Moving Boxes FAQ:
Inside the boxes you use for moving are your valuable, in some cases priceless possessions. Not all boxes are alike. You should be aware of how box quality, size and loads will affect your move. Below are some questions and answers about moving boxes and moving supplies, as well as about our company and our services:

"Why is box strength important?"
Corrugated boxes come in all shapes, strengths and sizes - the stronger the box, the greater the protection for its contents. The moving industry is very competitive, but professional movers use moving boxes that are at least 32 ECT (or 200lb test) in strength. These ratings are standard from the box industry, and help insure that your household belongings will arrive safely. Weaker boxes will crush under load. No moving, truck rental or self storage company should sell a moving box weaker than 32 ECT (200lb test). There are some retailers that sell much weaker (by 46%) 150lb test boxes and calling them moving boxes. BEWARE! This box was actually designed for light-weight usage and should not be used for moving.

"How Do I Know How Strong My Box Is?"
All boxes have a certificate seal printed on the bottom flap by the manufacturer certifying the box's strength. Industry standard Moving Boxes are 200lb test weight or 32 ECT. Larger boxes like Wardrobes or kitchen dish pack boxes Kitchen should have a higher test weight/strength. Also on the certificate you will find a capacity in weight that the box is designed to handle. Just because a box is large, doesn't mean it can carry a lot of weight. Make sure to check box strength before you make a purchase to make sure they are adequate for your needs.

"Is size important?"
Yes, size matters! But only in the sense of manageability. Many moving companies sell large boxes for use by large men and their large moving machines. Based on customer demand, our boxes are slightly smaller and more manageable. Most of our clients are self-movers, but either way, how you pack the box is as important as how large the box is. The number one cause of damage during a move is a box that is not fully packed. Empty space in a box creates trouble. See our Packing Tips for more details
