Quality storage boxes and packing materials for students

It's easy to underestimate how many possessions you can acquire during university life. To ensure all your belongings, such as textbooks, ornaments, mementoes, and clothes, are securely stored, we've designed our durable boxes from double-walled, chemically-hardened cardboard.

Our storage boxes are available in Large and Standard sizes (see underneath for their dimensions). We suggest overordering, as we can collect any spares for free if they're unused. There are also specially-shaped containers made from the same robust materials for larger items, such as guitars and surfboards. 

You can use your own storage containers, but please avoid laundry bags, plastic crates, used food boxes and bin liners, as they break easily, potentially damaging the rest of your items.
