In our opinion, U-Haul is the best dish box option for the budget minded—whether you are renting a moving truck from the company or borrowing your buddy’s pickup.
The medium box from U-Haul is well constructed, holds up to 65 pounds, and has handles for easy lifting and transport.
What really set U-Haul’s boxes apart in our research, however, is the wealth of knowledge and experience that they come with. You could buy your moving supplies online or at your local hardware store, but you probably won’t get the chance to talk to someone with years of experience and dozens of moves under their belt in either of those venues.
We recommend protecting your plates and platters with U-haul’s acid-free, ink-free newsprint packing paper.
