You can actually use both depending on what items you are going to pack. Boxes can either be plastic boxes, under bed storage boxes or cardboard boxes. Along with these boxes, you will need packing foams or bubble wraps to protect your things. You will also need to use packaging tape to seal the box, as well as a marker pen to mark the box for proper identification. Boxes can be available from local hardware or from supermarkets.
