Save Money on Your Move by Finding Free Moving Boxes
Planning a move requires a lot of attention to detail. One of the most difficult details is finding enough boxes in order to move all of your things. Quite often you'll need sturdy boxes that can hold heavier items as well as protect your more fragile things. As you begin to plan your move, be sure to hold onto boxes that come with internet orders. But unless you're ordering enough to keep Amazon in business, chances are you'll need to get a bit creative on ways to source more boxes for the move. Here are the best places to pick up boxes no matter where you live.
Grocery Stores – Inside and Out
Plenty of Durham movers know the best place to go is the local grocery store. In fact, plenty of people know to hit up the local grocery store for boxes but not many people think to get boxes from inside the store as well as discarded boxes left out back.
In fact, many stores hold onto produce boxes for a number of reasons, including that they are fairly sturdy and can be used around their own warehouse. Ask someone working in the back if it's possible to have or even just borrow a few, especially if they have banana boxes, which are especially strong and sturdy. Discount grocery stores where you pack your own groceries also usually have plenty of boxes both inside and out. If you have an Aldi's, Save-A-Lot or other discount store, check there as well.
