  • Moving Boxes

Cardboard boxes of different sizes are essential when you're moving to the North Island suburbs from Auckland. You're going to have a lot of possessions at home that need to be shifted, and cardboard boxes are sturdy, affordable, and efficient options for making this move. These may be standard or specialty boxes, depending on what needs to be packed. The number of boxes you will require varies based on how big your house is, how many of your possessions need to be packed, and how far you will need to transport them. Henderson Movers makes this a smooth and easy process for you.

Standard Packing Boxes

  • Small packing boxes – these are required for packing books, tools, and several of your fragile possessions such as souvenirs and glassware.
  • Medium-sized boxes – small appliances, clothes, electronics, and toys can be packed into such boxes.
  • Large boxes – these are ideal for packing bedding, lightweight pieces, and curtains.

Specialty Boxes

Such boxes are designed for special purposes and come in handy when standard boxes don't meet your needs. Such boxes can easily be made available through Movers Auckland.
