Where can I get packing supplies like boxes and packing paper?


By ajakab

You can usually purchase packing supplies such as boxes, packing paper, and packing tape from the moving company you hire. You can also purchase these items at large hardware stores. When you pick up boxes, keep in mind that your vehicle size matters. Most unfolded medium and large boxes won’t fit in two-door or small four-door vehicles. Crushing the boxes to make them fit can damage their structural integrity.

The other option is to get used boxes, or reuse boxes you already have in your home. Used materials are a great way to save cash during your move, but the downside is that they come with the risk of damaging your belongings if the quality has degraded with time.  If you’re reusing old boxes or getting used boxes from a grocery or other retail store, you should make sure the boxes are clean and free of any damage that could cause them to give during your move. If they feel weak or unsteady, don’t use them!
