When it comes to making a move, it’s likely that you have a fair amount of cardboard boxes to execute the move. Your things are in order. You’ve got everything packed nice and neat. Sure, some boxes are overflowing a bit at the brim, but those are usually the ones with clothes, blankets, and other things that won’t get damaged.
But what about your dishes, your pictures, or your lamps? What about the fragile, awkwardly shaped items that don’t necessarily just “fit” right in to any box? You’ve probably got a few lamps standing or laying in your back seat, your picture frames stacked in a box with some blankets around them, and your dishes are wrapped individually in newspaper.
But here’s the thing: that’s all unwieldy, time consuming, and still doesn’t guarantee protection. You want the ease of packing as all your other items and protection for those things more delicate than others, right? We’ve got a few options of cheap moving boxes for you when making the move.
Didn’t know this was a thing, did you? These boxes are still corrugated but have a partition kit within them to keep your dishes separate from one another and also provide layered protection. They’re about as good as you can get for your dishes when it comes to moving.
Picture frame boxes.
While you may not need one of these for every single picture frame you have, these are amazing for the ones you cherish, such as antique frames/photos or even expensive artwork. They’re thin boxes that typically come in three different sizes as to fit various picture sizes, and their protection is unmatched.
These boxes are great for the awkwardness of lamps. They usually come wide enough to accomodate for your lamp’s shade, too, so you don’t have to worry about packing the shade separately. Of course, these come in a variety of sizes as well to fit smaller or bigger lamp shades.
