When you are moving items, you should avoid using old used up boxes for many different reasons. First off, old boxes that have been used tend to be dirty and when you bring those boxes into your home you’ll be bringing in dirt and dust. Used boxes also attract insects and can even cause bacteria to grow inside of them. Finally, used boxes tend to be weak and this can cause your valuable items to fall right through the bottom and potentially break. It’s worth the investment to simply buy a brand new box.
- Old boxes are dirty and dusty and that can cause you to get that dirt and dust all over your home.
- Used boxes aren’t clean and can carry things like bedbugs, moths and bacteria that will be all over your clothes and skin if you pick the box up.
- Used boxes aren’t strong and tend to be flimsy which puts your valuable items at risk of falling through the box and breaking.
“If you’re not lucky, you’ll end up with boxes with oil spots or other stains that can transfer to your home, office, and valuable belongings.”
