Two factors play into whether a packed box will hold up during a move: material and method. On the material side, seek out task-worthy boxes and avoid the budget-route temptation (such as picking up beat-up empties from your local grocer, department store or liquor shop). Invest in sturdy, good-quality boxes able to withstand transport trauma. Corrugated cardboard offers superior stability with its triple-layered construction: Two smooth outer layers surround a single ridged inner layer.
