Cardboard Packaging – Cost vs Quality

Boxes for house removal can come in many different shapes, sizes, and types, from single alls to double walls, from large to small, and from high-priced to low-priced. Choosing the suitable types for you can be a tremendous difficulty. Ultimately, the question going through your mind is: are higher prices worth it? Is the quality much better?

When choosing cardboard boxes for packing here at Packing Solution, we know the better quality boxes are worth the slight extra cost. The reasons that double-walled boxes are much superior to single-walled boxes are:

  • They are twice and strong
  • They are twice as durable
  • They can hold the heaviest of items in them without breaking
  • They will protect your things in them
  • They are only slightly more costly than single walled boxes
  • They can be re used again and again

Packing cardboard boxes made of single walls is cheaper but might break. They may not be strong enough for moving home, and we know It from experience, so most of our range comprises double-walled options. Heavy-duty boxes for moving house are therefore worth the money. Another factor that makes boxes more expensive is size. The box size will help you save money in the long run because it means few free trips to and from the house, and you can fit more in them, so they are more practical.  You want manageable single and double-walled cardboard boxes because they are difficult to carry, which will cost you time and money in the long run. It would help if you considered that they might also not fit in the removal van.

All boxes in our range here at Packing Solution were designed for house-moving purposes. Hence, the sizes are the most popular and practical for house moving in the UK. 

If you are looking for some tips on how to package your products with cardboard boxes, here are some suggestions that can help you ensure the safety and quality of your items during delivery:

  1. Choose the right size and shape of the box for your product. You want a manageable space inside the box, which can cause the product to shift and get damaged. You also want to avoid having the product stick out of the box, as It can expose it to external hazards. Ideally, the product should fit snugly inside the box, with enough room for some cushioning material.

  2. Use new, sturdier cardboard boxes and fill them generously with cushioning materials to improve the box’s rigidity. Also, seal the seams with plenty of tape so the items are contained inside, even if the box was accidentally dropped.

  3. Use appropriate labels and information on the box, such as the collection and delivery address, the contents of the box, the weight of the box, and any special instructions or warnings. It will help the carrier handle the box properly and deliver it to the right destination. You can also use creative packaging design ideas to make your box stand out and attract attention.

  4. Weigh the package and measure its dimensions before shipping it. It will help you calculate the shipping cost and avoid surprises or extra fees. You can also compare different shipping options and choose the one that suits your budget and delivery time.

By following these packaging tips, you can ensure that your products reach your customers in the best condition possible and that they are satisfied with your service. Cardboard boxes are a versatile and cost-effective packaging option that can suit a variety of products and purposes. With careful planning and preparation, you can make the most of them and enhance your brand image and reputation.
