Moving Supplies FAQ
Can I fit a twin or full mattress into your mattress box?
We sell one size mattress box which fits up to 80”x11”x79”. The smallest adjusted that can be made is 80”x11”x40”. We recommend measuring first to ensure your mattress will fit. If the box is too big, we suggest you purchase a void fill item such as newsprint packing paper or bubble cushion wrap.
Is your bubble cushion wrap perforated?
Yes, all of our bubble is perforated every 12” on the length of the roll.
How well does your packing tape stick?
Our packing tape is a 1.9 mil acrylic carton sealing tape made for sealing the corrugated boxes and will adhere to your box. We suggest a two-strip method in each direction to secure hold.
How do I know what moving blankets I need?
Moving blankets are measured by the dozen. A 65# moving blanket means that it is 5.42 lbs per blanket, when divided by the dozen. Typically, your mover will suggest the weight of the blanket needed. However if you are packing and making your own move, please refer to our blanket uses page: https://www.uboxes.com/moving-supplies/moving-blankets-pads
Are your mattress bags self-sealing?
Our mattress bags are not self-sealing. Once you insert the mattress, you will have to fold some of the plastic over and tape it closed.
What is the mini and large stretch wrap used for?
Our 5” mini stretch wrap with handle is great for wrapping small furniture items such as end tables, tall lamps, legs of chairs and small appliances. Our 20” large stretch wrap is suggested for wrapping larger items such as headboards, mirrors, dressers and appliances.
How thick is your packing paper?
Our newsprint packing paper is made from recycled material, therefore the thickness and color may vary. This is why it is sold by the pound. Our paper is very clean and neat.
How many packing peanuts are in 3.5 cubic feet?
3.5 cubic feet is approximately 22 US dry gallons and is shipped in a thick plastic poly bag via USPS.
Is your foam wrap perforated?
Yes! All of our foam wrap is perforated every 12” on the length of the roll.
What is a clamshell dispenser?
A clam shell tape dispenser is a lightweight, handheld plastic tape dispenser with a jagged edge for tearing. The clamshell is mainly for a one time move, versus our heavy-duty tape dispenser which will last many years.
