieces are protected by moving pads, however glass and antique furniture require extra protection. Movers use moving blankets, bubble and shrink wrap as well as in some cases carton and/or wood.

There are plenty of items in any household that can not be packed inside a regular box. Those items require special handling - known as crating.

There are two types of crates:

Soft crates are made out of double strength carton. Often, movers use dishpack or wardrobe boxes to create a proper size crate to protect the article.

Wooden crates are made days before relocation. Movers will come out and take measurements of the items requiring this type of protection. Then having those measurements our carpenters make wooden crates. Wooden crates take a few days for preparation and are commonly used to protect expansive artwork that is being relocated long distance and international shipments.
