TIPS ON COLLECTING PACKING SUPPLIES
- Beware of used boxes – people sometimes try to pack their belongings in used boxes to save money. Beware. Produce boxes often become weakened from the moisture of transportation or product spoilage. Additionally, insects often nest in used boxes.
- Use clear Duck® packing tape only– Make sure to seal your boxes with packing tape. Duct tape doesn't adhere well to corrugated cardboard. Boxes put together with duct tape will fall apart.
