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 test.
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 stored.
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 boxes packed.
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 seasonal items.
