This chart below shows approximately how many of each box type one would typically need to store the amount of items. Storage America carries a complete line of quality moving and storage supplies at discounted prices. Follow this link to our Packing Supply Order Form.
Buy as many as you think you may need.
NEVER use boxes that once contained food, cosmetics or liquor – they have an odor and can attract rodents.
Use quality packing materials – duct tape loses its adhesion in hot or cold temperatures. You may not know that until a bottom falls out of your box!
Remember – heavy items go into small boxes. A large box full of books will require Hercules to lift it into your truck! Large boxes are great for pillows, stuffed animals, and other large but light weight stuff. Your back will appreciate your consideration!
Stack boxes – of the same size whenever possible and always place the heaviest on the bottom. Otherwise the bottom boxes can be crushed and cause an avalanche!
