Moving boxes

Anyone know where I can get proper moving boxes (50x41x27cm and 60x41x34cm or so)? I haven't been able to find an answer in all the shipping threads. I looked at Jumbo, but they only had these huge wardrobe boxes, though they had all the other possible moving paraphernalia.

Re: Moving boxes

Both IKEA and OBI sell cardboard moving boxes.

Re: Moving boxes

If you contact any of the moving companies they can supply you with the necessary boxes.

Re: Moving boxes

The Ikea boxes are comparatively cheap and sturdy enough. They lasted through the move from Bern to Sydney.

Re: Moving boxes

Try also the market place forums on here - I recently offloaded about 20 moving boxes, which had been supplied by removals firm. With so many expats moving in and out of the country, there are plenty around...
