I would start out with just the basic small medium and large.

Hi Julie,

Kevin is correct. You would want to start with small, medium and larges. The mediums tend to be the better sellers. You may want to offer rolls of tape as well. I would be glad to answer any questions you may.

Wonderful Thank you,
Since you both have been so helpful, may I ask if you have purchased swooper or feather flags from anyone that you could recommend?

small 'book box', medium, large and even wardrobe boxes. Then you can get into the specialized ones-I find that the 'picture boxes' sell well-you can pack a flat screen tv in the larger sizes and numerous pictures/paintings in all of them. Mattress covers are also a good idea for moves-I think U-haul has the best ones b/c have you ever moved a mattress? It's like holding life sized spaghetti-Uhaul mattress covers have handles for ease of moving a mattress. Worth it, let me tell ya.
