You’ve just moved and now you have multiple moving boxes scattered around your home. You don’t want to toss them all away, but also don’t want them living in your garage for years, taking up space. The good news is TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® specialty moving boxes can be reused for many different home projects. Here are just a few!
Day of the Move box/car washing kit
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s Day of the Move Box is perfect for keeping essential items and clothes for the day/night handy during your move. You will be exhausted after the move, and when it’s time to get ready for bed, you won’t want to dig through multiple boxes.
This time of year it’s finally getting nice outside and time to park your car in the driveway and give it a wash. Our Day of the Move Box is great for keeping your car washing items all in one spot. The Day of the Move Box makes it easy to grab your car washing essentials and you don’t have to worry about the cardboard getting wet if you waterproof the box.
Dish Pack Kit/wrapping station
Our Dish Pack Kit is the strongest box available and is ideal for packing fragile items such as china and other kitchen essentials. The cardboard inserts create cubbies that are excellent for keeping the items safe and secure during the move.
After your move, the Dish Pack Kit can easily be reused as a wrapping station. Since the summer months are an ideal time for parties, whether its graduation, baby showers, children’s birthdays, or weddings, make sure you’re organized by creating a wrapping station you can pull out when needed for access to wrapping paper, tape, scissors, and decorative bows and ribbon. This is a perfect way to keep all wrapping essentials in one spot.
Wardrobe Box/storage organizer
The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Wardrobe Box allows clothes to be transported on their hangers by having a metal bar along top of the box to hang clothing.
Recycle your Wardrobe Box and use it to store your out-of-season clothes. A waterproofed wardrobe box is perfect for storing your winter items in the offseason. You can place it in your basement and waterproofing it allows you to be worry-free in case of flooding. You can hang coats, hats, gloves, and scarves and place your boots at the bottom. Seal up the box and they will be safe and waiting for you come next winter.
The Wardrobe Box can also help keep your garage free of clutter this summer. Hang your towels after a day at the pool or running through sprinklers, and baseball gloves or bats after a weekend of baseball tournaments. The box is also handy at keeping your sports balls from rolling under your parked cars. Your kids can just run into the garage and easily grab what they’re looking for.
Truckie’s Treasure Chest
Our Truckie’s Treasure Chest is a unique box designed for kids to pack their own items. The box is easy to carry and can be personalized.
Not only is Truckie’s Treasure Chest useful for keeping kids’ belongings close and safe during the move, but it is also convenient when traveling with pets. You can keep your pet’s necessities in one, easy-to-carry spot. Just place leashes, bowls, treats, and any favorite toys in the box and you’re good to go!
