Choosing the correct boxes for different objects

There are lots of things to think about when moving house and boxes can often get pushed to the bottom of the list. After all, does it really matter what boxes you put your items in? The answer is: YES!

Please don’t make the mistake of packing your items in any old box in a haphazard way. It is practically guaranteed that this will see you reach your new home with a lot of smashed plates and broken personal items.

Instead, take the time to carefully choose which boxes to use for the objects you are moving. Once you have done this, you’ll need to pack them up carefully to keep them safe.

Here are the various types of boxes you can use when considering a house move:

Standard boxes

These boxes are the ones you will most commonly see when moving. They are square in shape and go from 1.5 cubic feet to 4.5 cubic feet. These are great for your general items such as books or household objects. If you have anything heavy, it’s advised to use the smaller size as they will be far less likely to break under the strain.

Wardrobe box

These specialist boxes are the answer for moving your clothes – especially anything like shirts or dresses that you don’t want to get creased. These boxes are shaped like a wardrobe and have a horizontal hanging bar at the top to hang your clothes on for moving. Not only will these keep them in great condition, but also avoid putting too many folded clothes in the standard boxes which may then split.

Mirror/flatscreen box

No-one wants to be the one to break a mirror or wreck that new 50-inch flatscreen TV! To avoid this when you move, try using a specialist mirror or flatscreen box. These boxes hold the item inside securely in place thanks to their tough internal joints, as well as protecting the face of the product with a screen guard.

Glass boxes

Don’t get worried – these are not boxes made of glass! They are specific boxes that you can use to transport your glassware or crockery sets in. The boxes have partitions inside to help shield and protect the delicate objects within. If you want an alternative way of doing this, you could use the special wine carrier boxes you can get in supermarkets now.
