While they are great containers, there is a limit to the weight they can carry, as well. The only advantage that the regular cardboard boxes have is their price.

As you can see, there are quite a few of them. Matching the right box with the right items is one of the best tips for packing and storage that we can give you. Before you go on a box shopping spree, however, you may want to create an inventory list of your belongings. That way, you will know whether you need more general-purpose plastic storage bins for moving, for example, or a few more mirror boxes. The best way to create an enjoyable relocation experience is to obtain the moving storage bins that will match the items that you are relocating, after all. It will allow you to pack with greater efficiency, cut down on time and energy expenditure, and provide maximum protection for your belongings.
Small plastic storage bins for moving
The first ones that we are going to take a look at are the smallest plastic storage bins for moving.
The smallest of them all, these green storage containers are the size of 1.5 cubic feet. They are perfect for storing small and heavy items that need to be packed separately from the rest. These green storage bins can fit items such as utensils, books, shoes, or canned goods. This size of a moving box is perfect for transporting small electrical appliances, as well.
You will want to always have at least a few of these, as they can help you in the organization process. You will receive the psychological benefits of decluttering as well as making your relocation much easier if you organize and pack small items first. Furthermore, you can even use these green storage containers as added protection and place them inside a larger box! They are there to provide you with more options and better solutions. While you may think that a larger box is always better, that is not necessarily the case. You should always have at least of these bins in your moving arsenal.
Medium-sized moving box
Moving on to the slightly larger boxes, we reach the ones of the medium size. These are your “MVP” boxes, the ones that are going to contain most of your belongings, as they are perfectly sized for general purposes.
Now, we are talking about a moving box that can fit many items at once. It is about 3 feet in size. Mostly, it is used to hold miscellaneous items that are sturdy enough not to need protection for every one of them in particular. On the other hand, they represent an excellent option for grouping your small plastic storage bins for moving. Put them all inside and seal the medium-sized box. It will prove much easier to get a hold of all of your belongings.
Furthermore, if you are using cardboard moving boxes and plan on utilizing storage space after you unpack them, they can be utilized for yet another purpose. Insulation. Cardboard is an excellent material for insulation purposes, after all. You can simply dismantle the boxes after they are not required anymore and still have them protecting your items in a way. We’ve said earlier that plastic storage bins for moving are usually superior but this is another reason why you might want to go with regular cardboard boxes.
You should always obtain a large number of medium-sized containers, as they are going to be suitable for most of your belongings. But they simply can’t deal with some of the larger items, which is why there’s the next category of moving storage bins.
Large moving storage boxes
These can hold quite a lot of items. The only downside to them is the fact that they cannot carry much weight. Therefore, you are most probably going to use them for packing large and fluffy belongings. For example, large moving boxes are perfect for packing pillows, blankets, and similar.
The reasons why you will not be able to pack heavy items in them are two:
- First of all, in case you should opt for cardboard moving boxes, you should know that cardboard will probably not going to be able to hold such heavy items. It may break, and your items may suffer damage. If you absolutely have to pack a few heavier items, you may want to consider large moving storage bins made out of plastic. They will be able to support much more weight than cardboard boxes.
- On the other hand, should you fill up the plastic moving boxes of this size, you will probably not going to be able to move them at all. While you may be able to utilize a dolly or a similar moving tool, stacking them becomes impossible. It is much better to obtain more plastic storage bins for moving than it is to overpack the few that you have. If you are relocating due to work, and have a few of such items, you may want to pick the best relocation package for your move, one that includes heavy item handling. Doing this can save you a lot of trouble down the proverbial road.
If you have the original packaging for your large items, use it
Your large and heavy items will (most of the time) not go inside a box or a bin. You will prepare them in another way and relocate them without a container. Or you may have the original packaging and can utilize that to great effect. The best way of relocating and protecting an item is to utilize a specialized container type, such as the ones that your item came with. These containers are specially designed for long-distance travel, after all, they provide excellent protection. Speaking of specialized containers, you may also want to utilize:
Capital City Bins can provide you with plastic storage bins for moving dishes.
