VMA's #MovingTipMonday - 1/18/16

Veterans Moving America's #MovingTipMonday

Welcome to Veterans Moving America's #MovingTipMonday!  We know that moving is a stressful time for everyone and that moving can be complicated.  That's why we've decided to try and help by providing our readers with moving tips every Monday!  Subscribe to our blog to get notified whenever we post a new tip!


Today's Tip:

Use the right size box for the right items to avoid damage and minimize heavy lifting.


It may seem like common sense to some, but you would be surprised how many times we see large boxes labeled "Fragile!! Very Heavy!!!"  The challenge with boxes like these is that ,1) if it's full of fragile contents, it should go on top of other things to keep it from being crushed; and 2) if it's heavy it can't go on top because it will crush whatever is underneath it.  You can use this post as a reference whenever packing to make sure you know how to use the right size box for your possessions:

Small Boxes - 1.5 Cubit Feet or Less
