Go for a Greener Move

One of the ways you can make your move more environment friendly is to use used boxes for your move. Many people underestimate the impact of using boxes for moving – just the amount of trees it takes to make a cardboard box as well as the amount of waste generated from cardboard boxes, which happen to be one of the most common types of paper-based waste.

One option for you, as mentioned, is to use used boxes. Some movers rent used boxes to their clients. You can also contact grocery stores and shops to ask if you can buy their used boxes.

This is not only more environment friendly, but is also a cheaper way to get boxes for your move.

Some movers also rent out recycled containers, which can be used repeatedly. These containers are sturdy and also reduce the fee you need to pay when you buy new boxes.

However, if you do want to buy new boxes, another option would be to sell them, as there are some out there who buy used boxes – your moving company might be one of them.

Make sure that you check each box if they are still usable before buying them. Make sure as well their sizes fit with your needs and can properly accommodate your things when you start packing.
