Packing Boxes to Move To Student Accommodation?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Are you packing boxes to go to university or college for the first time?

The summer is drawing to a close and terms are about to begin at universities and colleges across the UK. This is an exciting time for many people who are about to embark on student life for the first time. Before the real fun begins though, you will need to pack up your room at home to move to your student accommodation/flat.

As this is probably the first time you’ve moved out on your own and may not be familiar with the packing process, we have tried to make it much easier for you with our top tips below.

Packing is stressful – make a plan!
Make a list of everything you’re planning to take so you can work out roughly how many boxes and packaging you are likely to need. Order your packing boxes well in advance so you can start packing at least a week before you are due to move. Check out our complete Student Moving Kit for your boxes and packaging.

Clearout the stuff you’re not taking
You’ve probably got a lot of stuff in your room that you aren’t taking with you and you will be able to live without when you’re home for holidays. Use this as the perfect opportunity to declutter and clearout your room. Selling the stuff you don’t want anymore on websites such as eBay or Gumtree can also help you raise some much needed cash for freshers’ week!

Pack an essentials bag
Keep your everyday essentials like toiletries, phone chargers, tea bags and a mug in a separate box/bag so that you can access them easily when you get to your new accommodation. You’ll probably want to just dump the majority of your things in your room and worry about unpacking the day after so it is useful to have essentials packed separately.

Why Label Packing Boxes When Moving House

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Moving into a new house or flat is a time consuming and stressful task. However, being organised and keeping on top of things can help the process greatly.

Big Brown Box recommend you develop a system to label packing boxes which will make unpacking at the other end so much easier.

The simplest and most common way to label packing boxes is with a permanent marker pen and mark the outside of the box with the destination room in your new house. It is also beneficial for you to write the contents on the box so you can locate items quickly and easily. If the box contains a number of different items and it is too much to write all the contents on the outside of the box, you can number the boxes and keep an inventory in a pad to cross reference. Just make sure you don’t lose your pad!

It’s also easier to locate the boxes if you have marked at least three sides of the box. Labelling just one or two sides will not allow you to quickly identify the contents or where the box belongs. Efficient labelling speeds your move and your unpacking time. The sooner you are able to locate your possessions, the sooner you can settle in and enjoy your new home.

At some point during your move, your packing boxes will be exposed to the elements. It is therefore very important to ensure that the ink does not smudge or run in the rain or snow (this is especially important given the British weather!). The best to protect the ink is by covering the ink with a clear tape once the ink is dry on the box.

Although you may not think it as necessary, a marker pen is an essential accessory for moving house or office.

Furniture Covers For Moving

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Furniture covers for moving offer great protection when packing or placing furniture into storage

Polythene furniture covers from Big Brown Box are essential if you’re moving house or placing items into a storage unit. Designed to cover sofas and armchairs, protective furniture covers provide an inexpensive yet safe way to protect expensive items of furniture.

Uses For Furniture Covers

The furniture covers for moving are made from heavy duty polythene which will not rip or tear easily to ensure that your armchairs and sofas are protected from moisture, dirt and dirt when moving house or placing the items into a storage unit. The covers are also ideal for use when decorating as they offer more protection than using dust sheets.

The single armchair covers are also perfect on small items of furniture such as side tables.

How to Fit The Furniture Covers

Before you use the covers, we recommend preparing your sofas/armchairs for maximum protection. Firstly, if your cushions are detachable, you should turn these upside down.

Although the covers are made from heavy duty polythene, it is also important to ensure there are no sharp edges exposed. If the structure of your sofas/armchairs can be seen (e.g. wooden arms or metal legs) then we advise to cover the ends with some bubble wrap to avoid any damage being caused to the cover.

To make it easy for you, the polythene furniture covers for moving are open at one end. This allows you to slide the furniture in. Once your furniture is fully inside the cover, the open end should be sealed securely using packing tape.
