Describing the Moving Company's Boxes

When you have to move house, there are a couple of things that can make the move easier or conversely, more difficult.

Specialty boxes:

There are some specialty boxes that actually do make the move easier. One of the main ones is the wardrobe boxes. These are tall boxes with thick cardboard. They have a folding top that has a front flap that comes down so you can get the clothing in to the box easier. There is also a sturdy metal hanger rack that slips down across the width of the box and slides into an opening on each side. These boxes are about four to five feet high and about two feet square. The size difference depends on the manufacturer.

When you make one or two of these wardrobe boxes up, you are looking at them taking up a lot of room.
