my suggestion for moving boxes is to go to an accountant or lawyer friend and ask them to keep their photocopy paper boxes. Alternatively, call up Bankers Hall or one of the other downtown office buildings and ask their management if you could get the photocopy paper boxes before they are recycled one evening.
They are the perfect size so that you do not over fill them and make them too heavy. They are also easily stacked and well put together. Boxes from the liquor store or safeway are often dirty, wet, or reek. they are irregular sizes and become problems when loading or unloading.
We have moved twice in the past 5 years and highly recommend the photocopy paper boxes.
