Need Moving Supplies? Great Movers Has You Covered
Great Movers offers a wide selection of moving boxes and packing supplies for your move. So why use us instead of getting the boxes and supplies yourself? As a moving company, we use only the highest quality supplies for our customers. The boxes and supplies you buy from us are the same ones our NYC movers would use if you asked for our packing service. Everything we use is sturdy and made to withstand handling and transporting. Our boxes in particular are much more durable than the boxes you might get from Amazon as they are specifically meant for moving heavy items.
One of the benefits of buying moving supplies from us instead is that we offer a one-stop shop experience. You can get your moving supplies from us, book a moving service, and even add-on an unpacking service. We’re always ready to provide you with whatever you need including various box sizes and even specialty boxes.
Not sure How Many Boxes You Need?
The amount of boxes you need will vary based on the size of your home as well as how much stuff you plan on moving. While we offer competitive pricing for our boxes, the fewer you need, the more money you save!
One of the best ways to save on moving costs is to reduce how much you bring to your
1.5 16 x 13 x 13 inches
3.0 18 x 16 x 16 inches
24 X 18 X 18 inches
18 x 18 x 16 inches
40 x 4 x 31 inches
UP to 50 inches TV
18 x 21 x 47 inches
5.2 18 x 18 x 28 inches
25 x 27 x 27 inches
3 x 13 x 13 inches
Unnecessary knick knacks
15 X 12 X 15 inches
4 X 12 X 12 inches
After you have whittled down your belongings, you can then start calculating how many boxes you will need. The smaller your home the less boxes you will need. So if you live in a small studio apartment, you probably will only need around either 12 large boxes, 15 medium boxes, or 18 small boxes. Great Movers will supply you with two wardrobe boxes for free when you use our moving services! If you’re not sure how many boxes you will need, call us up and ask one of our customer service representatives.
Frequently Asked Questions
Always ready to lend a hand, our moving tips and FAQ will help make your move day a smooth experience
Our goal is to make things easier for you. Besides helping you get the best packing supplies in NYC, we can also give you some expert advice. While we can’t transform packing from a chore to a fun experience, we can offer some tips to make it easier. Here are some packing tips from our moving crew that helps them pack and move efficiently.
1Buy more materials than you think you need
okay, we’re not just saying that because we sell packing supplies. Moving boxes fill up quickly and you want to avoid overstuffing them. Not only does it make the boxes heavier, it can also reduce the durability of the boxes and lead to tears. This tip also applies to other supplies such as bubble wrap and moving blankets. Paying for these upfront will be cheaper than replacing damaged items.
2Consider using specialty boxes
While the standard boxes are great for almost everything, certain boxes might work better for different items. We offer a range of specialty boxes such as china dish boxes, TV boxes, file boxes, lamp boxes, and more.
3ack your lesser-used items first
It will probably take some time for you to pack everything up even in smaller places. Since you’ll still need basic supplies available while you pack, consider first packing away non-essential items first that you won’t need for the last week in your old home and first week in your new home.
4 Make an inventory of all your items
this way you can keep track of everything during the move and immediately see if a box went missing. At Great Movers we require an inventory list from all our customers so we can both keep track of your items.
5Wrap fragile and sharp items before packing
you can use bubble wrap or go for a more DIY option and use blankets, clothes, towels, etc. The downside of the DIY option is that if something breaks, you’ll have to deal with glass or ceramic pieces in your clothes or sheets.
6Leave your clothes on hangers
It might sound counterintuitive, but sometimes you should sacrifice packing space to make your life easier. So instead of taking all your clothes off the hangers, folding them, and placing them in boxes, either cover them with trash bags or use the wardrobe boxes we provide.
