Moving requires all different sized boxes, and one of these crucial sizes is the small packaging box. Small packaging boxes have a variety of uses, including storing delicate light items such as linen and pillows, and smaller, heavier items such as books and kitchen crockery. Small boxes also help when minimizing the space used within your storage unit, as they can be stacked and positioned better than other packaging boxes. Utilizing small boxes will also be able to save you money, as you can store away your items into a small, more compact unit. Additionally, to saving money, the time expenditure is minimized when using small boxes, as you will be able to pack away your things into a more convenient and manageable packaging box.

What are small boxes best used for?

The uses of small boxes are expansive and go beyond just the generic use of moving houses. Ideally, small boxes help with transporting smaller, heavier items, but they can also be used for delicate items such as cushions and duvets. They become incredibly useful when needing to transport items such as books or kitchen crockery. Luckily, small boxes do not need to become a hassle after your move, or long term storage is over. National Storage buys back all packaging that we deem to be reusable again. Alternatively, if you want to take a more creative response to reusing your small boxes, they can be repurposed for arts and craft projects, or forts for your kids.

What to pack in small boxes? 

When storing away your items and deciding what you need to put away, small boxes can have a use for every room in your house. Small boxes are generally light, store smaller items, and store away easier. So, when packing away your goods, consider what things would fit best. Small boxes ideally are suited items such as kitchen crockery, books, linen, cushions, duvets, and decorative items. They also are fantastic for clothing and shoes, being able to divide your wardrobe into separate small boxes. By placing heavier items at the bottom, you can ensure that it is balanced correctly, and will not collapse in on itself when carrying said small box.

Fortunately, as small boxes are made of cardboard, they are relatively simple to recycle, as well as having plenty of other ways to repurpose them. Small cardboard boxes are an ideal way of covering high traffic areas during your move to keep your floors safe. Welter down the cardboard box to help combat weeds in your garden. Doing this by cutting the small box into strips, placing them on and around the problem areas, then wetting them to keep them in place. This being due to cardboard being compostable, being that they decompose over time.

Can I use small boxes for moving? 

Of course! Small boxes are every usual in moving, and especially storing smaller, heavier items. They are straightforward to carry and are secure and safe when concealed with packing tape. Containing items such as books, kitchen crockery, and other ornamental heavier items, they will prove to be extremely useful in moving. The quality of your items will be a lot higher during the move if your small box is kept down with heavier items, that will keep them balanced and secure.
