Moving boxes and packaging materials

High quality packing boxes for removals and storage

If you would like to buy packing boxes and other packaging materials for your removal, Nomad can help.

As professional export packers, we use only the best materials. While you can find cheap boxes online, ours are very high quality, designed to maintain strength and integrity. Not all double-walled boxes are the same – some are stronger than others. All of our products are recommended and sold by the BAR (British Association of Removers), but if you buy them through Nomad you will buy them at a lower price.

You’ll also see below that we use the gold-standard product for wrapping furniture (Jiffy Furnisoft) instead of bubble wrap. This product has a layer of fabric on one side, a layer of strong bubble wrap in the centre and a layer of strong plastic on the outside. It’s the best product available for protecting furniture and large electrical items from rubbing and abrasions. As experts in international relocations we choose the best packing products available, and you can find these below. But don’t worry! We do also sell traditional bubble wrap if you would like it.

Recycled Boxes – An Environmentally Friendly Option

Why not consider good-condition second-hand boxes for your move? We have a stock of used boxes that are still in good condition and would be perfectly suitable for reuse, especially if your removal is not overseas.  Here’s how it works:

Sell Your New Boxes Back To Us

If you’ve purchased boxes from us, we will buy them back from you at 30% of the brand new price.  This means the real cost to you is only 70% of the advertised cost above.

The boxes must be in good condition which means that they are not crushed or damaged, have tape removed and are folded flat. It is OK if they have been drawn on with marker pen.

Buy Second-Hand Boxes From Us

We re-sell these boxes at 60% of the brand new price. This is great for saving money, and even better for the environment. Our stocks fluctuate so availability can vary, but if you are interested in this option just ask!

 

Packing For Your Removal

The way your goods are packed is the single most important factor in determining their condition on arrival at your new home. There is no point buying high quality packing materials and then not packing correctly, because they won’t protect your belongings properly. We have a useful instructional guide with videos on our other website, please go and have a look!

But the basic principles are:

  • With fragile items like glassware and crockery, pack each item individually in paper before packing them into boxes
  • Use a lot of “bounce” (scrunched up paper) for padding below, above and around them
  • Pack them vertically, not horizontally
  • Completely fill every box – use extra “bounce” if necessary – the box must be completely full so that it will not collapse with other boxes on top of it
  • Seal around all edges with tape, so that the box is air-tight

There is a lot more to correct packing of course, and our team of professional export packers are on hand to answer any questions you have.  Alternatively…

Consider Having Nomad Pack For You

Our expert packing services are very cost-effective when you consider that the packing materials are included in the price.Fagile packing

The luxury of a full-packing service not only saves you a lot of time, but it will give you the confidence that everything has been packed properly. For international removals it is important from an insurance point of view too.

Our full packing services are charged at only £1.25 + VAT per cubic foot, including both labour and materials. We will even reduce this price for larger volumes.

If you would like to pack some things yourself and have us pack the rest, this is fine too! We are completely flexible.

 

Crating Services

We also provide bespoke crating services for items that are particularly fragile or valuable. Below are some examples of things we’ve crated, but we’ve built many more crates than this. Examples include an antique barometer crated in a special crate that held it at a 45 degree angle, a £75,000 grand piano, countless works of art, mirrors, sculptures and many more. Occasionally we document the process, as we did with the unique sculpture we sent to the Greek island of Crete. You can see the post and photos on our Facebook page.
