UPS shipping can be expensive, but we keep our costs down by shipping from warehouses
throughout the country. This makes your delivery time faster and your boxes arrive in better condition (not after
days and 1000's of miles on a truck). This allow us to pass the saving on to our valued customers.
All of our moving boxes are professional moving grade quality. This means that our
boxes are standard sized moving boxes and constructed of 200# test minimum or 32ECT with a certified load capacity up
to 65 lbs.
Edge Crust Test or ECT - The edge crush test is associated to the stackable sturdiness
of a box. ECT informs you of how many pounds of pressure a box can stand up to (expressed in pounds per lineal inch).
ECT is normally portrayed as a numeric value. For instance, your common single wall shipping and moving boxes rates
an ECT of 32 and is portrayed in the shipping industry as ECT 32.
Bursting Test - Bursting stableness is a trusted way of grading boxes. The bursting
stableness of a box is an evaluation of the power needed to tear or break through the side of corrugated board. This
is always indicated in pounds. For instance, your typical single wall shipping or moving box rates a 200# bursting
No. It is important to read and understand the certification stamp that is on the
boxes. Some companies pass boxes off as actual moving boxes. Boxes are constructed of paper. Just like there are many
types and quality of paper available for your printer, there are various types of quality and paper that go into
manufacturing a box. We utilize moving industry standards in the manufacturing of ALL of our boxes, thereby providing
your valuable items the maximum protection.
In order to provide professional movers quality boxes at the lowest possible price, we
have our boxes manufactured in large quantities, and prepackage them into our convenient bundles. The boxes available
are professional moving box size and shape, and are described by approximate cubic feet. The reason for this is we
have eight distribution centers across the country, and this keeps our cost low so we can offer the best price.
We have an entire commercial shipping box division dedicated to providing the lowest
prices possible, on bulk orders. So, if you are looking to purchase orders for a large move or are a mover that needs
bulk boxes and supplies, please call or email for a quote.
Moving boxes do get weak when reused, and are ruined when they get wet. One of the
biggest concerns is the side of the box where the seam is glued. Over time, the glue becomes unreliable. If you do
use used boxes, you should inspect them carefully before packing for signs of stress, insects and mold. WE DO NOT
SELL USED BOXES.
No. We only sell Bubble Wrap® bubble wrap by Seal Air Corporation. Cheap bubble wrap
does not provide hold air as long and usually results in items arriving damaged due to shifting wile be moved or
Yes. We only sell professional grade packing tape and it is very sticky tape. Our tape
is a premium tape used by professional movers to pack and seal your valuables. It is a higher quality tape than that
available at most retailers. Our tapes aggressive adhesive ensures that it will stick to most surfaces, especially
orrugated cardboard moving boxes.
Estimating your needs is not an exact science. Everyone has varying amounts of
breakables and possessions of high value. Our packing paper is good for wrapping items to avoid scratching but if the
item is delicate you will need to wrap it in bubble wrap. Lining the carton with bubble is also suggested for very
fragile and valuable items. A good rule of thumb however, is to use 5 lbs. of packing paper for each of the dish
No. All of the mattress bags we sell are open on one end for easy insertion of your
mattress or box spring. Simply fold over the excess mattress bag, tape closed utilizing packing tape. Carefully
remove packing tape and store mattress bag for later use. Mattress Bags are also great for protecting and storing
No, we do not have retail stores where you may pick up moving supplies... they are too
expensive to run and are not convenient for most people, and our prices would have to go up, just to stay in business
like other retail stores!!! We provide the lowest price, the best customer service and FAST FREE delivery (1-2 days)
