Our storage boxes and packing supplies

We provide robust boxes with plenty of room to protect your belonging during overseas journeys and long storage periods. These containers are made from double-walled, chemically-hardened cardboard for maximum durability.

Our most popular storage containers are Large and Standard (see below for dimensions). We also have containers built from the same top-quality materials for bulky items like suitcases, musical instruments and sports equipment.

We suggest ordering more boxes than you need, as we collect unused spares for no extra charge. Of course, you can use your own containers. But please avoid laundry bags, plastic crates, used food boxes and bin liners, as they can break and damage your belongings.
