Cartons or corrugated containers are commonly used for packaging and storing edible goods and other materials. But, they are very useful for other purposes, too. You can store your children’s toys and school supplies in them. You can also use them to transport goods when you relocate. In your workstation, you can keep all your unwanted articles in one of these packing boxes.
According to storeallwa.com.au, Perth’s storage experts, users find these boxes helpful due to the following reasons:
- You just need tape with these containers, and you can pack any articles safely either for storage or transport.
- They are very affordable and economical. If sturdy varieties are chosen, they can be reused multiple times before they are recycled.
- They are available in many sizes, and they can keep even large items. You can also tag or label them, so identifying the packages becomes simpler.
- After your kids have finished playing, you can store their toys, blocks or books in these boxes. You can even paint or stick colourful stickers on them and help the kids organise their toys. They can be decorated to give the kid’s room a bright look.
- You can categorise office supplies and put them in separate containers before storing them away. Labelling them will help you find them later.
- All ‘out of season’ clothing and footwear can be stored in them. You can also label boxes containing these items.
- Store your holiday and birthday decoration items in these boxes. These corrugated containers can either be kept in the garage or the closet.
Their basic functions involve three tasks. The first is to protect the goods stored in them during storage, display and transportation. The second is containment. As they are geometrically shaped, stacking them in minimum space available is easier. The third function is communicating what it contains and in some cases, the manufacturers’ details. Some companies display their name and logos on their containers. Lastly, remember not to shut them tightly, so store them in a weatherproof location.
