Use bubble wrap to relieve exam stress

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Are you stressed about end of term exams?

Get yourself some bubble wrap from Big Brown Box to pop away your anxieties.

The University of Leicester students’ union have announced plans to introduce anxiety relieving activities including popping bubble wrap for students who are stressed about upcoming exams.

Michael Rubin, president elect of the students’ union, said ‘we know how stressful exams can be, and supporting students when it comes to mental wellbeing is a top priority for the students’ union’. Therefore, the union is planning ‘bubble wrap stations’ where students can relax and pop their stresses away.

The university students claim that popping bubble wrap is a better form of relaxation than traditional relaxants such as meditation or yoga.

It’s not just students in Leicester that can relieve their anxieties by popping bubble wrap. If you’re a stressed-out student elsewhere in the UK, don’t fret, Big Brown Box can help you!

We stock a range of bubble wrap that comes in lengths of 10 metres (only £3.25!) or we have 100 metre rolls available for those of you who need serious relaxation! You can even choose whether you’d prefer to pop small bubbles or large bubbles!

With our next day delivery service in the UK, you won’t have to wait long for your stress busting bubble wrap!

The best way of packing and moving paperwork

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Looking for boxes for storing, packing and moving  paperwork?

You need to get yourself some strong archive storage boxes from Big Brown Box!

Archive boxes are ideal for storage use in offices, lofts and garages and are also exceptionally handy if you’re moving home or office.

The strong archive boxes are made from sturdy corrugated board so they can hold up to 12kg of your most important files, folders and documents. The boxes can comfortably hold 7 lever arch files or 4 A4 box files when moving paperwork.

Each archive storage box also comes with a lift off lid which means that your files are not only protected from dust and grime, but the boxes can also be stacked on top of each other to maximise space in your office or storage unit.

Finding your documents in the archivers should also be easy for you. Each archive box has a printed contents graph on the side which allows you to document the contents of each box and there are cut out handles which means the boxes can be lifted and moved easily.

What’s more, assembling your archive boxes couldn’t be easier. There is no need for packing tape as the boxes unfold and slide into place. (We will be producing a handy guide on how to assemble the boxes soon!)

What’s The Best TV Packing Box For Moving House?

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Moving house and need a TV packing box?

Moving house is stressful enough without having to worry to about your most valuable possessions such as your flat screen being damaged when in transit. So, to help you relieve the stress, we have put together our top tips on how to safely pack your flat screen television for moving.

Ideally, you kept the original packaging when you purchased the TV. If you have, you’ll have everything you need to secure the TV.

Don’t have the original packaging? Don’t fret – Big Brown Box have the solution for you!

The first thing to do when packing up your television is to secure the remote control to the back of the TV with tape. Small items can often be lost in boxes so it is important to keep the remote together with the television.

To protect the delicate flat screen, we’d recommend you use foam wrap. Foam wrap is great as it protects against scuffs and scratches whilst its structure allows it to absorb any knocks received when in transit. The foam wrap can easily be secured to your TV using tape.

What TV packing box should you use to pack your TV?

Big Brown Box stock a range of strong, heavy duty double walled slim depth television packing boxes that are perfect for packing flat screen TVs. These boxes allow your television to slide in easily and have enough space to accommodate the foam wrap packing as well as some additional packing to further protect your TV, preventing it from moving inside the box. The box should then be sealed shut with packing tape and we’d always recommend using some fragile packing tape to alert movers to take extra care with that box!

Remember to always keep the television packing box in an upright position and ideally (if space allows) nothing should be packed on top of the box containing your TV.

There are 3 television boxes to choose from depending on the size of your TV.
