Why Grocery Store Boxes Aren't the Right Choice for Moving

When it comes to moving, the packing process can be the most time-consuming and stressful part. However, knowing the best ways to pack up your belongings can help streamline the process. Are you moving into a new home or planning to keep some of your belongings in a storage unit? If so, then you may be thinking about using grocery store boxes to pack your things.

First, it’s important to realize that grocery store boxes are designed to ship food and produce and then be discarded and were not made with the intention of safely transporting your personal items in a moving truck. Boxes that are manufactured for moving, however, offer greater durability, protection, and quality. Also, shipping boxes are clean, have standard sizes, and come in options made specifically for transporting things like picture frames, books, and dishware. For these reasons, grocery store boxes are not ideal for moving.
