Moving boxes provide the safest and most suitable way to relocate household items to your new home. However, many people get easily confused about what to put in each box. We are here to offer answers to all your questions.

The packing process is not as easy as it may seem. You first need to understand what type of boxes you’ll need.

Before packing moving boxes, it’s good to know a few valuable things! Read on to discover more.

Identify lighter items

Large boxes are great for packing lighter belongings since you can fit more into them without adding too much weight.

Items like pillows, bedding, stuffed animals, board games, and even clothing are perfect for large boxes because they take up a lot of space but don’t come with extra heft.

Know what to put in a large moving box

Many assume that heavy items go into larger boxes because there is a lot of space. However, this is one of the most common packing mistakes.

Remember, your large boxes need to be lifted and relocated easily, so pack only light items in them.

Here is a list of items you should put inside large moving boxes:

  • blankets
  • bedsheets
  • towels
  • comforters
  • winter clothes
  • large but not heavy kitchen items
  • board games
  • stuffed animals
  • linens
  • lampshades
  • pillows
