Bulky itemsThe best box to use for bulky items that are lighter weight are large, or Tea Carton boxes. These are perfect for items like cushions, large plush toys, pots and pans and even your linens. They’re spacious and sturdy and you’d be surprised how much you can fit inside them. Unfortunately, their name doesn’t really give away much about their size or shape but they’re quite common and many stockists like www.yourlocalmovers.com.au can easily give you a bit of a run down.
Delicate itemsFor delicate or heavy items like glassware, statues, fine china or collectables, your best bet is the small box or Book Carton. These are heavily reinforced and carry a lot of weight without overcrowding everything inside, ensuring your expensive collection of Marvel and DC Comics maquettes will arrive in one piece. If you’re a reader and have an extensive collection of books then, obviously, this is your go to box for book transport.
ClothesBelieve it or not, there is a specific box for transporting clothes! It’s called a Porta-Robe and it allows you to hang your clothes along a steel rack set into the top of the box to keep things like your nice dresses, business suits and other delicate clothing items from getting crushed or ruined in transit.
CDs, DVDs and GamesLike most people these days, you’ve probably amassed a size able collection of DVDs and games without even realizing it was happening. When it comes time to move, however, they require an awful lot of storage to cart around. Archive Boxes are the perfect solution. Spacious, hardy and the perfect shape for stacking a tonne of DVDs into.
Paintings and MirrorsOften people will simply wrap their paintings, pictures and mirrors in some heavy cloth for protection and get the removalists to place them on the truck with the other large items but did you know that there’s actually a box designed to store those things safely? The Picture/Painting/Mirror box is ideal for smaller to medium sized frames and mirrors, designed to keep them from getting broken or damaged in transit.
