My wife and don't have much stuff that we want to bring with us when when move. As such I have determined that it would be best just to check an extra piece of luggage each with the airline when we fly over.
Between my wife and I we only actually have 1 or 2 suitably large suitcases.
It seems like buying new (or even second hand) rolling luggage just for single use in the move is a bit of a waste. As such we are considering other options to fill out the rest.
One option I particularly like is the idea of buying some sturdy moving boxes, like you would use if having your stuff transported. Having used those before when moving house, they are not your ordinary box. Heavy duty, double-reinforced corrugated cardboard.
I feel like they would stand-up to the punishment of a flight no problem. They will be perhaps a bit of a pain to move about at each end when moving between plane, trains and taxis. But so would having extra rolling luggage, and at most of those points a trolley can be arranged.
Is this viable? Has anyone first (or second) hand experience of doing this?
