Where Can I Find (FREE) Moving Boxes?

Summer is winding down and that means a lot of people are moving: in and out of homes, back to school, across the country, across the globe … and what they all have in common is the need for boxes.

Jerry Seinfeld does a fantastic skit about the search for packing boxes, but he never gives you the answer on where to find them. Well, here are a few ideas to get you started:

Location #1: Local Shopkeepers

Big-box stores have their pros and cons like everything else, and one of the “cons” is that they have a protocol for everything – including what they do with the MASSIVE amount of empty boxes they compress and (hopefully) recycle. They have laws, guidelines, blah blah blah …

But, the grocer down the street just wants to get rid of ‘em. Don’t be afraid to ask around at these local shops. They’re usually very friendly and happy to help.

Location #2: Your Friends / Family

You never know until you ask, although it’s not like anyone is going to have a bunch of empty boxes stacked up in the house, ready to go. No, the trick is thinking about people who might have connections to empty boxes. Do any of your friends or family work in a store, a factory or at a delivery service? If so, they can definitely hook you up.

Location #3: The Street

This especially applies to recycling day, when everyone puts out their big blue bins that are stuffed with cardboard. Your move will be hard enough as it is – don’t make it harder than it needs to be by being too proud to do a little Dumpster diving.

Location #4: Delivery / Moving Companies

Use this only as a last resort – there’s nothing more annoying than having to pay for something you can usually get for free. But, if you’re up against a wall and the time is nigh there’s no end to the list of companies out there willing to overcharge you for an empty box.
