  • 5 Large Boxes (30 x 18 x 18): For lightweight and hard to pack items such as plastic kitchen ware, dish racks, small appliances, baking tins.
  • 10 Medium Boxes (30 x 18 x 12): For heavier items such as small appliances, pantry items, pots and pans, silverware, contents of drawers, cookbooks.
  • 3 Heavy Duty Boxes (30x 20 x 20): These have thick, double-walls, perfect for packing fragile, such as plates, glasses, stem ware, wine and canisters.
  • Unprinted Newswrap: To pack fragile, including food items, small appliances. Purchase a 4-5 lbs bundle.
  • Bubblewrap: Purchase a 36 ft roll or if it saves money, purchase additional amounts. You’ll need it to pack other rooms.
  • 5-10 boxes with dividers (18 x 18): dividers are extremely useful for packing glasses, stemware, wine and liquor bottles. I’ve also used them to pack figurines, vases and canisters. Check the sizes of your dividers to ensure they’ll fit into the boxes you have.
