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.

The delivery was on time, and the way they handled the furniture was impressive. So far, everything looks fine.

From the beginning the whole process has been professional. From the rep that gave me an estimate to the movers themselves.

They managed to put together everything and come up with the dates we needed in a short notice. It was a move that came about real quick and they were able to accommodate us. There was a little mix up with the furniture arriving earlier than it was supposed to. We were supposed to be there on the 10th of December but they showed up on the 9th of December.

There was nothing wrong other than communication. They did not let me know that they were not going to delivered on the promise date. They were late on the delivery by one day.

When they were packing they were careful. So far I have not found anything broken. They treated my stuff like it was their own. Two items were broken. The driver Calvin told me that someone would come out and repair my furniture. Calvin told me that it fell off the top of the truck.

The delivery was 2 days late but mostly only plastic bins are broken. The stickers didn't stay on some boxes so that makes it hard to know if I have everything. No one called about a del time. My delivery was 2 days late b/c I was told it was in the warehouse and no one wanted to move it. My move in 2007 was great though.

The communication was good but there was miscommunication between the driver and Allied. I was supposed to have it done earlier but there was some miscommunication between my company and Allied. The driver was awesome.
