11 Sep , 2014  

House moving is not the most pleasant thing you are going to do in the weekend. It usually causes a lot of stress. There are a lot of things you should take care of during the home removal. In this post I’m going to talk with you about the items packing.

I’m sure that if you’ve lived in your place for many years you’ve got a lot of valuable items that you want to take with you in your new home

You should pack them carefully and safely transport them, so you are going to need packing boxes, a lot of them. The good news is that the choice is rich when it comes to boxes. There are plenty of them in different sizes, so you can choose these one that will do the best job for you. Here is a list of eight different types of moving boxes.


Glass box

If you have a lot of mugs and glasses it’s a real challenge to transport them from your old to your new home unscathed. You can put them in paper piece by piece, but the packing and unpacking will take you a lot of time. A more practical option is to supply yourself with a glass packing box. It has interlocking dividers that will keep your fragile glasses safe.

Moving box for TV

If you have an expensive TV with led screen it’ll be a total disaster if something happens to it during the home removal. Don’t worry, you can buy a special moving box for your TV as well. Just make sure it’s the exact size as your TV. Carry it out carefully and enjoy it in your new home!


Pictures moving box

Packing is very important when it comes to valuable pictures. In order to make sure they will arrive at your new house intact. You can use these boxes for mirrors too. You know that a broken mirror leads to seven years on unhappy love, right? In order to avoid this, pack the mirror well.

Small moving box

Small moving box (16x12x12 inches, 40x38x38 centimeters) is perfect for kitchen items, books, souvenirs, cosmetics, mobile phone chargers, headphones and other small items that can be lost during the house moving.


Medium moving box

It’s with the size 18x18x16 inches/45x45x40 centimeters and you can carry in it shoes. If you are a Carrie Bradshaw kind of girl  may you will need a few boxes with this size. It’s also suitable for purses, bags and magazines.

Large moving box

Large moving box (18x18x24 inches/ 45x45x60 centimeters) is suitable for larger items like lamps and not so big kitchen appliances like toaster and microwaves, cushions and blankets.


Extra large moving box

It’s with the following size: 22x22x21 inches/55x55x53 centimeters. This box is perfect for big, but light items like toys, pillows, towels, electronic equipment like computers, ovens, TVs, etc.

Wardrobe box

It’s a strong paper box with the size of a real wardrobe with a metal hanger. By putting your clothes there you can be 100% sure that they won’t get dirty or wrinkled during the transportation from your old place to the new home.

I hope you’ll deal with the packing and home removal easily after you are familiar with the different kinds of boxes. Just one more thing: Don’t make the box heavier than 23 kilos.
