When you're undergoing a move, what's the first thing you think of to get to help you facilitate a more seamless transition? If you guessed boxes, then you guessed correctly. No matter how big or small a move may be, boxes will always be an aspect that's included.

So, how do you know what kind of boxes to get? This decision can be more complicated than you might have thought. This blog will walk you through the various types of boxes and what they are best used for.

But, before we tell you everything you need to know about boxes, we thought you might want to know a little bit about us. 

Since 1982, Azalea Moving has been the most trusted moving and storage company in Charleston, offering our customers a wide variety of services. Focusing on our customer's needs, we're proud to offer quality services for long-distance moves, storage needs, commercial moving, and more.

Small Moving Boxes

While they may be small, they're actually more powerful. As it turns out, you'll want to reserve your small boxes for heavier items like the following:

  • Books
  • Canned Goods
  • Weights
  • Pots and Pans

Large Boxes

Large boxes will be used for lighter items that tend to take up more space. Think about things around your home, like the following:

  • Pillows
  • Comforters
  • Blankets
  • Stuffed Animals

Medium Sized Boxes

Medium-sized boxes are the perfect crossover between small and large boxes. You can use them to carry slightly heavier items that may be more compact. With an excellent center of gravity, you can count on your medium boxes to hold firm with what you've packed in them.

Dish Pack Box

Here's where things start to get a little bit crazy. Dish pack boxes come with dividers, so you can use them for items that need to be carefully placed—such as dishes.

Wardrobe Box

Containing a metal rod for hanging, a wardrobe box is perfect for clothing that you don't want to get crammed or wrinkled. Consider the following for your wardrobe box:

  • Blazers
  • Pants
  • Ties

T.V. Box

Protecting one of the essential items in your home, the T.V., this box is designed to reduce the risk of a crack or break. With a unique shape, it can comfortably fit your flat screen T.V. and is a great alternative to wrapping your T.V. in blankets.

Mattress Bags and Boxes

This is a great choice to keep your mattress protected. In order to keep dust that may have accumulated in the moving truck off of your mattress, consider spending a little bit of extra money on a mattress cover.

Large Picture Box

This is a versatile box that's perfect for carrying fragile belongings. Think about items such as the following:

  • Paintings
  • Mirrors
  • Large Decorations

File Box

You'll want to use a file box for important documents in your home. Shaped perfectly to match file size, this is a secure box that you can rely on to keep your most important documents safe during the move.
