Moving Box Sizes

By Matt McCabe

Having a set of moving boxes handy doesn't seem like on of your biggest concerns - until you actually have to move. That's when you wish you had prepared for the moving process more thoroughly. Boxing your belongings is one of the safest and most convenient ways to transport them, no matter how long the distance is. Here is a quick guide at some of the most common moving box sizes and their usage.

Small moving boxes are probably the most common when moving. They are 15x12x9 cardboard boxes, very lightweight and tough. They offer excellent protection for a wide variety of items, starting from collectibles, books, hobby items, decorations and the list goes on. Moving box manufacturers usually ship such boxes to the customer as flat boxes, contained in a larger box (which you can also use to box up larger items).

Medium moving boxes have a size of 18x14x12. In general, all of the larger items mentioned in the list above will fit perfectly in these boxes. Kitchenware and appliances are the most common things to get packed into medium sized moving boxes. Even heavier items, such as bronze statues, for example, may be packed with confidence, as the sturdy cardboard box will not fail unless extreme weight is present. The boxes are shipped in frame boxes which you may use to pack mirrors or any other type of large, flat item.

Larger household items, such as computers, stereos or videos will usually go into a larger moving box (20x20x15). Most of the items used in a bedroom will also fit in such boxes (you can pack pillows, blankets and even lamps). Extra large boxes (23x23x16) are used when even larger items need to be packed. Some people prefer the larger boxes even if they have smaller items, as they can group them together by their own criteria. Although they are very tough, you should still keep in mind that you cannot carry absolutely anything in a cardboard box.

One interesting option for moving your clothes is a wardrobe box. These are usually 24x24x40 and they are similar to having your own mobile clothes closet. Even after the moving is finished, they are still excellent for storing winter clothing - simply place them in your basement and forget about them, as they will do their job and protect your clothing. Hanger bars are usually fitted in the wardrobe boxes, making sure your clothes are never damaged or even wrinkled during the moving process.
