How To Pack A Box With Different-sized Items

Packing a box can be difficult, especially when the items you are packing are of different sizes. If you don’t fill the box correctly, it may not be able to hold all of your items and could even damage them in transit. In this blog post, we will discuss how to pack a box with different-sized items.

The Key to Packing a Variety of Items

Different-sized items can present a challenge when packing a box. What do the professional packers at Murphy’s have to say about it?


The key is to use a packing hierarchy. First, pack the largest items into the bottom of the box. Then, you will want to fill in the gaps with smaller items that fit within those gaps and the perimeters of the box. Once all of the gaps are filled, you can then add your remaining smaller items on top.

Box Size

When packing a box with different sized items, it is important to pay attention to the size of the box. You will want to make sure that the box is large enough to fit all of your items but not too large that it becomes difficult to move. Additionally, you will want to ensure that the box is strong enough to hold all of your items. If you are unsure about the size or strength of the box, you can always ask a professional for help.

Don’t Overpack

It can be tempting to try to fit as many things as possible into a smaller amount of boxes. But this can lead to broken items, damaged boxes, and a stressful moving day for everyone.
