The pros and cons of online shopping for cardboard boxes

Cardboard boxes for moving can be found on many different websites- some that specialise in moving boxes and others that offer it as an additional product. The larger retailers sell just one or two sizes of box and sell them at a high price- so that are obviously to be avoided. If you buy from a specialist such as us here at Packing Solution who specialise in house moving boxes, then you can rely on our range to be ideal for what you need.

The pros of shopping online with Packing Solution are:

  • Low prices
  • Huge range designed specifically for house movers, not just an additional product
  • Great quality of cardboard
  • Durable boxes
  • Strong boxes
  • Large boxes as well as small
  • Wide variety of shapes to choose from

Cardboard packing boxes for moving house when bought online from other retailers can have their downfalls however. Here at Packing Solution we use the best courier service that it guaranteed to look after your packaging during the delivery process, and we wrap everything in polythene so that it remains waterproof during delivery. Some other retailers online will not do this, and your packaging may get ruined before you have had a chance to use it.

Large boxes for moving house are best when bought online, because they will often not fit in cars, and it can be impractical to carry them around on the high street too, and here at Packing Solution we offer next day delivery for only £4.50, which is very reliable too. Strong cardboard boxes online are easier to find than on the high street, because virtually no shops sell them, and this is why Packing Solution was formed to cater for the demand. All of our boxes are sturdy and strong, and are ideal for house moving. House removal packing boxes that are bought online really are soldat the lowest prices here, because we do not have the overhead costs that retailers on the high street have, and so we are able to pass this benefit onto the customer online in the UK. To cover their costs of having a shop, most physical retailers will try to make this money by offering poor quality packaging at a high price and low sizing which isn t what you need for moving home.

Environmentally friendly packaging for green businesses

When choosing the best cardboard boxes for moving for your house move or office move, there are many different factors to consider, such as price, size, quantity etc. But something that you must consider and think carefully about is making sure you pick environmentally friendly packaging that can be recycled and re used after you have moved, creating wastage would be a catastrophe.

Re usable cardboard boxes

Here at Packing Solution our cardboard packing boxes are:

  • Recyclable
  • Re useable
  • We have contracts with a local recycling company
  • We use environmentally friendly courier services
  • We are based in Glastonbury- the home of green
  • Made from high quality cardboard
  • Made locally, also reducing emissions

Packing cardboard boxes can be re used again and again, for many different things. You can use it as insulation in your home, or you could make things out of them, for example you could make an outfit to look like a robot, or make a play house with them as a few ideas. You can use them for storage purposes too, or you could just flat pack them and put them under your bed until you need them again or ask friends and family if they need them at all as well. Here at Packing Solution we always encourage our customers to do this, because simply throwing them away is a waste that can be avoided.

Packaging accessories and boxes can be sent back to us to recycle for you, or just take them down to your local recycling centre to do it for you if you wish to do this because they are taking up too much room in the home. House removal packing boxes need to be purchased in the most accurate sizing as possible so that the number of boxes you need will be optimum, which will not only save you time and money, but it will reduce wastage of packaging as well- and this is vital. So if you need assistance with this, please phone or email us and a member of our experienced team will be able to advise you on quantity. Alternatively, take a look at our moving packs, which aim to give you some idea of how many you may need and these are discounted too so there are lots of reasons to pick them.

Cardboard Packaging – Cost vs Quality

Boxes for house removal can come in many different shapes and sizes and types; from single walls to double walls, from large to small, and from high priced to low priced, and choosing the right types for you can be a tremendous difficulty. Ultimately the question going through your mind is; are higher prices worth it, is the quality much better?

Cardboard boxes for moving house

When choosing cardboard boxes for packing here at Packing Solution we know that the better quality boxes are worth the slight extra cost involved. The reason that double walled boxes are much superior to single walled boxes are:

  • They are twice and strong
  • They are twice as durable
  • They can hold the heaviest of items in them without breaking
  • They will protect your things in them
  • They are only slightly more costly than single walled boxes
  • They can be re used again and again

Packing cardboard boxes made of single walls are cheaper to begin with, but they might break and may not be strong enough for the task of moving home, and we know this from experience which is why the majority of our range is made up of double walled options. Heavy duty boxes for moving house are therefore worth the money. Another factor which makes boxes more expensive is size. The size of the box will help you to save money in the long run however, because it means less trips to and from the house, and you can fit more in them so they are more practical too. You do not want single and double walled cardboard boxes that are too large however, because this makes them difficult to carry which will cost you time and money in the long run, and they might not fit in the removal van too which you have to consider. All of our boxes in our range here at Packing Solution were designed for house moving purposes, and so the sizes are the most popular and practical for house moving in the UK. In conclusion, generally speaking the higher cost is well worth the trouble, because there is only a slight initial extra charge of a few pounds per box, but it can save you money in other ways when you move home. Take a look at our moving packs too, which are discounted for bulk purchase.

Essential things you need to know about packing boxes

Cardboard boxes for packing are hard to choose between, because there are lots of different types of box and they come in many different sizes and shapes too, and prices as well, so it can be a minefield. Here at Packing Solution our aim is to make your job as easy as possible when choosing the right packing materials for you. Here are some of the most important things that you will need to know when choosing them.

 

Important things about packing

 

  1. They are recyclable, and so are much better choices than plastic containers
  2. They can be flat packed, and so can be transported easily
  3. They are easy to write on in a marker pen, so you can say what is in them
  4. They can be re used for storage purposes, and they last a very long time indeed if you look after them
  5. They can be either single or double walled. The latter being the strongest kind, of course, and so we would always recommend these as the best option for house movers as it will prevent your things from getting broken or damaged
  6. Larger ones can be harder to carry, but can hold more things and can hold your larger items, so swings and roundabouts.
  7. They can be square or rectangular, and so picking the right shape is just a case of measuring your things you are going to put in them.

Packing cardboard boxes are sold here along with other packing accessories, for example bubble wrap in many different sizes, and tape too, which is strong box tape and is ideal for house moving and holding together even the largest of items during a move. House removal cardboard boxes are also available in multi packs, which are designed for specific sized house moves, as well as student move packs too. This can help you choose precisely what you require, without taking too long deciding how many you need, because we know how stressful moving home can be, and we aim to reduce the difficulty out of the equation and make your life easy. Moving boxes are lightweight as well as durable, which makes them easy to carry and so they are ideal when you move home. You will often be required to help the removal company, and so making sure you can lift everything is essential. The boxes will need to fit inside of the removal van too, so bare that in mind when you choose.

How to spot and prepare boxes for house moving

Preparing cardboard boxes for packing- the methods:

prepare boxes for house moving

  • All boxes will arrive flat packed, ready for you to assemble as you choose. This way, they do not take up too much room, and they are easier to deliver in the postal service.
  • You could take the method of putting together one box at a time as you decide what you are going to put in them in each room. This will take up only a small amount of room which can be good, but it can be time consuming.
  • Alternatively you could put all of the boxes together with tape at the beginning, in a kind of production line, and then put things in them as you go. This can be quick, but you need plenty of space to make this work.
  • You need to ensure that you can carry the boxes, to make the job of moving easier, so make sure you don’t get carried away and put too many things in them at a time.

Cardboard house moving boxes will be brown in colour, so that you can write on them using a marker pen to say what is inside of each box before you seal them up with tape. This will make the unpacking process that bit easier for you, and you can put each box in the room that it will end up in eventually as soon as you unload the lorry at the other end. Most reputable removal companies will do the packing part for you, so it will just be a case of directing them to say what goes in where. So it might be easier to write on each box as you put them together to make directions clear for the removal man. Moving boxes are for sale here online at Packing Solution, we are an established retailer of packaging in the UK, and our friendly team can help you with any queries that you may have, so please give us a call.

Examples of how you could reuse house removal packing boxes

 

1.   You could flat pack them until needed
2.   You could use them for storage in your attic or garage for your old things that you no longer need
3.   You could use them to make things out of, for example a play house for your children which they will love, all you need to do is paint them and cut holes out for windows
4 .  You can use them for insulation in your home, by just putting them in the attic
5.   You could make Christmas decorations out of them
6.   You could simply wait and use them again when you move home again
7.  You could offer them to other friends and family who have a use for them
8.   You could offer them to a local business who will have a use for them too
9.   You could give them back to the online retailer who sold them to you to sell on again
10. You could give them to someone homeless for extra comfort

Heavy duty boxes for moving are sure to last a long time, and so recycling them is very important. Make sure you do not just throw them away in a normal bin, always put them in a correct cardboard recycling bin. You can typically find these at a local supermarket. Cardboard is much better than plastic containers, because they can be flat packed and so you can store them away to re use when you choose, where as plastic will take up a lot of room. Cardboard is also much cheaper than plastic, and so will save you a lot of money in the long run, especially if you are moving home this is very important indeed. We hope that you can find everything that you need here at Packing Solution online, and wish you all the best.
