One of the expenses in moving is the boxes you need to pack up everything you own. If you have the time, you can virtually eliminate this cost by getting your boxes for free.

As soon as you know that you will be moving, start putting the word out to all your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Have them save their boxes for you. Arrange with them how to get you the boxes; they bring them to work, or drop them off at your house, or you pick them up at their house.

When you go grocery shopping, start asking for any extra boxes the store may want to get rid of. Most stores will be happy to give you their boxes, since they are in their way and going to the trash anyway. All you need to do is ask.

The same thing works at other types of stores also. Whenever you are shopping, ask the staff there for any unwanted boxes. Some of the better places to pick these up will be Walmart, K-Mart, Costco, Best Buy, Sears, Target, Sam’s Club, CVS, Walgreens,

Large refrigerator and other appliance boxes make great moving boxes. Check with nearby appliance stores and see if they have any large boxes that they want to unload.

Given plenty of time to prepare, you can usually acquire more than enough boxes for your move, without paying a cent. Most of these boxes have been broke down (made flat), but with a single roll of packing tape, it’s easy to restore them.

By getting your boxes for free, the cost of your move is reduced. To save even more money on your move, call Discount Moving Company Toll Free – (855) 423-7987.
