How to assemble a standard flat cardboard box

0
Your rating: None
Most removal companies provide cardboard packing boxes flat so you will have to assemble them yourself. The majority of boxes are very easy to construct, but a couple might look like cardboard puzzle at first! Here are some handy hints and tips to avoid a headache next time you have to assemble one.
What you'll need: 
Packing Tape
Space to store the assembled cardboard boxes
Cup of Tea! and may be a biscuit (or 2)!
1: 
Quickly assess the folds in the cardboard box.
2: 
Pull open the box and turn upside-down, so you have four sides and an opening in the middle.
3: 
Fold in the two shortest flaps opposite each other, then fold in the remaining two flaps.
4: 
Straighten the joining edges and seal with packing tape.
5: 
Turn the box the right way up and fill it as required.
6: 
Fold in the top flaps in the same fashion as the bottom flaps and secure with tape.
Tips: 
Use a tape gun to help apply the tape.
Warnings: 
Try to tape the box square
