It is always preferred that you use professional Packing Boxes for Moving as they are built specifically for the job, grocery boxes are designed for pallets not free stacking. Removal cartons have been designed by removalists for furniture removals, and are therefore far more resilient and sturdy. There are two primary sizes of removal cartons.

Packing Boxes for Moving
The sizes of Moving Boxes for Packing may slightly vary depending on where they are purchased from and when packing boxes for moving, they should only be packed to a weight not exceeding 25kg. Rule of thumb is if you can carry it our removalists will have no problems. For small weighty items, book boxes should be used and for larger items like linen/clothing/toys etc, standard cartons are suitable. Please ensure that enough paper has been used, to eliminate items from moving during transit as this is generally when damage can occur.
Clean butchers paper should be used for all packing needs. Most removals or storage companies can supply you with the correct material. Newspaper is not so good to use, due to the chance of ink poisoning from printed paper and the use of butcher’s paper eliminates the need for re-washing of items.
There are many varieties of tape that can be used and most tape that is approximately 6 to 8cm wide will be fine. We recommend to tape all seams of the cartons and tape across carton as well.
Port a robes.
If required, port a robes can be purchased or hired. Port a robes are designed for clothing that would usually be hung in a wardrobe etc. To work out Port a robe requirements for your relocation, the general formula is for every lineal metre of hanging space equals one Port a robe.
We can have your required moving boxes delivered to your address by our Brisbane Removalists or Sydney Removalists or Melbourne Removalists prior to the collection of your furniture removals so that you can start the packing well in advance.
