Guide to Moving Boxes

moving boxes

Moving boxes are a key component of your move. Transporting your belongings securely and safely depends largely on the moving boxes you choose for various items. The wrong moving boxes can prove to be unstable and may assist in the damage of your belongings during transit. Allied solves the problem of selecting the wrong moving boxes by providing all the types of moving boxes you need during a relocation.

Choose the Right Moving Supplies

No matter what you're moving or how far you're going, Allied has the moving boxes to suit your moving needs. As you can see below, our moving boxes come in all different strengths and sizes to help ensure a safe and efficient move. Our moving boxes vary in purpose, so no matter what part of the house you're packing, your belongings will have the appropriate boxes.

If you're confused about which moving boxes you need, don't worry. Our list of cartons and their purposes below will help you determine which you need and those you can do without. In addition to this list, your Allied team is always there to help you during the moving process, even with picking out cartons. Your local agent will recommend the appropriate moving boxes for your needs.

 Moving Supplies to Meet All Your Needs

We have four standard sizes of moving boxes that are designed specifically for certain belongings.

  • Our 1.5 cu. ft. moving boxes are small, yet sturdy; these cartons are great for books, records or other heavier items.
  • The next size up, the 3.1 cu. ft. moving boxes, are medium sized and can effectively pack many types of belongings such as toys, pots and pans and more average size and weight items.
  • Our 4.5 cu. ft. moving boxes are best for lightweight, bigger items such as towels, comforters, linens and toys.
  • Also ideal for large, lighter items are our 6.0 cu. ft. moving boxes. These large cartons are great for packing bedding, pillows and lampshades.

Mirrors, Mattresses? We Have the Moving Supplies

Aside from standard moving boxes, we also offer specialty cartons crafted to pack odd sized or large, fragile items. Our mirror cartons are ideal for large, flat mirrors or other objects of that size such as pictures, glass table tops, etc. Our mattress cartons can pack your mattress and box spring separately and are available in crib, single, double and queen/king sizes. Our wardrobe carton is designed with a metal bar that runs across the top so that you can hang your clothing, draperies or linens for transport. These types of moving boxes are not sturdy enough to hold anything in the bottom, so be sure just to hang the clothes.

Moving Supplies for the Fragile Items

Our dishpack or "china barre" cartons are designed to securely hold your dishes, china and other fragile items. These cartons are outfitted with dividers that separate your fragile belongings, preventing them from hitting each other and breaking. These dishpack cartons can also hold crystal and glassware, in addition to any other items you are worried about shipping.

Allied Has the Moving Supplies You Need

Our inventory of moving boxes is available to you to meet your every packing need. We provide a wide array of sizes and types of moving boxes to properly pack your entire house. Our sturdy moving boxes are also affordably priced for our valued customers, so you don't have to sacrifice quality for cost. Our itemized list of moving boxes below will provide you with a guide as to how to determine which cartons you need.

This is my 6th corporate move and the crew was without a doubt the best. The crew was excellent, packed well and was very organized. The packers and delivery team was the same team.

Allied was professional but the amount of packers they sent wasn't enough. They initially sent 2 people out but they had to send more later that night to pack everything up. Packing was my only issue.

The driver took care of thing very professionally, and he was very aware and attentive to detail. He pointed out damage in the house before he started working. He never got frustrated. He was great. I was very impressed with the service from Reane the coordinator. The delivery driver had to remove our door, and he never got frustrated doing that.

When Pete came out to the house I accepted the bid given. I was not bothered by phone calls. I was given a packet to help with things to do. They called a week and a day before. The driver was very much a gentleman and his crew was excellent. They were very careful with my items, though it was difficult to move my items. They didn't damage one thing.

I rated a nine b/c I don't give tens. It varies with local vendors. Every area has different crews. Overall, we had a good experience. Our items were in storage for eight years. Some box lids were broken, but that was the result of long storage and not the crew.
