Information on packaging materials and boxes
Packaging materials and mobile boxes
Regardless of whether you need professional, reliable and reliable loaders to help with the transfer or not, it is always useful to buy (or find free) boxes with good conditions and packaging materials. In some cases, proper moving boxes and corrugated boxes can save you several hours at the cost of your move. It is also worth buying packaging materials such as packaging tape, bubble wrap, peanut packing, cabinets, plastic transport boxes, etc. The boxes can be purchased from truck rental companies, car transporters, vaults, moving company offices, liquor stores or supermarkets. Packing materials can be purchased at local transportation companies or at Cross Chicago Movers if you intend to travel long distances across North America or the United States.
You can also use fruit boxes that used to contain oranges and bananas, but they usually have a rectangular opening at the top, so if they are not filled with objects, they do not stack well in a moving pickup truck. Moving boxes come in all sizes and shapes, but the most common format for cardboard boxes is 2 cubes, 4 cubes and 6 cubes (short for cubic feet). To pack moving boxes, you also need crates & wardrobes delivered right to your door as well as adhesive tape and soft and durable materials to keep your belongings safe and sound. To simplify the classification of our cardboard boxes and cards during the transfer, it is recommended to place a sheet of colored paper in each box and do the same in each room of the destination. Colored paper is easier to identify than numbers or letters.
Plastic moving boxes
If you are using plastic moving boxes, bags or a trash can, do not use a marker on the surface, as they are reusable and will be used by other customers for the next move to any place in the city or North America. If you need a marker for plastic bags, baskets or boxes, you can buy a non-permanent marker and then erase the labels after moving it. Another very convenient new option is plastic boxes, baskets and recyclable bags. Carriers can do all the packing for you, and this will save the environment and also save you money, since the plastic boxes are made of 100% recyclable plastic and can be reused. Sometimes, this is the best solution for corporate travel, since the company can buy plastic boxes that can be recycled and used again without buying crates & wardrobes in Chicago each time.
