It’s important to understand the qualities of large, heavy-duty cardboard boxes to know if they’re suitable for your move.
Before moving household or office, work out the items you need to pack and decide what size, type and quantity of boxes you need.
The benefits of larger, stronger boxes
Here are a few of the benefits of large, heavy-duty cardboard boxes for moving:
- large boxes have capacity for bulky items
- large boxes mean fewer moving boxes overall
- fewer boxes can equal lower shipping or moving costs
- heavy-duty boxes give you peace-of-mind
- they’re more weather and pest-proof than thin cardboard boxes
- heavy-duty boxes are more durable and hold heavier items without splitting.
However, be warned, even heavy-duty large boxes aren’t designed to tolerate weights of more than 18 kg.
If the items you want to move are very heavy, pack them individually in smaller heavy-duty boxes.
Alternatively, rent a few Ecoboxes.

Finding heavy-duty cardboard boxes this size can be tricky but Ecobox has you covered.
Plastic moving boxes as an alternative
If you think your items might be too heavy for a cardboard box, reusable plastic moving boxes are the perfect alternative.
Each Ecobox has a 70-litre capacity and is made from durable, hard plastic, so it can manage heavy items without breaking.
Another benefit of Ecoboxes is not having to dispose of cardboard boxes after your move.
Once your move is completed and you’ve unpacked, we’ll come and collect the Ecoboxes from your new location.
Ecoboxes are available to rent on a weekly basis.
