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.
