Tips for Taping Moving Boxes

When you are getting ready to move to a new house or bring your things to a storage unit in Santa Cruz, CA, you will need a few essential materials. Pick up a few sturdy boxes and some strong moving tape so you can keep your belongings safe when you transport them. View this video for some tips for taping moving boxes.

It’s crucial to secure the bottom of your moving boxes so their contents won’t fall through and drop to the ground. You can start by folding in the flaps. Then, using a tape dispenser, tape along the seam where the flaps meet in the middle. The next step is to tape an X across the box, from corner to corner. Finally, add two more pieces of tape running perpendicular to the first strip. For the top, just use one piece of tape across the middle and then two pieces going perpendicular.
