Knowing how to pack things the right way before you start packing is extremely important for a smooth move. Here at 123 Moving and Storage we try our best to prepare our current and prospective clients for any move. In this post we will be focusing on how to pack medium sized boxes. Medium sized boxes are industry standard sized boxes that can be used for a number of common household items. After following these simple tips you’ll feel like an expert medium-sized-box-packer!
Medium boxes are the easiest and fastest boxes to pack. They carry large and durable items, for example pillows, blankets, and linens. Medium boxes come in a variety of sizes, but the two most common sizes are the 3.0 carton (18″ x18″ x16″ cubic feet) and the 4.5 carton (18″ x18″ x24″ cubic feet). Each box is packed similarly, but the 4.5 box’s are generally used for lighter and larger objects that would take up too much space in a 3.0 box.
Items Packed into a Medium Sized Box:
- Folded Clothes
- Small appliances
- Stereo Components
- Large Lampshades
By following these tips you can rest assured that your items will be safe during your upcoming move. Be sure to check out our website for more information on moving and storage. Good luck with your packing!
