How to work out how many cardboard boxes for moving house that you need

  • You could take the method of simply counting up the number of items in each room that you wish to move, and measure them, and then pick the right exact number of boxes that is best for you in the precise sizes that you require. This is an accurate way to do things, however it can be time consuming, especially if you have a large home with a big move.
  • You could pick one of our pre made moving packs, which are designed for specific sized house moves as well as student moves too, and these will save you both time and money too, as they are discounted heavily.
  • You could pick a popular sized box, and buy 10/20 of them and hope that it works, and simply top up if you need more. We have no minimum orders, so you can order as little or many as you need with speedy next day delivery on offer.
  • You can phone our friendly team, who will be more than happy to help you in choosing the right boxes for your purpose, as we have lots of experience in this market.
  • You could take the guestimate approach, and pick ten boxes for each room in the home, which should do the trick. Along with tape and bubble wrap, there isn’t much more you should require.

Cardboard boxes for moving are generally speaking, best with double walls, because they are much stronger and more durable and will not break. They will last a long time too, and so you could re use them for many other purposes once you have finished moving. Always remember to recycle your house moving boxes because they are all one hundred percent recyclable, and this will help to look after the environment. If there is anything else that you need to know, please phone Packing Solution or visit our website at www.packingsolution.co.uk and we are more than happy to help you. We wish you all the best with your house move.

How to spot and prepare boxes for house moving

Choosing the right cardboard packing boxes for your house move can be a challenge. There are lots to choose from here online with Packing Solution, and our range is one of the largest around.

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.

Best Packaging Tape for moving

The contents that you pack are not secure, until they are closed inside a box which is sealed with the right packing tape. A strong and effective packing tape will be easy-to-use and will help complete sealing in no time at all.

clear tape for packing

Tips on what to check before buying Packing Tape:

When you use the right packing tape, you can be rest assured that the contents inside will not spill out or be lost while in transit. With so many types of packing tapes available in the market how do you find the best packing tape for moving? Here are some tips on this:

*Look for tapes with hot melt adhesive because they will not break off when the package is moved from one place to another. This will keep all your contents inside secure. These tapes are also the perfect means of holding together two or more boxes.
*If the boxes are small to mediums sized and lightweight, tapes which are two inches in width are the best option. Boxes that are shipped are usually sealed with 2 inch tape. If the box is large it is best to go in for a 3 inch tape.
*In case of lightweight boxes tapes with a 1.6 mil thickness is enough. For packages weighing between 10 lb to 20 lb, it is best to go in for a 1.9 mil tape. If the package is heavier than 20 lb, you will need a 3.0 mil tape.

Buy Packaging Tapes

*Most people go in for clear packaging tape because it is economical. You can also opt for the brown, opaque tapes.
*Always go in for branded products because they are high quality and worth the money spent. Poor quality tapes will lack adhesive strength and will come off quickly. All the effort put into packing will be lost. You have to spend money again in getting packing tapes, so avoid such problems by opting for well-known packing tape brands.

Look into these points when you buy packing tapes and you will easily find the right one. When you put a lot of items into a house removal box, the right packing tape will ensure that the items remain inside the box, even if the road to the destination is a bit rough. Order online and you can have the item quickly shipped to your location.
