5 Movers is committed to both helping the environment and saving you money for your move! A great way to do both is by packing your belongings in used moving boxes!
Reusing moving boxes protects the world’s forests and there are plenty of sources for free, used boxes!
The best boxes are always in mint condition that you will be able to seal with masking tape. If the box can’t be sealed, then you don’t want it! Be sure that the boxes are not cut in anyway. It is very important that the used moving boxes you use will be clean and don’t have a bad smell.
Most of our belongings don’t need special boxes. Even most our clothing is permanent press and can be folded into regular used moving boxes.
Here are some great places that 5 Movers recommends for finding used boxes for you move. If you have a shopping center near you, the stores there will always have boxes.
The best boxes for moving are from book stores! Since you can’t put dirty and torn books on a bookshelf, the boxes need to be strong and clean! Remember that books are paper. They are easily damaged so these bookstore boxes will be waterproofed.
When you seal these boxes they will give your belongings the best protection possible. Clothing stores and department stores will also be a great source for used boxes. 5 Movers doesn’t recommend using boxes from supermarkets or liquor stores. Most of the time they are not clean. Liquor stores cut the lids off the boxes and the boxes can not be sealed.
5 Movers recommends 2 sizes of boxes for most of your moving needs. These are what we call small and medium size boxes. Use small boxes for any of your breakable or heavy items and medium size boxes for everything else. Remember never to pack heavy items into large used moving boxes.
The bottom will fall out of a heavy box!
