How to Find Free Moving Boxes
September 17, 2015 – 01:20 pm
See how many boxes you need? Get cracking!The problem with finding free moving boxes is not figuring out if they exist – they do.

The problem with finding free moving boxes is that by the time you think to do it, it’s two days before The Big Move and you’re so desperate for packing materials that you end up spending 60 bucks on a Multi-Room Super Storage Pak from the local Save’n'Store.

Place to look: Craigslist

The ultimate free stuff resource. Go to your community’s Craigslist, click [For Sale], search for [moving boxes] in [free stuff] and you’ll have access to enough free moving boxes to build a castle of cardboard in your new backyard.

There are several other online resources for free (or really, really cheap) moving boxes:

  • Freecycle.org: sign up for your community Freecycle and find free, used packing equipment
  • Boomerang Boxes: you can buy used moving boxes for a song, and then sell them back if they’re still in good condition
  • Freecardboardboxes.com: an affiliate of Boomerang Boxes that allows people in the same region to swap free boxes when needed

Expert tip: Bring your own box cutters. There is nothing worse than driving 25 minutes to collect your bounty only to discover they have not been collapsed. Sorry, but 12 full-sized boxes will not fit in your Subaru Impreza, no matter how hard you try.

Place to look: Local Apartment Complex

Hone your stalking skills and scope out the apartment complexes in your area. As new tenants arrive, offer to take all their empty boxes off their hands as a “welcome to the neighborhood” gesture – heck, go ahead and help them get the couch up the stairs while you’re at it. Your good karma will pay out in cardboard.

No U-Hauls on the horizon? Leave your name and phone number with the landlord or apartment manager and let them know you’re on the lookout.

Expert tip: College campuses are also great places to find boxes. Your best bet is to go to the back entrance or loading dock of the university cafeteria and talk to the wait staff. They can likely hook you up.

Place to look: Retail Stores

Strip malls will provide a bounty of boxes. They are constantly receiving shipments of new goods, and new goods come in boxes – it’s as simple as that. You can even shop around for the boxes of your dreams: stop by Best Buy for all your electronics, Barnes and Noble for your books, etc.
