Moving your life from one location to another takes a lot of organization and work, so the more organized you can be, the smoother your move will go. One major challenge faced by people when moving is ensuring there are enough moving boxes to go around. In the rest of this article, we will give you the information you need to make the best choice in moving boxes.
Choosing the best supplier will mean you take a variety of considerations into account, such as price, quality, material, size of boxes, as well as the boxes’ environmental impact.
There are quite a few moving box suppliers to consider, and it’s not always clear about which one is the best choice. We can help you get the best quality boxes for your money.
**Storage Facilities –**Many storage facilities such as Big Yellow supply moving boxes directly to their customers for a price. However, while they are readily available, they can be expensive compared to other options and are not always the best quality. You will be relying on these boxes to keep your valuables in good condition, so we suggest you look elsewhere for sturdier options.
Amazon – You can order your moving boxes from Amazon, and you have a wide range of options, styles, and sizes. However, many people are not aware of how many boxes they will need and often order too many or not enough.
**Moving Company –**Your moving company will be able to supply you with the best boxes at the lowest prices. Plus, you can always be sure you will have precisely the right amount.
Moving companies have bulk purchasing power when buying directly from the manufacturer, which means they can pass the savings on to you. When you trust your moving company to supply your boxes, it’s one less hassle you need to tackle during the move.
You should never rely on your supermarket to supply your moving boxes. Sure, they are a free option, but the boxes are not sturdy enough to keep your valuables safe. They will also come in a wide variety of different shapes and sizes. This consideration is important because having too many boxes of various dimensions means they are a lot more challenging to load into the back of a truck efficiently.
Double-wall sided boxes will always be the best choice. They can take the weight of boxes loaded on top, and stack neatly inside the confined space of a moving truck or van. A few different sizes will help control the weight of each box. For instance, books will go into smaller boxes, while shoes, clothes, and lighter items will go into larger boxes.
Using different sized boxes makes it easy to keep each box under 20 kilos in weight. Movers are tough, fit, and agile, but they will break under the strain of too many overweight boxes.
When you use your moving company as your supplier for moving boxes, you are also choosing a more environmentally friendly option. Boxes are sorted, and the bad ones are responsibly disposed of by separating and recycling the plastic. Used boxes are offered to clients as a discount option to ensure they get reused.
