When you are packing moving boxes, remember that 1 can may be lightweight, but 100 cans are heavy.
This is why professional moving boxes have three standard sizes with the most important one being the smallest 1.5 cubic moving box. (Otherwise known as the All Purpose moving box) When packing boxes up with cans, or books and it will not become too heavy to lift and/or risk breaking.
Some of the small items in your home that don’t weigh a lot individually but get heavy with volumn include:
- Packing cans
- Packing books
- Packing photo albums
- Phone books
