Cardboard Boxes Belfast Tips to help when Packing Your Cardboard Boxes:
Start by writing a priority packing list
Make sure you sort your items and have a good clear out of stuff you don’t require. Often a good idea is to drop some of these items to your local charity shop.
It is important to properly calculate the number of boxes you will require plus the actual size of boxes you will need , don’t forget associated items such as tape, bubble wrap, and furniture covers and wrapping paper.
It is very important not to overfill the larger boxes as they will be too heavy to carry. Equally important is to use double walled corrugated cardboard boxes which are much stronger and can be re used

Make a priority packing list
Take some time to sift through your belongings and have a clear-out. You can make up a box for charity and if you’ve time, hold a car boot sale or log onto an online auction, then put the proceeds of your sold goods towards some re-decorating or a new carpet.
Calculate how many boxes you will need and get these well in advance. Find boxes in a variety of sizes. Think about what else will be useful, such as strong tape, bubble wrap, and self-seal bags for keeping nuts and bolts together. Save old newspapers for lining boxes.
Don’t completely fill large boxes, as they will be too heavy to move.
Use sturdy packing boxes, particularly for heavier items, or your belongings may end up strewn all over the pavement. Boxes made from corrugated cardboard are stronger than regular ones. You can usually find these at supermarkets, off-licences or large retail stores, but make sure that they are clean.
Check that your contents insurance will cover damage and breakages during the move.
Put all hazardous materials, such as paint, bleach and aerosols, into a separate box and keep them away from the rest of your stuff.
Pack an ‘essentials’ box for the first night in your new home and carry it with you. Instant access to coffee, tea, snacks, cups and a kettle may be welcome soon after you arrive. As will plates, utensils and a kitchen cloth. Cardboard boxes Belfast
Prepare an overnight bag for everyone in the family, and make sure that there is enough toilet paper and toiletries for everyone.
Other useful items that should be kept close to hand are a torch, a first-aid kit including pain relievers, pencil and paper, and re-closable plastic bags, along with a small tool kit.
If possible, finish any laundry well before you move to avoid packing damp clothes. Keep a separate box/bag for dirty washing.
Make sure the boxes containing items you need the least are loaded up first. Cardboard boxes Belfast
