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.

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.
