1. Book Carton (1.5 Cu. ft.)— A small, easy to handle carton designed for heavy items such as books and records. Care must be taken so that the box does not become too heavy for handling. Extremely old or valuable books should be individually wrapped.
2. Medium Carton (3 cu. ft.)—This utility box has a wide range of uses for smaller items throughout the home. It is ideal for small appliances, tools, nonperishable food or clothing. Packing similar articles together will make unpacking easier.
3 & 4 Large Cartons (4.5 to 6.5 cu. ft.) — Useful for lighter weight, bulky items such as linens, pillows and large toys.
5. Dishpack — An especially sturdy carton for fragile items including china, glassware, figurines and sculptures. This carton is often reinforced with cellular inserts to further protect such things as crystal stemware. All pieces of china and glassware must be individually wrapped in unprinted paper and properly secured with additional paper padding. Dishes should be positioned on end to lessen the chance for breakage. Each carton should be labeled Fragile This End Up.”
6. Upright Carton — Typically used for lamps, statuary and other items that require a special size.
7. Wardrobe — A portable closet. Clothes remain on hangers to stay free of dirt and minimize wrinkles.
8. Mirror/Picture Cartons — Telescoping cartons fit each mirror, picture or glass table top exactly. Heavy corrugated braces reinforce each corner.
9. Mattress Cartons — Available from crib through king mattress sizes. They protect mattresses and box springs from dirt and tearing, and help provide structural support to avoid bending.
