Protect Your Possessions with Special Cartons and Boxes

Book cartons

(1.5 cu. ft.) are small, easy to handle, and designed for heavy items like books, CD's, and DVD's. If you are packing yourself, be sure not to overload the carton, as it may become too heavy for handling. Also be sure to individually wrap any very old or valuable books.

Medium cartons

(3 cu. ft.) have a wide range of uses for smaller items throughout your home. This size box is ideal for small appliances, tools, and non-perishable food or clothing. Packing similar items together will make unpacking easier.

Large cartons

(4.5 cu. ft. to 6.5 cu. ft.) are very useful for packing lightweight, bulky items such as pillows, linens and large toys.


are especially sturdy cartons for fragile items such as china, glassware, figurines and sculptures. These cartons are reinforced with cellular inserts to further protect items such as crystal stemware. Each carton should be labeled “Fragile-This End Up” to avoid damage.

Upright Cartons

are used for lamps, statues and other items that require a special size.

Wardrobe Boxes

are portable closets used to move your clothing from one closet to another. Clothing remains on hangers so that it remains wrinkle-free and clean.

Mirror/Picture Cartons

are specially designed telescoping cartons that fit mirrors, pictures and glass tabletops exactly. Each carton has heavy corrugated braces that reinforce each corner.

Mattress Cartons

TV Boxes
