Big Box, Big Move: How Large House Moving Boxes Simplify Your Move

Moving house can be a tricky task, with so many different things to organise and worry about. If you have been given a completion date it can seem like a huge weight has been lifted, as it can often take many months, or even years, to get to that date. Searching and finding your dream home, combined with selling your existing home and the huge chains that can fall through along the way. You may have had to repeat this process several times over before you can actually move. Not to mention all the solicitors that you have to deal with, who work at the pace of a snail on a good day.

So now it is time to organise the move itself, which will involve hiring a removal company to help you move, or if you decide to do it yourself, then you will need to hire a lorry or van and round up some helpful friends or family members. The next thing you need to do is find somewhere to buy the packaging materials needed, which will involve large house moving boxes, bubble wrap for protection and strong packing tape too. When it comes to buying packaging, you need to decide which types and sizes of box needed. Generally speaking it is best to use strong double walled cardboard boxes for moving as they will hold a heavier weight inside of them without breaking, plus they will protect the objects you put into them and they are better for stacking on top of one another too.

Large House Moving Boxes

So what are the benefits of using large boxes for moving house?

  • Large boxes can hold more objects inside of them than smaller boxes. This means you can carry more objects in each box and it will make your move go faster. There will be less hassle of having to open and close lots of smaller boxes as you’ll only have to fill each larger size box with more things inside. If you can move faster, it can save you money too, especially if you are hiring a removal company to help you.

  • Big boxes for moving house can hold bigger objects inside of them. They can therefore help you to move almost every object in your home, where as smaller boxes won’t be practical for all of your household belongings. They are therefore more versatile for house moving in general and more reliable too.

  • Although larger boxes are more expensive to buy than smaller boxes, when you work out the price per square inch of space inside of the box, they are actually much cheaper. So if you use lots of larger sized boxes, it can work out to be cheaper than using loads of smaller size boxes. Not to mention the saving on using less tape to secure them all shut.
  • Big boxes will be delivered to you flat packed, so although they are large boxes when folded together, they won’t take up much room while they are flat packed. So you won’t have to worry about the amount of space they take up in storage before you need to use them.

What are the disadvantages of using large boxes moving?

  • The most obvious problem is your ability to carry the boxes when they are full. As larger boxes can hold more objects inside of them, this also means that they can become much heavier to carry. If you have lots of large boxes that are super heavy, it might mean that you cannot transport them quickly enough, or it might take several people to move each box, which is inefficient and tiresome.

  • Large boxes might be too big to fit through doorframes, which will also slow down your house move significantly. It is important that boxes are an ideal size for moving in and out of a house. Furniture will cause enough of a problem, without having to worry about moving large boxes too.

  • As large boxes are much heavier, they will be very heavy when they are stacked on top of one another in the back of the lorry too. This could result in some of the lower boxes getting squashed and breaking under the pressure, which could damage the objects inside of them. You can prevent this from happening by purchasing the strongest heavy duty boxes, and putting the heaviest boxes at the bottom and lighter ones on top. Always put large and heavy furniture at the very bottom below the boxes.
