Movers Warehouse - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Hello Do-it yourself-mover. Beware of cheap boxes. Not all boxes are alike. You as a consumer should be aware of how quality, size and loads will affect your move. You have priceless and valuable possessions inside the boxes you purchase for moving, so make sure those possessions are taken care of. We've provided some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) and answers about moving boxes and moving supplies.

How strong are your boxes and why is box strength important?

MWI's corrugated boxes come in all shapes and sizes for a professional move. We use 32 ECT (Edge Crushed Test) which is more commonly known as the 200 lb burst test. Professional movers use moving boxes that are at least 32 ECT in strength. This rating is standard in the box industry and helps insure your household belongings are protected when moving from one destination to another. Beware of anyone selling week or even slightly used boxes. Used boxes lose their strength after being used and unpacked. Check the bottom of the box and look for a manufacturing seal. This seal will show the boxes true edge crush test. Make sure it reads a minimum of 32 ECT. Larger boxes like kitchen dish packs and wardrobe boxes should have a higher test weight such as 44 or 48 ECT. These boxes require more protection, so they are made thicker and stronger. Just be careful and ask questions before purchasing any moving boxes.

How can you sell your products at such low prices with same day Free delivery?

We are a moving and packing supplies distributor. No middleman. No hidden costs. We buy thousands and thousands of boxes and other packaging supplies over a period of a year so we are able to get great prices direct from the manufactures. We sell to a variety of people and business types, but primarily sell direct to the consumer, the do-it-yourself-mover. Our FREE delivery service along with our box kits can not be matched.

Are your Boxes brand new and high quality?

Yes, MWI only sells brand new boxes that are direct from the manufacture. We don't sell overruns or printing error boxes. MWI offers the highest quality 32 ECT / 200 lb test industry standard boxes to all of our customers. Our boxes even exceed the minimum shipping standards for the USPS, FedEx, UPS and DHL.

We have some used boxes from a dumpster, a grocery store or prior more. Is it ok to use them?

We highly recommend that you NOT use these boxes for moving. Old boxes or boxes from dumpster's and grocery stores are not good for moving. The non-moving boxes do not have the certification seal for moving industry moving standards. The sizes are usually abnormal, odd shaped, and would not work well for moving your personal items. Boxes do get week when reused. Boxes get ruined when they get wet. One of the biggest concerns is the inside of the box. Boxes taken from a dumpster carry bacteria. And over time, the glue holding the seems together become unreliable. MWI does NOT sell used boxes and does NOT recommend them.

How are your boxes and moving supplies delivered?

MWI is a full service distributor. Our boxes and other moving supplies are delivered by our trust staff. We do not use any 3rd party delivery companies other than FedEx. The products that make up our kit boxes are all stored in a in a self-contained kit box. This self contained box acts as a space saver, it's convenient, and they make the delivery and your packing more organized. This large kit box is also a usable box for pictures, mirrors, skate boards, ironing boards and other large or long items up to 49" in length. You can also use this box to pack heavy blankets, books, shoes, and linen. Wardrobes boxes are delivered flat making it easy for you to set up and transfer clothing.

What about the sizes of your boxes?

Size DOES matters when moving. Unlike, online box companies selling boxes to consumers. We sell the same standard moving boxes used by professional movers. Online, companies sell slightly smaller boxes for manageable shipping purposes keeping shipping cost low with Fedex or UPS. Movers Warehouse sells the exact standard boxes used by local storage and moving companies. There really is a difference between a moving box and a standing shipping box that you would use to ship out a product in the mail. Many of our customers are self movers, and our boxes have enough depth and width to pack efficiently. Just remember to fully pack the box and not leave empty space. Empty space or wiggle room creates trouble. Movers Warehouse sells the most popular sizes used by decade old professionals.

Do you have a guarantee policy?

Absolutely! MWI will accept returns on any UNUSED, flat, and dry boxes for a 100% refund. Unused ancillary items such as shrink wrap, bubble wrap, newsprint, tape, and plastic covers can be returned, but are subject to a 25% restock fee.
