We stock a range of different size self storage boxes and different types of moving boxes for storing particular items. Small boxes are good for smaller heavier items such as books. Medium boxes can hold various items like lamps or kitchen pots. Large boxes are best for light items such as blankets or clothes so they don’t become too heavy. Other types of storage boxes include mirror boxes for safe storage of mirrors, picture frames or glass tabletops. Wine boxes and port a robe boxes can help your packing as well.

How many boxes you need to move varies greatly depending on the number of rooms and just how much is in them. As a general rule, you’re going to want about 5-10 small or medium boxes, and 3-5 large storage boxes for each room.

Choosing the right boxes and watching what you put in them is important. Each box shouldn’t weigh more than 20 kilograms. Remember, you’ll need to be able to move the boxes around even if you’ve hired removalists! Here’s some more moving house packing tips
