    Hottest is definately small boxes.

    My orginal rope from 3.5 years ago, is still sitting on the shelf.

    Hottest item is medium boxes, with moving peanuts being the slowest!

    Hottest moving item --- Queen sized mattress bags

    Slowest mover --- wrapping paper --- have only sold one in 4 years.

    Other top movers are locks, rope, other mattress bags, and of course boxes of all sizes.

    What I have discovered is that what is hot here this month, and I stock up on, will be replaced by some other item next month, that i don't have enough of.

    Same here, ditto! I can sell bubble wrap and boxes, and mattress covers....have not sold one bag of peanuts...can't blame them...those little pests get everywhere...I hate when someone lets them loose on my lot on a windy day

    Well, we lowered our box prices for April and the X-large boxes have been flying out the door. The peanuts and poly rope are slow moving.
