Where To Buy Moving Boxes? Your Top Options For Moving Boxes & Supplies
If you know about a move months in advance, you may be able to save up boxes from home deliveries and other purchases, and move without buying any moving boxes. But most people will end up needing to buy at least a few moving boxes.
What are your options for getting the boxes you need to pack up your stuff? Here are a few top recommendations from Three Men And A Truck.
Online Vendors Like Amazon Or Uline
As you might expect, Amazon has plenty of sellers who provide inexpensive cardboard boxes. Uline is another top vendor that sells shipping supplies and moving supplies in bulk, and they offer very fast delivery, so that may be a good option. With a bit of Googling, you can find lots of other online vendors that sell moving boxes, too.
Parcel Stores Like FedEx & UPS Stores
If you have a FedEx Store or UPS Store near you, they typically sell a wide variety of packing supplies including boxes, packing peanuts or packing air bags, tape, and other such things that you may need while packing.
Note that the USPS (Post Office) is typically not a good choice for bulk boxes, as it primarily sells prepaid shipping boxes intended for shipping goods, rather than moving.
Online Classifieds (Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, Etc.)
If you want to buy used boxes for a low cost, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and other online classified services like Letgo are a good option. After people move, they often list bulk boxes and other supplies like tape and packing peanuts online for a fraction of the price that new boxes would cost.
Truck & Van Rental Companies
Truck and van rental companies like Penske, Uhaul, and Budget typically sell cardboard boxes and other moving supplies, even if you’re not renting a truck or van.
Some of these services also will rent reusable plastic moving bins and tubs, which provide better protection for your stuff and are more eco-friendly, since they do not have to be recycled or thrown away after you move. This is usually a bit more expensive than just buying cardboard boxes, however.
Home Improvement Stores & Hardware Stores
Most home improvement stores like Home Depot, Lowe’s, Menards, and other such stores have lots of cardboard boxes and packing supplies for sale. This can be a convenient option if you also need to pick up some other home improvement items for your new home.
Local hardware stores and chain stores like ACE Hardware typically have plenty of moving boxes for sale, so this may be a better option depending on the stores near you.
