5 Reasons You Should Buy New Moving Boxes
If you are looking for a professional moving company in Huntersville NC you need to be very selective about who you choose. Many so-called movers are really nothing more than a truck and a few strong hands ready to load your furniture and items for the journey. What you don’t know is that there is a great deal of difference between movers and the services they provide. Some only make short-distance moves across town or the county, and others will make moves in parts of the state but don’t have the credentials and resources to make interstate deliveries. Additionally, there are moving companies that don’t provide scalable services for packing, have no storage facilities, and don’t offer any supplies for residential and commercial moves. Full-service movers offer a variety of services state and nationwide and are fully licensed, bonded, and insured.
One of North Carolina’s oldest and most experienced moving companies is Tru-Pak Moving Systems serving Huntersville and surrounding communities since 1960. We are also an independent agent for United Van Lines.
As a public service, we offer commentary and advice on our website on a wide range of topics designed to assist anyone in need of a mover or information on the proper steps to complete their own move.
Below are Tru-Pak’s reasons why using old boxes for a DIY move is not a recommended option.
If you are moving your home the task of finding used moving boxes is probably at the top of your moving checklist, just above finding a mover or deciding on moving yourself. You’ve probably already thought about asking friends, co-workers, and grocery store managers for used moving boxes that you can use. You might have even circled parking lots, driven behind big box stores, and maybe staked out dumpsters in hope of finding decent boxes to move your belongings. Whether you were born with this instinct or it was inherited from your parents, we strongly suggest replacing this stressful task of finding old moving boxes with the safe, secure, and enjoyable experience of buying and using new boxes only, for your upcoming move.
Before you attempt to retrieve used boxes, please review the following 5 benefits of using new boxes for your move instead of using old moving boxes.
A reputable moving company knows how important it is to use new moving boxes only. In fact, the best movers carry a full line of boxes & other moving supplies that you can purchase. These companies can help you estimate the amount and size of the boxes you’ll need for a successful move. Some of us will even deliver the boxes to your doorstep especially if we book the move.
Sturdy & Safe Boxes
Moving boxes lose their limited strength with each use. This wear and tear acquired over time makes them unsteady and certainly unsafe for precious possessions. Boxes that allow for a proper seal will ensure your valued possessions are protected during your upcoming residential or possible commercial move.
The Right Size & Strength for the Right Job
Whether you are moving heavy books, fragile dishes, or clothes in wardrobes, you will want to make sure you use a box that’s properly sized and has the correct strength. When you purchase new moving boxes, you need to select the type of moving box based on the contents it will contain. At Tru-Pak Moving we offer a wide range of sizes, strengths, and purposes to ensure the contents you’ll be hauling will be protected properly.
Boxes Made for Moving
Unlike most of the cardboard boxes you will find in dumpsters, moving boxes are specifically designed for the task of moving. New moving boxes close and seal easily, have plenty of room for labeling, and some even have cut-out handles. For added protection, we recommend choosing double-walled moving boxes for heavy lifting. An option you have when purchasing new moving boxes from your local moving company.
No Damage, Stains, Old Labels, or Pests
Used boxes often come with stains, scents, damage caused by some unknown liquid, or even insect eggs. If you purchase moving boxes that are new, you won’t have to wonder if the box is trustworthy, free of scents and stains, has strength, and are secure.
