As a leading, professional  moving and storage company, we stock cartons of just about every shape and size imaginable in addition to the industry standard types of moving boxes and shipping crates Seattle residents typically require

  • 1.5 cubic ft
  • 3.0 cubic ft
  • 4.5 cubic ft
  • Dish pack
  • Wardrobe moving boxes

For your convenience, let’s take a closer look at what you should consider using these standard sizes.

1.5 cubic ft moving boxes Seattle

This is one of the smallest moving boxes Seattle customers typically need. While pretty little by comparison to other options, they play a vital role in packing correctly and protecting your items. Given their size, they are perfect for office moving WA and, in particular, for storing smaller but resilient and heavier items such as books.

3.0 cubic ft moving boxes

The 3.0 cubic ft is one of our mid-sized moving boxes and. With the 3.0 cubic ft of space, you can pack many different things. Still, we would not suggest packing items in this type of moving boxes as they can become very heavy. These are perfect for storing items that are large with regards to space needed but are not necessarily very heavy.

An example would be children’s toys, individual dishes, or larger bowls. Obviously, in the case that you are going to be placing fragile items in this type of moving boxes or any other for your interstate moves from/to Washington, you should make sure to use the correct size and the proper amount of cushioning.

4.5 cubic ft moving boxes

When it comes to packing and transporting large bulky items that require a lot of space but are not overly heavy or delicate, one of the largest moving boxes, the 4.5 cubic ft. moving boxes, is perfect for the task  These are used primarily for transporting large items of moderate weight. Items such as blankets, sheets, pillows that do not require shipping crates Seattle moves to employ for large items susceptible to damage. If you are about to start packing for your residential move rather than hiring Bellevue movers, you should make sure to invest in a sufficient supply of 4.5 cubic ft moving boxes Seattle moves typically require.

Dish pack

Now, in the event where you have a large number of dishes, fine china, and kitchenware that you want to make sure survive the move without any damage, it’s highly suggested you consider packing them in our dish pack cartons. This is one of the safest ways to protect your fragile kitchen items during a move. Fully packed dish packs tend to be quite heavy. Therefore, you should be extra careful when moving day comes. Make sure to carry them with someone’s help to be sure that they arrive in your new home in perfect condition while protecting your back.

Obtaining wardrobe moving boxes

For packing your hanging clothes, you should invest in wardrobe moving boxes. As the name suggests, these moving boxes are specially designed for safely and efficiently packing your items of clothing. Each carton comes equipped with a metal bar onto which you will be able to hang your clothing on their own hangers. Wardrobe boxes can handle a large volume of clothing, protecting it from the elements and even preserving the appearance of previously ironed garments.

For most people, getting settled into our new home as quickly as possible following a do-it-yourself move or after using Edmonds movers is a high priority. Using wardrobe boxes for packing and transporting your clothing allows for an efficient unpacking process – simply transfer the hanging garments directly from the wardrobe box to the new closet!

Professionals can help you move efficiently and within budget limits.

While both options are available to you, we would highly suggest relocating within or out of the State of Washington with help from professional movers. While many people are physically able to move by themselves, ourselves, fact remains that hiring a professional and reliable moving company to help you relocate represents an investment in safety, efficiency, and peace of mind. 

In fact, if you do not have experience in making a move, you could potentially find yourself overwhelmed and unable to complete the move without assistance. While a do-it-yourself move may seem to be a more cost-effective route, once you consider the rental of trucks and equipment plus retail costs for boxes and moving supplies, the overall move cost could be the same or higher than hiring a leading moving company that will help you to prepare well and execute your move on time and on budget.

Hiring professional movers such as Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage can provide you with a trouble-free relocation process. As our services are offered on an a-la-carte basis, you only choose the services you need, your expenses will be kept to a bare minimum.
