Moving tape is specifically designed with storage and movers in mind. While shipping tape is great for it’s purpose, the extra adhesive is just not necessary and will cause more frustration than benefit. Next time you’re at a packing party, throw some of those facts down. You’ll be the talk of the town… Guaranteed.

How Much Tape is Too Much Tape?

Some would tell you there’s no such thing as too much tape…

Utter nonsense.

A seasoned taper knows that less is best. U-Haul’s moving boxes in particular are designed with this concept in mind. Their extra strength cardboard only requires one strip of tape on top, and one strip of tape on bottom. Now if you’re an aggressive taper you can feel free to get trigger happy with that tape gun… but once you get a bit more experience under your belt, you’ll see the light.
