Basic moving boxes

The 1.5 cubic foot moving box, also known as the book or record box, is the smallest box offered by Elephant Moving. It is best suited for small, heavy items like books, records, cans, jars of food, utensils, flatware, shoes, and so forth.

Moving boxes of 3 cubic feet are sometimes referred to as lamp or lampshade boxes and are interchangeable with boxes of 1.5 cubic feet.

Use a 4.5 cubic foot moving box for lighter items like pillows, bedding, and plush animals as the box gets bigger.

Use a 6 cubic foot box for light products only; moving heavier objects packed in this box will be challenging.

Movable box for a mirror or picture

a four-piece box that may be adjusted by telescoping in and out; available in large or small sizes (small pictured); Before putting your mirror or picture in the box, make sure to cover it in bubble wrap and add some crumpled packing paper to the corners for support.

Moving boxes for wardrobes

Features a metal bar at the top of the box where clothes may be hung so that they can be transported on hangers.

Dishes-moving boxes

The strongest box available, it is also known as a barrel, dish barrel, or dish box. It is typically used for packing fragile, breakable items like china. 

Packing materials

Packing paper, sometimes known as plain newsprint, is used to cushion products by wrapping commonplace objects in it to prevent scratches.

Tissue paper, which is softer than newspaper and is used to bundle fragile figurines and china, provides padding and fills in small gaps.

Once small, delicate items have been wrapped in tissue, they are then wrapped in bubble wrap, a plastic wrapping material that is made up of hundreds of tiny “air cushions” or bubbles. Bubble wrap is also useful for wrapping larger, more fragile items like lamps and pictures.

Electronics like stereos and laptops are protected from static electricity by pink anti-static bubble wrap. Although it does not produce static electricity, it is comparable to conventional bubble wrap. These products could be harmed if regular bubble wrap is used to package them because it could generate a static electric charge.

Plastic tape, 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) to 2 inches (5.08 cm) wide, is best for packing. Before taping up drawers and canisters, check to see if it damages the finish.

Use a permanent marker to identify the boxes with the contents and the new location; when necessary, mark the boxes as “fragile” and “this side up.”

As you disassemble items, use resealable plastic bags to store the nuts and bolts. Tape the bag to the disassembled item.
