Whether you’re looking to conduct an office move for your business, you’re pre-empting storage and removal plans, or you’re moving house yourself, removal boxes are an essential component for a smooth transition. But with a range of options available, which are the best removal boxes for you?
This guide highlights the difference between using plastic and cardboard removal boxes, and when you should opt for either, as well as the benefits of using cardboard boxes for your packaging requirements.
Plastic vs cardboard removal boxes
When deciding whether to use cardboard or plastic removal boxes, it’s important to acknowledge that both can be valuable, but for different uses:
As plastic boxes are generally stronger and more stable, they should be used for storage situations that require maximum durability and strength, particularly if you anticipate water/liquid as a potential risk.
However, when compared to cardboard boxes, plastic removal boxes can generally be more expensive, and can quickly become quite heavy to carry once loaded. Plus, if you’re looking to rent your plastic boxes, it’s likely you’ll need to return them by a certain date, putting pressure on your removal duration.
Cardboard removal boxes
Cardboard boxes, on the other hand, are especially useful for large scale removals, making it easy and efficient to move things from A to B. Not only are they relatively easy to get hold of, being generally more available than plastic, but they are also easy to dismantle and stack away – making them an efficient space-saver when you’re not using them.
