SMALL MOVING BOXES

1.5 cu. ft

18″ x 12″ x 12″

Small and mighty, these packing boxes are great for items that are smaller and more dense. That means things like books, DVDs, video game consoles, cleaning supplies, magazines, tools, pantry items, canned food, and all those little trinkets. These guys are perfect for packing up those heavier items, since they are hard to overload. When you’re packing, remember this rule: the heavier the item, the smaller the box!

MEDIUM MOVING BOXES

3.0 cu. ft

18″ x 18″ x 16″

Our most versatile box, ideal for books, photo albums, toys, and more. They’re absolutely perfect for kitchenware, small appliances, and collectibles too. They’re great for mixing in heavier and lighter items, so you don’t end up with anything too heavy to lift. You’ll use these boxes the most, so make sure to buy enough moving boxes  for each room.

LARGE MOVING BOXES

4.5 cu. ft

18″ x 18″ x 24″

These are the big boys, excellent for the lighter and awkward sized stuff like pillows, blankets, towels, larger dishes, and even lamps. They’re also great for clothes and linens. We suggest using these for items that are lighter, but would otherwise be awkward to carry on their own.
