When getting ready to move you will quickly realize that you need boxes – massive amounts of boxes. You will also need a wide assortment of sizes and heights to accommodate all of your belongings. If you are looking for ideas on where to get boxes for your next move, Augusta Movers has some suggestions.
Local Schools & Colleges
Many schools have regular deliveries that leave behind mountains of empty crates and boxes. Consider asking the school if you can take their next batch of empties on delivery day. This will help reduce waste at the school while keeping you organized during your move.
Retail locations burn through a large number of cardboard boxes daily. Many businesses even pay to have their empty boxes hauled away. Before you head out to purchase fresh boxes, stop by your local electronics or big box store to see what they have discarded. You will often be able to find extra-large boxes, cartons, and even small boxes to fit your moving needs.
Ask Your Neighbors
If you are on good terms with your neighbors you can ask them if they have any packing materials lying around that they don’t need. Plenty of people save packing materials to recycle, so if you catch them before they are placed on the curb you can fulfill some of your moving box needs.
Check Your Office
You can also check your office or ask your colleagues if they are looking to get rid of any. You might be surprised who can help out with packing materials for your big day.
You can find just about anything you need on social media and that includes boxes for moving. Try making a post on social media about your needs and watch the packing supplies come rolling in. You can also check out classified ads to see if anyone has listed supplies for sale.
Most classifieds such as Craigslist have hundreds if not thousands of listings for free or cheap boxes. You can also check out eBay or Kijiji if you are not successful in other places. Freecycle is another great place to find free or cheap boxes.
If you don’t have any luck with these methods, you always have the option to purchase moving supplies from a office supply store or directly from our moving company. If you are looking for sturdier options, you can even purchase plastic reusable storage containers.
