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. If it is simply boxes that you are after, and you know the precise quantity that you require, just look at the boxes heading at the top menu, and this gives you the size measurements. Add the quantity that you need to your shopping cart. If you are a little less certain, why not take a look at our pre made moving packs, which are designed for specific sized house moves and they are discounted too, so they can be a good option.

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.

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.

Eco-friendly packaging

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.

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.

How to find affordable moving boxes online

Searching for moving boxes online is a great idea, because they are almost impossible to find on the high street today, and you can get much lower prices online too. Not only this, but the practicality of fitting large sized boxes into your car from the shops and carrying them around the high street is hard, because often they will not fit in the car if the size is too large and they are hard to carry too. Having them delivered to your door is therefore a great option for most home owners in the UK, and here at Packing Solution we offer speedy next day delivery on all orders, so you can rely on our service to get them for when you need them most.

Benefits of Eco-Friendly & Reusable Moving Boxes

Here at Packing Solution, our packing boxes for moving are all eco-friendly and reusable, because they are one hundred percent recyclable. We work closely with a local recycling company here in Somerset, and ensure that everything we do looks after the environment as much as we possibly can. All of our boxes are the natural brown colour, and so no artificial elements are added, which makes them that little bit better for recycling.

Re usable cardboard boxes

 

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.

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 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.

 

Your packing guide

 

  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.

5 Steps to take your house move idea from concept to reality

There are many reasons that people decide to move home in the UK. Maybe you have just received a pay rise, and decided that you can now afford a much larger home, and because you need the space for your kids, this makes perfect sense. Perhaps you are fed up of living next door to the neighbour from hell, who makes your life a misery by making noise and partying late into the night on a Monday evening. Maybe you have just found the best house in the world that is your dream home, and you can’t wait to get in there. Either way, deciding to move is the first stage, then there are lots more. Here we offer you 5 steps to take this from concept to reality!

House Moving Boxes

  1. Firstly search around, casually, for a house that you may want to live in, within the area that you wish to move to. Do not rush, because this is the most important stage. You need to find a home that you are one hundred percent confident that you love. You may be moving because you have a new job in a new location, and so moving is a necessity, but don’t use this as an excuse to rush in and buy house moving boxes before you’ve even thought about it properly.
  2. Before you make an offer on the new property, you will need to have a buyer for your old home. Without the money free, you won’t be buying anywhere! You will ideally want to time things well, so that once the property is sold, the new house is ready to move into as well. That is the tricky part, and most people struggle with, so ask the current home owner if they can be a little flexible with timings. Put your old property up for sale online or with a local estate agent, make sure it is very clean and up to date for house viewings, and it shouldn’t take too long because houses are always in popular demand.
  3. Make sure all paper work is signed off before you actually move your belongings into the new home, because more often than not people have to move things out again because things go wrong. Packing boxes for moving house need to hold fire on this one for a little longer if necessary.
  4. Decide whether you are going to use a professional removal company for the house move, or whether you are going to do the job yourself. This will depend on how big the house move is, because a smaller job might be easy to manage, but a larger one certainly won’t. If you move yourself, you may need to hire a van or lorry for the day unless you already have one available. This is fairly cost efficient, and can be borrowed for around £90 per day.
  5. Purchase heavy duty moving boxes and pre organise everything prior to the removal day. This is such a vital step, and will save you a lot of hassle and time when it comes to the move. We can’t stress this step enough! Read more at www.packingsolution.co.uk

large moving boxes must know buying

 

If you need large boxes for moving house:

  • Make sure they are double walled, because this makes them a lot stronger, and the likelihood is that if you need a large box, then the item you are putting in them will be large as well, and so will be heavy, and you will need extra strength else the box will break apart
  • Make sure they are not so large that they become difficult to carry around, because this will make the job a lot harder than it needs to be
  • Make sure they are small enough to fit in the removal van and through the front door of your home, because this is obvious but highly important, and organising things in the removal van correctly will save you a lot of time and effort!

Top 5 tricks to make your House Moving an ease

We know that moving home can be a stressful process, and organising everything can be a real pain. This is why here at Packing Solution we aim to make the process of choosing the right boxes for house moving as simple as possible, because we offer the most popular and very best items for this very purpose, and are therefore very confident that you will be able to find everything that you need. Here are the top 5 tricks to make things easy for you:

Cardboard boxes for packing

  1. Pick the right removal company for the job. This is very important, because you do not want a basic man and van service doing the job for you, because they may do things wrong and be expensive and inefficient, which you do not want and this is the last thing that you need. So choose a professional service to get the job done, and get your large cardboard boxes for moving house here with us online.
  2. Buy your packing products here at Packing Solution, because you can rely on our speedy delivery service and the quality of our products to do the job perfectly for you, and our website is very easy to use and navigate around, so please contact us if you have any questions.

  3. Organise everything and write everything down and where everything goes and into which box you put things in, so this will ensure that nothing gets lost, because this happens a lot and will cause you even more trouble on the day of the move.

  4. Make sure your friends and family can come to help you out on the day, because carrying all of the packing boxes for moving can be difficult and you will need a helping hand when the day comes around, so pick a date that will suit everyone and it will save you a lot of time and effort.
  5. Pick out accessories that we have to offer as well as the house removal packing boxes which will help to prevent damage of your belongings, for example we offer bubble wrap which you can put around your things to ensure that knocks will not break things in the removal van and you can therefore drive quicker.

Heavy duty boxes for moving will in general help you to carry lots of things at once.
