When preparing to move, take the time to make sure you have the proper moving supplies to get the job done correctly. This is especially important if you are considering packing yourself. If you are hiring a professional moving company, then they should be able to supply you with all the professional grade materials necessary for safe transportation. One of the mistakes customers make is to get all different sized boxes with little integrity to them. The integrity of the box is its ability to withstand pressure. This is very important in the moving process, because the boxes will be stacked in your home, during transport to the truck, in the truck and once again at their final destination. That is a minimum of 4x! Your boxes must be properly packed, and able to withstand the pressure exerted on them during the move.
The most important box in regards to pressure is what is called a China box, aka Dish Pack, or China Barrel. This box is double corruguated, which is an extra layer of cardboard giving it more strength than the average single corrugated box, ie. book box. The China box is named after some of your most precious possessions, namely your fine China. These are the boxes that need to be utilized while packing breakables, stemware, glasses, figurines, vases, and anything fragile. In conjunction with unprinted news print, and bubble wrap these supplies will get your most cherished belongings from point A to point B in pristine condition.
