Types Of Moving Boxes Available in Vancouver

Paramount Moving is a Vancouver moving company that provides a huge array of boxes for your Vancouver move. Here’s a rundown of what we offer:

  • 1.5 cubic foot box. This is the smallest box in the range. Compact boxes are best used for heavy items. Examples include books, cans of food, and shoes.
  • 3 cubic foot box. Slightly larger than the 1.5 cubic box, it can also be used to house heavy objects.
  • 4.5 cubic foot box. Medium size. At this level, weight does become an issue. It’s perfect for bulky, but light, items such as bedding.
  • 6 cubic foot box. Our largest box size. Don’t add too much weight, or the box risks splitting when you lift it. It’s great for things like pillows or stuffed animals.
  • Picture or moving boxes. Fairly self-explanatory. These are used for protecting delicate items like mirrors or art during the move. Use packing papers in the corner to add a little extra cushioning.
  • Wardrobe moving boxes. Features a metal bar, so you can hang your clothes.
  • Dish barrel. Ideal for transporting kitchen supplies and other valuables. As one of the strongest boxes on the market, your fragile belongings will be kept safe.

What Other Packing Supplies Are Available?

We don’t just provide the moving boxes. We have a range of other packing supplies available to choose from. Here’s what you can get:

  • Dish inserts. Designed to go inside the dish barrel box. Creating smaller individual cells for your valuable items. For extra security, add some packing paper to each cell.
  • Packing paper. Scrunch this up and put it next to your items. Providing extra cushioning against bumps.
  • Tissue paper. Ideal for delicate items. Adding a little extra padding.
  • Bubble wrap. Has dozens of tiny air bubbles. Protecting valuables from bumps. It’s best to apply after using a layer of tissue paper.
  • Anti-static bubble wrap. The color pink differentiates this from regular bubble wrap. The anti-static wrap is needed for electronics. Regular bubble wrap can build a small static charge, frying sensitive electronic items.
  • Packing tape. Used to seal boxes. Can also be used to keep drawers closed. Just test it on an inconspicuous part of the furniture first. Making sure that you won’t ruin the finish.
  • Resealable plastic bags. Perfect for transporting nuts and bolts from furniture that has been disassembled.
  • Permanent marker. Lastly, don’t forget to label your boxes. Allowing our movers to put them into the right room.
