Getting the right stuff for your stuff.
The right boxes and supplies paired with the right packing methods are essential in the success of your move. At Red Carpet Movers we’ve discovered the best items to make your move successful and eco-friendly. Correctly packed, our boxes when paired with our moving supplies are specifically designed to keep your items safe during storage and transport.
Get enough boxes? It’s better to have too many than not enough.
Your belongings, your budget and your time will thank you for spending the extra time in advance determining the amount of boxes you’ll need. Luckily, at Red Carpet Movers when you purchase our boxes you will never run the risk of purchasing too many. We will give you a full refund for any boxes you don’t use. Use the chart below to help you get an idea of how many you may need. (Keep in mind, however, the longer you’ve lived in your home, the more stuff you will have accumulated.)
