Every item in your home is worth something to someone in your family. That is why it is important to pick the perfect box for every item. With the right box items are less likely to get broken or damaged during your move. Winnipeg Moving has been perfecting custom packing for residential long-distance movers since 1975. Follow these easy box tips to provide your items with some sturdy protection during their move.

Small Size Moving Boxes

Heavier items, like books or canned goods, are easiest to move in small size moving boxes. They can also be used to group small items together in one boxed location.

Medium Size Moving Boxes

These cardboard moving boxes are the most versatile and accommodating. Many items can be stored in these boxes during your move, just pay attention to the weight limits that are printed on each box.

Large Size Moving Boxes

Items that are light-weight and bulky are great for large cardboard moving boxes. These items include pillows, stuffed animals, blankets, and comforters. 

Wardrobe Box

These boxes are great because you can hang your clothes on a metal rod, like you were putting them in your closet. It is a great option for clothing you want to wrinkle. 

Dish Pack Box

Dish pack boxes contain dividers that allow you to separate fragile and small items. These boxes are great for dishes and glassware, but can be used for virtually any small item.

TV Box

If you do not have a custom box for your flat screen tv, Winnipeg Moving can provide you with a special box designed for properly transporting large televisions.

Electronics Box

This box contains thick walls and can accommodate the size and weight that electronics require. Some examples include microwaves, sound systems, and desktop computers. 

Mattresses Bags & Boxes

Your mattress and box spring need protection during your move. That is why we use plastic mattress bags to protect them from getting dirty. For a little extra money, you can get durable mattress bags or boxes with handles to provide extra protection. 

Extra Tall Box

These items allow you to move tall and narrow items like golf clubs, fishing equipment, and floor lamps

Large Picture / Mirror Box

Protecting mirrors and pictures is important during every move. These boxes usually contain handles for easier transportation.

File Box

This box is important for individuals who are moving personal files or documents not in a desk or filing cabinet.
