Standard moving boxes

Small Box: The smallest box sold at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is 1.5 cubic feet. This box is often referred to as the book or record box because it’s best used for small, heavy objects, such as books, records, cans, jars, utensils, flatware, shoes, and more.

Medium Box: Often referred to as the “lampshade” box, this 3 cubic foot box is used interchangeably with the small box box. This box is best fit for holding items such as smaller home appliances or lighter children’s toys.

Large Box: With a 4.5 cubic foot dimension, this moving box should be used for larger objects such as pillows, bedding, and stuffed animals.

Extra Large Box: Same as the large box, this 6 cubic foot box should be used for larger objects, such as clothing items. Remember – if you pack heavy items in these boxes, they will be more difficult to move.

Picture or mirror moving box: A four-piece box that can come in large or small sizes can be customized by telescoping in and out; use crumpled packing paper in the corners to add cushion and make sure to wrap your mirror or picture with bubble wrap before placing it in the box.

Wardrobe moving boxes: Allows clothes to be transported on hangers; includes a metal bar along top of box to hang clothing.

Boxes for moving dishes: Also called a barrel, dish barrel or dish box; it's the strongest box available; pack fragile, breakable items such as china; usually used for kitchen items.

Dish pack inserts: Cardboard that goes inside the dish pack boxes to form individual cells for fragile items; inserts adjustable; extra cardboard piece included to be used as springboard to cushion

Good news – TWO MEN AND A TRUCK boxes are perfect for re-use! Whether you donate them to friends or family for their moves, save them around the house for extra storage, or get creative and make a few DIY Halloween costumes, or “Boxtumes” as we call it, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK boxes can fit any moving or storage need.

Packing supplies

Packing paper/plain newsprint: Used to wrap everyday items to prevent scratching; when crunched up it can be used as cushioning.

Tissue paper: Softer than newsprint, used for wrapping very delicate items; also provides cushioning and fills in small spaces when packing fragile figurines and china.

Bubble wrap: Plastic packing material made up of hundreds of tiny "air cushions" or bubbles used to over-wrap small, delicate items after they are wrapped in tissue; also helpful when wrapping larger fragile items such as lamps and pictures.

Pink anti-static bubble wrap: Used to wrap electronics including stereos and computers. It is similar to traditional bubble wrap but does not cause static electricity. If traditional bubble wrap is used to pack these items, a static electric charge could be created, damaging the item.

Packing tape/sealing tape: Plastic tape, 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) to 2 inches (5.08 cm) wide; best for packing, test to see if it ruins finish before taping up drawers and canisters.

Permanent marker: Used to label boxes with contents and destination in new location; mark boxes "fragile" and "this side up" when appropriate.

Re-sealable plastic bags: Used for nuts and bolts as you disassemble items, tape bag to disassembled item.
