    Default Any tips on where to buy packing cartons?

    Moving house in a few weeks time. Need packing boxes. Anyone knows where I can buy some, as well as other things like big rolls of bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts?

    I would think the Post Office should have a good selection...

    you can try to ring up those professional movers. for they rent out cartons on a per-unit charge. also, lots of used newspaper would be a good alternative to bubble packs

    Your movers should provide those boxes for free...

    Packing and moving is a stressful job but with better planning you can make it less stressful.I think if you afford it is better to hire professional movers. I am giving you some tips for a better move

    The first thing is to obviously make a game plan
    1) Pack one room at a time. This will help you when it comes time to unpack.
    2) Start packing for your move well in advance. Lighten your load by packing a couple of cartons a day.
    3) Mark all boxes, designating room and box number. Make a carton identification log to show
    4)Use plenty of "filling" material to prevent breakage
    For other useful tips you can check my source site

    you can also find some good packing tips on Box site.
