Boxes have never been as important as they are when you are moving! The boxes you select are important to minimize any potential damage.

Best practices for selecting your moving boxes are:

Select boxes that are suitable for your items – as the size of the box increases, the weight of each item should decrease.

Make sure they are not packed too heavy – they can break open.
Make sure they are not packed too light – they can crush.

Jason Taylor Moving offers specialized cartons for very specific needs, such as golf club cartons, bicycle cartons, grandfather clock boxes and crates.

The ultimate specialty carton is a crate, which is for extremely fragile pieces, such as marble and glass. These cartons are built to order and need to be ordered prior to your move. Our representative may make recommendations for specialty crates and will take precise measurements so custom crates are constructed specifically for your items.
