Get Cheap Corrugated Cardboard Boxes That Are Strong and Resistant For Moving and Storing!
Most consumers do not know that there are different types of cardboard boxes. Some are manufactured specifically to be used as gift boxes, some are intended to hold produce and/or vegetables, while other corrugated cartons are to created to ship goods overseas.
Corrugated cardboard boxes are as different in their use and in their application as actual paper is. For example, resume paper has unique purposes that are different from "copy paper." Finger painting glossy paper is used in a unique way that is different than art paper.
Just like any tool, when people use the correct item for the right application, the results are much better. The same is true when you use the right type of supply for moving, your final results will be much better.
Cardboard Boxes 101
Most people have no interest in learning all the "ins and outs" of the corrugated supply business. Rather they simply want to be able to spend as little money as they need in order to get the right cartons that will help them move their items with care in to their new home as inexpensively as possible.
So to do this, be sure to buy corrugated cardboard boxes that are 32 ECT (200lbs). This means that the fibers are well made and secure enough to help guarantee that your most prized items are well taken care. The 32 ECT means that 32 pounds of pressure placed on it without the box getting smashed.
The next thing to learn about packing boxes is once they get wet they are forever weaker. This is why it is often risky to move with "used boxes" that might once been dampened during transit. Although you can get free boxes from almost any store you go to, 99% of the time they are containers that do little to assure that no harm will come of your assets.
Lastly, when choosing packing boxes, it is a good idea to only use a few different sizes for better stackability. Layering them on top of each other is what it is all about. The more condensed the containers are, the less space in a rental truck or a storage unit that you will need; all of which has cost savings associated with it.

In the moving and storing industry, there are cartons that are specifically built to be used for this purpose. They are industrial strength and can be stacked on top of each other without squeezing the contents of the boxes below.

2. Medium Boxes
These containers are a movers best friend. They are wonderful to pack anything that will fit inside, and are not likely to get too heavy even if you fill them to the top.
You have to be careful when packing big sized boxes that you don't make them too heavy. It is very easy to accidently overpack the large box and/or the extra large box. These corrugated cartons are only intended to be used for bulky lighter items like comforters, pillows and large stuffed animals and should not be used for any item that is heavy, or would become heavy if several of them were placed in the box.
For example, 1 can is not heavy but if you were to fill up a big carton with 100 cans, it would be too heavy to lift.
Longer cardboard boxes are great to use for hanging clothes and can be used in creative fashions for many other purposes.
If you buy it from a mover you can get a very long size which is not possible to ship by UPS, and if you order it online you can get the shorter version that is 24"x24"x 40"; otherwise known as the "Shorty Wardrobe Box." This corrugated carton can be extremely useful to pack all kinds of things that are more elongated in size.
For example, if you need to move plants in a U-Haul, longer cartons can help make sure that the dirt doesn't get all over the truck or on your other items. In addition, you can pack sports equiptment like tennis rackets or things like boogie boards that are more bulky in size.
