If you’ve seen signs for a local U-Haul store location and wondered what they have, take a look at their moving box store and compare to the options available at the U-Pack Box Store.

Look for quality and affordability
If you’re in the process of moving, you may have figured out that costs have a tendency to add up quickly — especially if it’s a long distance move where you have both a move and travel to budget for. It can be tempting to cut corners to reduce costs, and that’s perfectly fine (and encouraged) in most cases. But, when it comes to the boxes and supplies you use to protect and pack your belongings, we always recommend going with quality.

Prevent injuries using moving straps
If you have large pieces of furniture to move, you may be wondering how to handle it. You could hire movers or rent a furniture dolly. However, for furniture that’s big or heavy, the easiest way to move it is by using furniture straps. Our Forearm Forklift straps are heavy-duty nylon straps that use leverage, not strength, to lift items. They help prevent injury by allowing you to bend at the knees when you lift, and by reducing the load up to 66%.

Why use wardrobe boxes for moving?
If you have hanging clothes to move, the easiest and safest way to do that is to use wardrobe boxes. They’re tall boxes with a hanging rod that keep clothes protected from damage. Keep in mind that using the ever-popular “trash bag method” to move your clothes makes them wrinkled, and it’s easy to tear through the bag (and tear your clothes!) without sturdy protection. Using wardrobe boxes for moving also makes it simple to transfer clothing from the closet to the box, and then into the new closet. Let’s figure out how many wardrobe moving boxes you need, how to use wardrobe boxes, and where to order them at a discount.
