There are many different handy skills that people can learn over a period of time. These skills can be very useful in a lot of situations, including learning how to build moving cardboard boxes for a relocation. Even though the initial building may take a little time to complete accurately, people tend to get a lot swifter when they have completed quite a few. Whatever the case, it is very important that people learn how to build them quickly so that they can help to speed up the packing process.
That said, here are the 4 steps that people can follow to build cardboard boxes correctly.
Step #1 – Gather all of the supplies that will be needed to build the cardboard box. Fortunately, there are only 3 items that will be required to do this kind of job correctly, and they are listed as follows.
– Tape Gun
– Flat Moving box
Step #2 – Pick up the flat moving box, and then begin to fold it into the shape of a cube. If the person has any difficulty with completing this step, the instructions for folding it in this manner is normally written on the box. In general, this process is usually very simple to do because it only requires standing the flat moving box in an upright position and then opening each of the corners of the box out as instructed.
– Once part of building a moving box is complete, the person will then fold each of the flaps across one another very carefully. The lower flaps of the moving box should be folded 1st and then the upper flaps should be folded 2nd.
– Based on how the boxes are designed, the person may be able to secure the flaps by simply tucking them at the end. This tucking process is great for making sure the flaps are secured in a manner that will make it difficult for them to open again.
Step #3 – After the flaps are in the correct position, the next step is to position the box upright. Simply stated, the base of the box (flaps that have been closed) should be positioned upwards toward the ceilings if the person is on the inside of a home or facility.
– The tape gun should be used to tape the bottom of the box so that it remains closed permanently.
– Make sure the tape covers the entire flap on each side of the box and then break off the excess tape accordingly. Most people can judge how far the tape needs to travel down before it i cut off.
-The actions provided above should be done over and over again until the bottom of the box is strong enough to handle small or large items to be placed in them for storage.
Step #4 – Pack Items in the Box for Moving day
Once all of the items have been placed in the box (books, tablets, ink pens, bowls, electronics, etc.), all the person has to do is to seal the top of the box. Sealing the top of the box will only require using the tape gun again to apply the tape. The tape can be applied liberal enough to cover the top of the box so that it will not open again without being cut.
