Cardboard Boxes Vs. Plastic Storage
Cardboard boxes are the go-to for moving. However, what about taking this opportunity to switch over some of your cardboard boxes to plastic storage containers. Plastic containers are a great way to secure breakable items in totes that will not bend and break as easily. They are also weather-resistant, so if it is raining on a moving day, you don’t have to worry about the box getting the contents all wet.
When packing your moving van, the storage containers tend to stack better, and some even have a locking lid built in to help stabilize them. Transparent containers are great for helping keep track of inventory, getting them to the correct room, and seeing any immediate damage.
Storage containers are also suitable for the items you don’t plan to unpack immediately. They can store your items in a safer environment that won’t deteriorate, have moisture damage, or become a home for critters.
