To ensure that your belongings remain undamaged during the move, it is best to use specific types of moving boxes suited to their purposes, like book boxes, linen boxes, dinnerware boxes, etc. Be sure to take the dimensions and carrying capacity of the box into account. Get your children involved in the move, too, and have them pack their own belongings in our fun kids’ moving boxes. A family of 3 or fewer will need approximately 30 boxes. A family of 5 or fewer will need approximately 60 to 75 moving boxes.
Cardboard moving boxes or plastic moving boxes?
Plastic boxes are perfect for storing things like sheets, clothing, duvets, pillows, and blankets after your move is finished. The cardboard boxes can be folded up and easily stored away after your move is finished. Or they can be used to store and tidy up toys, Christmas decorations, table decorations, crafting materials, etc.
