Small Box (2 cubic feet) – Heavy items such as books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, canned goods, and records should be packed in these boxes. Heavy items should always be packed in a small box so that the weight does not jeopardize the structural integrity of the box.

Medium Box (4 cubic feet) – Items such as small appliances, pots and pans, shoes, lampshades, and linens should be packed in these boxes.

Large Box (5 cubic feet) – Items such as comforters, baskets, large pots and pans, linens, lamps, and lampshades should be packed in these boxes.

Dish Pack (5.2 cubic feet) – Pack your china, stemware, small pictures, and any items that require extra protection in these boxes. The dish pack box has an extra layer of cardboard to make this box stronger. Make sure to use plenty of paper to wrap each item.

Mirror/Picture Cartons (various sizes) – Pack all pictures and mirrors into these cartons. Place layers of paper on the bottom and top of the carton and pack paper in between each picture. It is recommended that you use bubble wrap to wrap each picture.

Wardrobe (24″ hanger bar) – Pack all hanging clothes into a wardrobe carton. They have a metal bar that hooks into the top of the carton so you can hang any clothes you do not want to pack flat or folded. This is ideal for formal wear such as dresses and suits.
