When packing boxes, we advise not to use boxes from grocery stores, liquor stores or any other box used to transport food or drinks. In most cases odors & residue remain in the cardboard and will attract pests and rodents.
Something to think about - not all boxes are created equal. In fact there are different grades of corrugated cardboard. Moving boxes are of a much higher grade than average as they are built to withstand pressure to keep items safe inside. The weaker the box, the more likely they are to crush under pressure when stacked. This is why it is so important when choosing the right boxes.
When Searching for Movers, Let Sunshine Be Your First Choice!
When it comes to packaging your office or home items for moving, you need to find the right boxes and supplies for your items. While any box might seem convenient for whatever items you are moving, you should note that not all boxes are ideal for packaging moving items as they may not be sturdy enough to secure your items safely. This puts your valuables at risk of damage as the boxes might collapse or tear during transit.
At Sunshine Movers, we help keep your items safe and secure when moving with our boxes and supplies services that provide appropriate packaging to suit your specific needs. Our high-grade boxes won’t crash when stacked.
Whether you are moving small items like books and CDs, or huge items like clothing on hangers, we have just the right boxes and supplies for you. This includes protective covering, custom crating and blanket wraps, stretch tape, and tape gun as well as commercial pads for the protection of your valuables.
You don’t have to provide the moving boxes and supplies as we come equipped and ready to go. If you are looking to move, let Sunshine Movers help you in the most convenient and hassle-free manner.
Before you select your boxes, note that you will need packing tape to put them together. Grab plenty of tape because the last thing you want to do is have to stop packing and run to the store for more. One roll will tape:
Review the following recommended taping method to help ensure secure seams while helping to prevent crushing:

People are always looking for ways to save on moving expenses since relocation is expensive. Moving tax deductibles was an excellent way for people to reduce their relocation expenses. However, the 2017 tax reforms disqualified many people from claiming moving tax deductions. Currently, only military members subject to a permanent change of station or deployment orders can claim moving expenses deductions. However, you can claim deductibles if you moved in 2017 and fulfill all requirements. In this case, consult your accountant before filing your taxes for expert guidance.
