Relocation is never an easy task. Whether you are moving your home or office, there are many parts to the process that make difficult. Aside from packing and unpacking, you have to make sure you are organized; otherwise, you mights lose some stuff or forget to pack some things. However, using recyclable corrugated boxes can make the relocation process easier. If you want to know why you should use these boxes and how you can make the moving process easy, keep reading.
Why Use Recycled Corrugated Boxes
Many companies sell special “moving boxes” and sometimes at a premium price. There are some benefits to certain types of boxes, like boxes with cell packaging (which is great for wine glasses and other breakables) or garment boxes) which have a hanger rod so you don’t have to fold and unfold you clothes or risk them getting wrinkled during the move). However, for general packing purposes, like clothes or knickknacks, you should consider recycled corrugated boxes. These boxes can be cheaper than these special moving boxes and can be just as strong or stronger than these boxes and give extra protection.
Another reason to use recyclable corrugated boxes would be because it’s very eco-friendly. Many manufacturers cut down acres of virgin forest to make their boxes, which people usually throw away anyway after they use the boxes. By using recycled boxes, especially made of 100% post-consumer recycled materials, you are doing your part in helping the environment. You can save trees from being cut down and lower carbon emissions from manufacturing new boxes. After you use the boxes, try to reuse them or bring them to the nearest recycling center, as these boxes can still be recycled, which again is good for Mother Earth.
Using Recyclable Corrugated Boxes
Using recyclable corrugated boxes is just like using any type of box. Ideally, you should first evenly distribute your items. While it makes sense to put things together, you may want to rethink about the distribution of items. For example, you want to put your books together in the same box, but try to mix heavy and lighter books in the same box. You can put paperback books with hardbound books in the same box, for example.
Next, you should pack room by room and unpack the same way. One problem many people have with packing and unpacking is that they end up not finishing the job (and scrambling last minute or having half-open boxes months after they leave) because they get distracted or suddenly remember something to do or pack in the other room. Set aside time to pack each room individually. Pack up a room and don’t move on until you finish. Also, don’t forget to label each box. Write down the general contents of the box, as well as which room it belongs in so the movers can put it in the right place.
With these tips, you can properly make use of recyclable corrugated boxes. Using these types of boxes can help make moving easier, but also save the environment and save you some money.
