Having a house relocation usually means you are going to use lots of packing materials and waste a significant amount of money buying them. What if we tell you that you don’t have to do it the conventional way? No “packing police” is going to stop you and demand that you use as much plastic and cardboard as you can fit in the moving truck. We are offering you a new way of thinking and living. Going green doesn’t necessarily means to start composting and recycling everything that you can. You can start with something small but significant.
During a standard house relocation to London you will use somewhere around 20 and 30 cardboard boxes and at least one or two rolls of bubble wrap, not to mention the packing tape and paper.

This is another popular trick when you want to save money and be as eco-friendly as possible during your home relocation. If you don’t have it, someone in your community may have, so don’t be afraid to ask.
If you don’t want to use other people’s old crates, you can actually order some from your house moving company. Many agencies in London offering moving services also have a great variety of packing materials. You can choose the size and shape of your reusable containers and simply rent what you need. This way at the end of the house removing process you won’t have to deal with the mountain of spare cardboard boxes. The reusable crates are usually made from plastic and undergo a sanitation procedure after each customer has used them.
Other things you can purchase are biodegradable packing materials like paper of foam peanuts.
To be able to pack your whole household relying heavily on your upcycling skills is actually not that hard. As we mentioned almost everything in the home can be used either as a wrapper or a carrier.
