How to Save on Packing Supplies When Relocating

Our Moving & Storage Services Company Knows the Answers That You Need

Moving is not only about informing your landlord, paying all your utility bills before leaving, or informing your bank that you have a new mailing address. In fact, you will have to take care of many other things, such as booking a reliable moving & storage services company and packing all your personal belongings and furniture in advance. All these things will cost you some money, no matter how good the deal you have found is. But what to do if you are on a tight budget?

You should definitely not save on professional transportation services if you want your things to be safely delivered. What you can do instead is save on packing supplies. If you want to learn how, read on, as we have listed some alternatives to purchasing new packing boxes:

  • You can visit a local supermarket or grocery store and ask a staff member to give you some of the delivery boxes that they intend to throw anyway. They will be happy to do it.

  • You can ask a friend who has recently moved and has many extra boxes left that he or she can borrow you.

  • If you don’t have enough space to transport empty boxes with your vehicle, you can also ask a few neighbors of yours to give you any extra empty boxes they have. This should help you to at least get started.

  • You can use all of your suitcases as packing boxes as well. After all, if you transport them empty with the relocation truck that you hire, you will lose a great storage opportunity.

  • For transporting fragile items (like your dishes and cups, for example), instead of buying bubble wrap and wrapping them in it first, you can use towels and clothing for this purpose. Soft fabrics will easily fill in the empty space that is left in the boxes which you have used for packing goods that can be easily broken.
