Moving boxes Northern Beaches
Removalist boxes, butchers paper, tape, bubble wrap, plastic covers and striped bags for removals and storage
Man and His Van sell boxes and packing materials from the Brookvale Northern Beaches store. Vist our box shop at unit 6 91-93 Old Pittwater Road, Brookvale. There is plenty of parking so drive right in. We have thousands of removalist boxes and often have used boxes too.
When packing your home or office, the best rule of thumb is if it’s too heavy for you to move it is probably too heavy for your removalist. Yes, the men have experience and are getting paid to move heavy things but they also have to do it all day. This is why a good variety of box size is necessary…..
Tea Chest (or Standard Carton)
Length 42cm x width 40cm x height 63cm
Based on the original Indian Tea-Chest size carton but more conveniently manufactured from double cushion, heavy grade cardboard. This is the ideal carton to use for everyday clothes, kitchen appliances, lamp-shades, manchester, children’s toys, bric-a-brac and anything too large for the crystal carton.
$5.50 individually, $5 each for 10 or more and $4 second hand (if available).
Crystal Carton (or book box)
Length 42cm x width 32cm x height 35 cm
Similarly constructed from top quality, dual ply cardboard, this box has been made to deal with anything heavy or fragile in nature. It is the box to choose when packing kitchen crockery, glassware, cutlery and tins of food. From elsewhere in the house, this is the carton to use for books & magazines, files, stationary, ornaments and anything too heavy to pack into the T-Chest.
$4.50 individually, $4 each for 10 or more and $3 second hand (if available).
Length 50cm x width 33cm x height 18cm
This box is a good alternative to wrapping your wine in paper & using the crystal carton. Our purpose made wine box will hold 12 standard 750ml bottles of your favorite red or white cradled snuggly in two cardboard molded cutouts. Probably slightly more expensive than using the crystal carton but without doubt a lot quicker & more convenient on the packing side of things.
$6 each new or $4.50 second hand (prices include the necessary inserts)
Length 60cm x width 50cm x height 114cm. (Do not fit into small cars)
Designed to transport your coats, dresses, suits & business shirts with the minimum of fuss from your old home to the new. Our extra heavy duty porta-robe is the ideal solution to escape expensive visits to the dry-cleaners and unwanted hours in front of the ironing board. Although there are cheaper, inferior products available at alternative packaging suppliers, here at Man & His Van we only stock the very best!
$25 each new or $15 second hand (if available). Ask about our hire charge if we are moving you.
Paper, Tissue & Tape; Three, two, one
We have 3 types of tape, 2 different size bundles of plain paper and 1 ream of tissue paper to choose from. For exceptional value for money our large 15 kilogram ($45) ream of plain white butchers’ paper will cope with the contents of most substantial house kitchens with some left over for the kids to scribble on. Alternatively, our 5 kilo ($20) bundle of paper is more suitable for smaller homes or packing away the unwanted dinner set into storage. We also keep a good supply of tissue paper permanently in stock for fine bone china, figurines and delicate ornaments where butchers paper often causes damage on the unpack.
High quality Italian Vibac tape is $3.50 per roll (clear or tan) while fluoro orange fragile tape is $6 for extra peace of mind.
A great way to keep mattresses, lounges, arm chairs and cushions completely dust and damp free when moving on a rainy day or going into long term storage. Our wide selection of tailor made covers are manufactured to a minimum of 75um heavy duty plastic and strategically open down one side for sofas or on the end for mattresses. If you want to get creative with a pair of scissors, they also work as great dust sheets when decorating. Small $8 and large $12
Bubble Wrap & Bubble Craft
For use on art, vases & the like or when extra cushioning is required (international freight). A lot more time consuming & tricky to deal with, bubble wrap is perfect for glass covered prints compared to paper backed bubble craft which is better suited to oil on canvas. Pre-cut bubble wrap 6m3 sheets are $10 each or if you are require a commercial quantity an entire 100 meter roll (1.5m wide) is $160. Paper backed bubble craft is $3 per meter (1.5m wide) and although always in stock we do appreciate a pre-order phone call.
Striped storage bags: PVC woven tartan laundry bags
The striped storage bags are $4 each and work well for manchester, soft toys, cushions and even the laundry. Dimensions are approximately 55cm wide by 65cm high. The bags have a metal zip and are re-usable.
What an impressive outfit! I had the lovely Matt and Lee move my things into storage in record time whilst still taking the utmost care. How they managed to fit everything into what I considered a tiny storage unit still baffles me and there's room to spare!! It was raining and access wasn't great but they managed all of this with smiles on their faces and I truly felt like nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you very much - I will be recommending you to my friends.See more testimonials >
