Archive boxes are ideal for archiving paperwork without being too heavy when filled, designed to fit 5 lever arch files or 3 transfer files. Our archive cardboard boxes are made from single walled corrugated cardboard with a removable lid and pre-cut handles. Our archive cardboard boxes are an easy size to carry and stack even when full of heavy items. Stacking high lets you fit more into less space.
When packing cardboard boxes try to avoid filling large boxes with too many heavy items as this makes them difficult to move or store safely.
Need other cardboard boxes?
We recommend you use our standard boxes to pack most of your items and only use larger packing boxes for things that need a bit more space.
Our standard boxes are perfect for packing kitchen cutlery, crockery and glasses. They are a bit small for large plates and pans. For larger kitchen items use our large box.
Our standard cardboard box is ideal for packing books, smaller photos and pictures. DVD’s and CD’s, toys and smaller ornaments will all go in too. For larger picture frames and photo albums use our wide box.
Use standard cardboard boxes for smaller clothes but choose our wide or wardrobe boxes for larger clothes and linens.
When packing, moving, or storing fragile items, keep them safe by wrapping them in bubble wrap or packing paper before placing them in your cardboard box. Seal your boxes with our packing tape or fragile tape.
Archive box dimensions: 15.9” x 11.2” x 13.2” (40.5 x 28.5 x 33.5 cm) giving you 38 litres of storage per box.
Anything over 28.5 cm across will need a bigger box.
Not sure how many you’ll need? You don’t want to run out half way through packing so make sure you get enough. We will refund any you return unused.
