Cardboard boxes are so strongly associated with moving that people automatically think of them when their home move comes up. Luckily, there’s a better way to make your move quicker, easier and even more environmentally friendly: plastic moving boxes.
Regular cardboard boxes have some important drawbacks compared to modern plastic boxes. Firstly, they have limits as to how high they can be stacked. Overestimating their strength can lead to the ones on the bottom being crushed. Another real issue with cardboard is that it can’t handle water. If it starts to pour rain as the moving van is being packed or unpacked, the boxes can get wet and weak.
As plastic moving crates grow in popularity for moves, it becomes obvious why people like them. Good-quality plastic moving boxes typically hold more weight than similar size cardboard ones. This makes it so that you can stack them higher without worries. Plastic boxes are waterproof, and they don’t degrade.
Using plastic boxes to move instead of cardboard boxes has numerous advantages and could make your move much easier. To get a quote for your move, just give us a call or fill out the form on our site.
