How to Get Free Boxes For Your Move

Expenses can quickly pile up when you’re planning a move, so it’s in your best interests to save money in every way that you can. One way to cut costs is to try to get free boxes instead of buying brand new ones. How? According to Eden’s Moving Company in Denver, you should visit some of these locations:

Grocery Stores

The first place you should stop by on your search for free boxes is the local grocery store. Grocery stores receive new food shipments every day, and many of these items are packed in cardboard boxes. After everything is unpacked, the employees break down the boxes and send them to a local recycling center. Since grocery stores don’t reuse cardboard boxes, they typically have no problem giving them away to customers who ask. You may want to go fairly early in the morning, so the boxes haven’t already been broken down.

Liquor Stores

Liquor stores also receive new inventory packed in cardboard boxes, but there’s one reason why boxes from these retailers may be better than those from grocery stores. The boxes that are used to ship liquor bottles have to be sturdy. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to hold the weight of the bottles. If you have heavy items that need a lot of support, try to get boxes from a liquor store.

Freecycle

Freecycle is a nonprofit website that allows people to give items away for free to other people in the community. The goal is to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, so there is typically a wide variety of items listed on this website. Take a look as you plan your move to see if anyone in your area is giving away cardboard boxes. Learn more about Freecycle.

Schools

After you drop off or pick up your kids, stop by the school’s administrative office to ask if anyone has any boxes that they don’t need. School supplies are often shipped in cardboard boxes, and donations are usually brought in inside boxes. But, schools don’t have much use for boxes after emptying, so chances are some are sitting around.

Recycling Center

If all else fails, take a trip to your local recycling center to see if any cardboard boxes have not been processed yet. Materials at the recycling center should already be separated, so you shouldn’t have trouble finding piles and piles of cardboard. Just be sure to ask the employees at the recycling center before taking any boxes to ensure that there is no policy in place preventing you from doing so.

Now that you know how to get the moving supplies you need, it’s time to start planning your move! If you’re not sure where to start, the professionals at Eden’s Moving Company can help.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
