i've asked at my local shops and they hardly use boxes anymore so i'm going to have to buy some. If i don't start packing soon i'll never get it done in time......so can anyone recommend somewhere online to get good quality and reasonably priced boxes?
Argos do them- a small pack and a large pack - about £40 I think for 12-ish
My sister recently got some on Freecycle. Worth a try!
I got mine from big yellow storage cohereI thought it was quite pricey for what was essentially cardboard! But they were very sturdy boxes
I am looking into the same issue queenrollo. Argos seem quite expensive compared to others. There is a company online called A1 Box Co, who seem to reasonably priced packs but haven't ordered mine yet so can't vouch for them!
thankyou! i will probably end up free-cycling them after i use them, but haven't had any joy getting some for myself on there. We have lots of books and cd's so i need to make a start.
www.theboxwarehouse.co.uk/ these are very good.
removal companies will give them to you if you are using one
Big Yellow Self Storage do various packs:Small Box: £2.25 per packWidth 355mm; Depth 295mm; Height 365mmMedium Box: £3.25 per packWidth 405mm; Depth 405mm; Height 405mmLarge Box: £4.25 per packWidth 510mm; Depth 510mm; Height 510mmX Large Box: £5.25 per packWidth 615mm; Depth 615mm; Height 828mmWardrobe Box: £10.25 per packWidth 500mm; Depth 450mm; Height 1250mmyou can find a local one or order them their website: www.bigyellow.co.uk
We got these from this ebay seller.
Definitely try freecycle. We have a loft full of the things and I would give them to anyone sufficiently local who wanted them.We got some of those ones from the big yellow storage company and they were OK but not a patch on the Pickfords ones...or ebay. Look for double-walled boxes though for moving. (and lastly, find an independent grocer. Banana boxes and apple boxes still exist - just not for supermarkets)
