Standard Moving Boxes

Picture or mirror moving box: A four-piece box that can come in large or small sizes can be customized by telescoping in and out; use crumpled packing paper in the corners to add cushion and make sure to wrap your mirror or picture with bubble wrap before placing it in the box.

Wardrobe moving boxes: Allows clothes to be transported on hangers; includes a metal bar along top of box to hang clothing.

Book Boxes: Referred to as the small moving box or record box – best used for small heavy objects like books, records, jars of food, utensils & flatware, shoes, etc.

Medium moving box: Known as the lamp or lamp shade box.

Large & extra large moving boxes: Used for lighter objects such as pillows, bedding, and stuffed animals. If you put heavy items in this box it will be difficult to move.

Portland Packing Supplies

Packing paper/plain newsprint: Used to wrap everyday items to prevent scratching; when crunched up it can be used as cushioning.

Tissue paper: Softer than newsprint, used for wrapping very delicate items; also provides cushioning and fills in small spaces when packing fragile figurines and china.

Bubble wrap: Plastic packing material made up of hundreds of tiny “air cushions” or bubbles used to over-wrap small, delicate items after they are wrapped in tissue; also helpful when wrapping fragile items such as lamps and pictures.

Packing paper/plain newsprint: Used to wrap everyday items to prevent scratching; when crunched up it can be used as cushioning.

Pink anti-static bubble wrap: Used to wrap electronics including stereos and computers. It is similar to traditional bubble wrap but does not cause static electricity. If traditional bubble wrap is used to pack these items, a static electric charge could be created, damaging the item.

Packing tape/sealing tape: Plastic tape, 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) to 2 inches (5.08 cm) wide; best for packing, test to see if it ruins finish before taping up drawers and canisters.

Permanent marker: Used to label boxes with contents and destination in new location; mark boxes “fragile” and “this side up” when appropriate.

Resealable plastic bags: Used for rain-proofing or for nuts and bolts as you disassemble items, tape bag to dis-assembled item.
