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.
