There is an old saying about being a "fly on the wall." Imagine yourself as if you were your belongings loaded into your rental vehicle. The truck is bouncing so the furniture is rubbing against each other. There is also a large pot hole coming up. Now the entire load is going to feel the effects. Those plastic containers could split, crack, flex, or break. Now imagine all the items that are above, below, and beside it. Every item around this container will topple or shift. This is the reason why Moving Made Smooth, Inc. strongly suggests against the use of plastic containers.
The truck is now moving toward road construction, one with drops and weird angles in the road. The truck bounces and sways. Any furniture without a moving blanket will be subjected to the friction of all the surrounding items in the truck.
We don't like thinking about what would happen to your furniture without moving blankets so why would you? Moving Made Smooth, Inc. vehemently recommends the use of moving blankets. For more information please take a look at the Packing Supplies page.
