From tips on how to prepare your house for a move, to hints on decorating your new place, the web will offer you all of its riches at the click of a button, so here is our guide to a less obvious part of the move; how to find quality storage boxes by searching the net!
The first port of call is to find out how much you need to spend. Google ‘removals boxes’ and see what kind of prices come up. A place like eBay does sell new boxes, and often at discounted rates, so do check out those places for interesting deals. When you have a good idea as to roughly how much you should be spending per box, you can start to bargain hunt! Working out how many boxes you need before you buy is an obvious thing to get right, but it will define what kinds of discounts you can get. Some places may offer boxes for two pounds per box, while some places may offer fifty boxes for seventy pounds, which is obviously a decent reduction, but completely redundant if you only need ten boxes! Getting to know these things will give you a good knowledge of the numbers needed and the prices available when you move on to the next step of your search; second hand bargain hunting!

You can find bargains as well as freebies on these sites, and there will be great variations in quality, quantity and price of the boxes available. If you are looking for the best quality for your money or even the most boxes possible for the smallest price, then you will need time on your side. Starting to search well in advance will allow you to be picky and not rush the process. Using your knowledge of what you can buy brand new, you can assess the best bargains, which will usually be for unused but unwanted boxes that are taking up space and need to be handed on. Make sure you jump on these sorts of deals as soon as you see them, as they will often be taken very quickly by other eagle eyed internet shoppers! it is worth noting that there are few instances of unused boxes being given away for free however, so you sometimes need to choose which is most important to you; economy or quality. With brand new boxes you buy peace of mind and reliability. You know that the structure of the box will give it strength against other items falling on it, as that there will be no faults in the corners or edges that may leave your items in a heap on the floor. However, you may well baulk at the idea of paying two quid for a simple cardboard box, and if this is the case, then often second hand boxes are good to go if you pack and protect them carefully enough, so, ardent mover, the choice is yours!
We wish you every bit of luck with the move!
