When you are packing up your home, choosing the right boxes for your items is necessary to ensuring they are well protected during your move. While smaller items can be stored in regular moving boxes, you may need specialty boxes with added durability to securely move heavy objects and large objects like mirrors and fine art. You may not have these boxes and packing supplies on hand, but luckily Firemen Movers does. Here are some of the packing and moving boxes for sale that we provide.

Storage Boxes

Since storage boxes are generally put away in the attic, garage, or a long-term storage location, they are designed to pack more weight and stand the test of time. They can load more than moving or shipping boxes, and can also be stacked for safe, secure storage.

Moving Boxes

Moving boxes are generally used by homeowners as they prepare to move into their new home. These boxes are thinner compared to shipping boxes, and are more affordable when purchased in bulk. These boxes are thinner because they are generally not moved too often, and are stacked, which prevent the contents from getting damaged or shifted around.

Shipping Boxes

Shipping boxes are more durable than moving boxes. They are designed for home and office moving and protect the items inside from bumps, scratches, and shifting during shipping. They are made of heavyweight cardboard that is stronger and thicker than most boxes. The reason these boxes are so durable is because they are moved and handled multiple times during long-distance transits. If you are sending items to a foreign or far location, you will need the sturdier boxes to protect the contents from getting damaged.

Packing Boxes

If you have small, fragile items, packing boxes are the best option. They are usually made from cardboard and can store gifts like toys, photo frames, etc. However, they must be secured carefully during a move to prevent the boxes from sliding around or getting damaged.

Specialty Boxes/Cartons

Sometimes there are items that need special handling and packing. These items may include mirrors, telescopes, sculptures, fine art and paintings, large electronics, and even your wardrobe. These items cannot fit in the standard boxes, and will need special boxes to make packing easier and safer. It is important to only use boxes that are designed for these valuables when moving your possessions.
