How to Tape Moving Boxes

Storage boxes are a must when it comes to moving to a new home or keeping some of your belongings in a storage unit rental. It is important to fill your boxes to the top in order to keep your items safe and prevent boxes from crushing each other or caving in over time. Start by folding the smaller bottom flaps in and then the larger flaps over them, then tape the large seam that is created. After that, tape the two smaller seams closed and repeat the process on the top of the box. For heavier loads, add reinforcement tape in an “X” shape across the top and bottom.
