Preparing to move: Finding Cheap or Free Packing Supplies
Sep 15, 2015
Here's a great guide for preparing to move, including great ways to find cheap or free packing supplies.
There are a lot of places to buy packing supplies, but boxes and tape can add up to quite a bit of money. You can avoid this additional cost by hitting up one of quite a few places handing out free boxes.
Most retailers receive a lot of shipments, but your best bet is to contact furniture stores. While your average retailer may be able to provide you with some used boxes, you'll be able to find a greater range of sizes from furniture stores. Be sure to call them up at least a week in advance of when you want to start packing, however, as box disposal isn't necessarily a daily task. If your friends are moving before you, another way to get used boxes is to ask them to give them to you when they're finished.
You may also be able to find boxes in the office you work in, or ask a friend to bring home any boxes they can find at the office.
By following these simple steps you can quickly and cheaply get ready to start your move! If you require help moving to your new home contact us for more information about our quality moving services.
