What sizes of cardboard boxes are needed?

In order to pack dishes, books and small heavy objects we advise you to use a format of about 1.5 to 2 cubic feet. For cauldrons, pans, children’s toys or even clothes, a box of about 3 cubic feet would certainly be useful. Finally, for pillows, duvets, sheets or any other very light but bulky objects, it is best to use a large box with a volume of about 5 cubic feet. Check the best moving package for you.

How to protect your fragile objects?

For regular dishes, you can use wrapping paper (sold as a package) that has a texture similar to traditional newspaper. This product will allow you to protect your plates, bowls and glasses during transport.

For more fragile objects such as crystal ware, porcelain or frames or mirrors, we encourage you to use biodegradable bubble wrap (certified EPI) sold in rolls that will offer greater protection to your objects.


CAUTION: It is important to make sure there is no free space in your cardboard boxes so objects do not move inside. You can then use wrapping paper, put into balls to fill the gaps created.
