Large boxes for moving house fit a wide range of things but could get heavy when full. These large cardboard boxes are made from double walled corrugated cardboard, allowing them to be stacked high. Stacking high lets you fit more into less space.
When packing boxes avoid filling large boxes with too many heavy items as this makes them difficult to move or store safely. These double walled cardboard boxes are big, but as a result they could be a difficult size to carry and stack if filled with heavy items.
We recommend using standard boxes to pack most of your items and only use large packing boxes for things that need a bit more space.
Where to use large cardboard boxes
These large boxes are great for larger kitchen items like plates or pans. Use a wide box for large shallow things like oven trays. Standard boxes are perfect for smaller items such as kitchen cutlery, crockery and glasses.
Large boxes are ideal for duvets, pillows, cushions, rugs and other bulky lightweight linen. For clothes use our wide box so you don’t need to fold things too much. Use a wardrobe box to store clothes on a hanging rail with space for shoes and bags in the base.
Bulky things such as desk lamps, lamp shades, toys and games all go well in these boxes.
Try not to fill these large boxes with books or other heavy items. They might get too heavy to move safely. Our standard box is a great cardboard box for packing most books, smaller photos and pictures. Fill wide boxes with larger picture frames, photo albums and large ornaments.
If you’re looking for cardboard boxes for archiving our Archive boxes are specifically designed for document storage.
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.
Wide box dimensions: 18” x 18” x 18” (45 x 45 x 45 cm) giving you 90 litres of storage per box.
Anything over 45 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.
