St. Louis Packing Materials & Moving Supplies

Remember your college days, when “moving” meant piling all your possessions into your trunk and the backseat of your car? And maybe rigging up some temporary system across your backseat for holding your hanging items? Adulthood (or anytime post-college-hood) usually means that moving requires packing your possessions in boxes and renting a moving truck to get them to your next home.

Need moving supplies? We have them!Below is a guide to moving boxes so you can plan your next move a little more carefully than you did in your college days.

  • Small box (17” x 12.5” x 12.5”): This size box is best for books, records, papers, wine, liquor, tools and other small items
  • Medium box (18” x 18” x 16”): Fill this size box with pots and pans, towels, sheets, shoes, games, small pictures, lamp shades, toys, silverware, purses, cooking utensils, stereo components, and other odds and ends that would not fit into a small box
  • Large box (18” x 18” x 24”): The best types of items to go in a large box are cookie sheets, pans, serving trays, games, pictures, blankets, pillows, lamps, lamp shades, and other larger items or large groups of light items
  • Dish pack box (18” x 18” x 27.5”): A dish pack box is a box that is reinforced with another layer of cardboard and fits your dishes, plates, bowls, saucers, glasses, fragile figurines and knickknacks; even though the box is reinforced you should use tissue paper and/or bubble wrap to wrap individual items so they are less likely to break, dish pack inserts are also available
  • Wardrobe box (21” x 20” x 47”): This box is an upgrade from that temporary system you may have rigged up across the backseat of your car in college – it’s good for clothes on hangers, suits, dresses, formal wear, and long coats, along with shoes and other small, light items
  • Picture/mirror box (30” x 40” or 40” x 60”): For pictures or mirrors
  • Flat panel television kits: For flat-screen TVs
