You will find on this site all the equipment you need for a successful move.

For cardboard and adhesives, use our “How many boxes?” section.

We suggest that you order your boxes in sufficient numbers and at least 4 weeks before the date of your move. So you can start packing early enough, and by packing a few boxes every day, you'll avoid being overwhelmed at the last minute. Take the time to make quality packaging so that your items are well protected. Finally, to facilitate later unpacking, proceed piece by piece, avoiding putting objects from different pieces in the same box.

The choice of material

Choose your boxes by thinking about what you will put in them. The resistance of the box is important, but its weight once filled is even more so: a large box filled with heavy objects is practical, but untransportable!

Choose easily:

  • For things that are neither too heavy, nor too fragile, nor too bulky (clothes, laundry, toys, shoes, pots, etc.), use the standard box, this is the most common.
  • For fragile dishes, choose special boxes with glass and plate racks, or possibly the little book box.
  • For bottles, use box of 12 bottles with its automatic brace.
  • For books, magazines, papers and other heavy objects, prefer the book box because it is small and remains easily transportable.
  • For bulky and fragile objects (video & stereo equipment, screens, lights, etc.), choose large volume reinforced cardboard.
  • For clothes on hangers, the ideal solution is the wardrobe box, available in 2 sizes.
  • Finally, for archives and documents, choose the archive container, practical for transporting them but also for keeping them tidy.

Simplify your life with the following accessories:

  • To quickly and effectively protect all that is fragile: bubble wrap.
  • To hold objects together and close furniture doors and drawers without using sticky tape: stretch film.
  • To effectively protect your fragile furniture: mover's blanket And its rubber strap.
  • To preserve the hygiene of your bedding and protect it: mattress covers.
  • In addition to boxes to pack your light and non-fragile objects: pillows, duvets, textiles, soft toys, toys: the tote bag 130 liters.
  • To avoid losing hardware and screws when dismantling your furniture, but also keys, electronic cables, batteries, etc. : hardware bags.

Finally, don't forget:

  • To really save time closing your boxes: the adhesive dispenser.
  • To identify items on which you cannot write or pre-prepare information to stick on the cards: adhesive labels.
  • To open your boxes when moving in: le cutter.
  • To protect your hands during handling: gloves.

Assembly and closing of boxes

It's quite simple:

  • To assemble your box, put it upside down to start by closing the bottom: first fold down the 2 small flaps then fold the 2 larger ones over without crossing them.
  • Apply a length of adhesive along the entire length of the slot, making it go up about 10 cm on the 2 short sides.
  • Then, to consolidate it, apply one or two lengths of adhesive crosswise, depending on the size of the cardboard, also making them go up on the 2 long sides.
  • Turn your box right side up, it's ready to be filled.
  • To close it when it is full, fold and glue the top flaps exactly as for the bottom.


Identify by "FRAGILE" or "HEAVY" boxes concerned to avoid breakage or pain! Our most used cardboard models (standard cardboard and book cardboard) are printed with a grid that allows you to easily indicate the box number, its contents and the room where it should be stored. Remember to use it, you will save time when unpacking.

You can also make a list (on paper or computer) with the number of each box and its contents. Thus, if you need to find an object before all the boxes are opened, look in the in your list and you will directly have the number of the box that contains it. This organization is also very practical if all or part of your boxes remain stored for a long period, in storage boxes or furniture storage for example.

Filling the boxes

Completely fill your boxes so that they remain rigid: if there is a void, fill it with other objects, crumpled paper or bubble wrap. In this way, you will prevent them from deforming or crushing and their content being damaged.

Crockery and small fragile objects

For crockery, choose our boxes specially equipped with spacers for glasses or plates.

If you use cardboard without crosspieces, place a “shock absorber” made of bubble wrap or crumpled paper at the bottom of the cardboard. Usually place the heaviest items first, and store plates vertically to better protect them. Insulate objects from each other with bubble wrap or cardboard. Finally, place a final layer of bubble wrap or crumpled paper on top before closing the box.

Bulky and fragile items

When possible, disassemble them into different parts to transport and store them more easily and avoid breakage. For example, for lamps and floor lamps, dismantle the lampshades.

Then, depending on the nature of the objects, protect them with covers, bubble wrap or cut-out pieces of cardboard. For example, if you no longer have the original packaging for your television or stereo, wrap them with blankets. For paintings or coasters, you can use unmounted, flat cardboard, like cases.

A professional tip: to hold or attach objects, use stretch film. It is much more effective than string or adhesive because it is very quick to use, and above all very practical: it does not stick and therefore does not damage the surfaces of your furniture and objects.

The furniture

Light and small pieces of furniture, such as a small chest of drawers or a bedside cabinet for example, can be transported with their possible contents.

To easily move your other furniture without damaging it, it is best to empty it by storing its contents in boxes.

For "transportable" furniture, leave the doors and drawers in place and to prevent them from opening during transport, immobilize them with stretch film.

For very bulky or heavy furniture, dismantling is necessary. Bring the corresponding tools: screwdriver, mallet, assembly keys, etc. Start by identifying the different panels by sticking labels or adhesive on them on which you can write. During disassembly, keep and identify all the hardware in sealed bags (on sale on this site) that you can stick with adhesive on part of the furniture so as not to lose them. If you want to attach different parts of the furniture together, consider stretch film too.

Finally, it is essential to protect the fragile parts of your furniture. The ideal is to use blankets held in place with large rubber straps, as professional movers do. Otherwise, you can use flat cardboard or bubble wrap, depending on the nature of the furniture.

We wish you a good move!
