4 Unexpected Places to Get FREE MOVING BOXES

  • Your produce section. Apples come shipped to stores in boxes, and it’s someone’s job to break the boxes down and take them to the trash when all the fruit has been taken out. If you ask nicely, you’ll find that most stores will be more than happy to give you some boxes.
  • Liquor stores and bars. When alcohol is shipped, it comes in sturdy, reinforced boxes that often have dividers in the middle to keep the glass bottles from clinking together and breaking. These are perfect for fragile items!
  • University campuses. Oftentimes in school stores, there are leftover boxes from book and merchandise shipments that go straight the the recycling bin.
  • Offices. Reams of printing paper are shipped in durable cardboard boxes with lids and handles, so offices have a lot of these lying around.

  • Over-charge. If the price of your move magically jumps, make sure to get clarification of why before you sign the contract.
  • Not have a tariff. This legal document is required by the US Department of Transportation, and if the company doesn’t have one on hand, they are operating outside of the law.
  • Keep reviews from you. If this company doesn’t want you reading what previous customers have to say, they’re probably bad news.
  • Not keep contact. If the lines of communication aren’t open between you and your movers, it’s time to find a more professional company.
