Where have the removal boxes gone?

For many years people moving themselves could find cardboard boxes at a number of places most commonly supermarkets. Due to environmental  legislation these companies need to be seen to re-cycle more and as a result do not have as many cardboard boxes available for people to collect. This subject is explained in depth by  in their recent blog "should you pay for removal boxes? "
There are many box providers in the UK today and a large number of these are self storage sites. In their blog post mention that a typical medium box can cost anything between £2.90 and £4.34, quite a price variation. Our boxes in comparison are £2.75 for a med box and as low as £2.39 if you buy 10 or more, furthermore they are boxes that are used in the removals industry and are extremely strong. It is worth asking if the boxes you are thinking of buying on line or from a self store site are single or double walled, and if they are double walled if they are strong. Our boxes can be used more than once as they are so robust. 
We sell a wide range of packing materials from our shop next to Billericay Railway station or you can buy direct from our on line store Essex Removal Boxes as long as the delivery address is in Essex.

See our shop prices below and our online prices (Which has some special offers for void fill and wardrobe cartons)

All these products are used in the removals industry and therefore will be all you need. It is worth mentioning that a professional removal company will supply all the packing materials you need and this is an important factor to consider when you are thinking whether to move yourself or not. There are many other problems with moving yourself and they are outlined in great detail  in chapter 10 of our moving report - "The Top Ten Removal & Storage Disasters to Avoid" and would be worth looking at if you are undecided wether to move yourself or employ a professional. Follow this link to see the chapter "if nothing else remember this one!
The trend for increased cardboard prices and availability will continue and the desire to find a solution to meet peoples budget will remain. This is one reason why a professional removal company that is accredited would be the best option when moving house, if you decide you want to move yourself then at least make sure that the boxes you buy are as strong as possible.
