moving boxes

Where can I find new boxes?

What are the best stores to get moving boxes from?
Walmart and Amazon are great sites to shop because of their wide selection of brands and affordable prices. Head to The Home Depot or Lowe's for quality store brand moving box collections. You can purchase large cardboard boxes for under $3 each from any retailer above or moving box kits containing up to 48 boxes for $162 at The Home Depot.
You may be able to find free boxes in a few places: allows people to give away moving boxes and even packing supplies to others in the community who could reuse them.
U-Haul’s Customer Connect (an online bulletin board) matches people who have boxes to give away with people who need them.

Moved a lot of furniture (plenty of it being heavy) in a timely manner. Very friendly movers, polite, and cautious with everything. Not a single mark on walls or furniture. All of that and they are priced well. Highly recommend.

The move was within town although originally they had agreed to make the move across country when that was the original situation. They were sensitive and responsive to my mother’s and our needs, and the move was handled quickly and well. We did the packing so they handled heavy boxes and furniture. Furniture pieces were very important to my mother, family pieces, and everything was moved and arrived without a problem. Very happy with their work and would recommend them.

In turn, we have high standards when it comes down to receive service. With MiniMoves my standards and expectations were met and exceeded. My representative took such excellent care of me.
