Moving Box Measurements Information

Box measurements always correspond to the inner dimensions of the box. This is done to ensure a snug and protective fit around your item(s).

Boxes are measured according to their inside dimensions. That means that if a box is 16” x 12” x 12", you are able to fit an item that is 16" x 12" x 12" inside that box.

Boxes are always measured:

Length x Width x Height (Depth)

Dimensions are expressed in inches.
