Not only is moving home a stressful time, it can also be costly when it comes to sourcing packing materials. However, at Jersey Shore Moving, we’ve put together a list of the most resourceful places that you can pick up cheap (or even free!) packing materials from.
Ask Your Friends and Family
Don’t head out to buy new packing supplies just yet. Many of your friends and family may actually have old, unused boxes lying around. Some people hoard them for times when they may need them and forget that they’ve stored them in their attics and garages. So, give them a call to see what you can get before you spend unnecessary money.
Ask in Stores
Many of your local stores will receive deliveries on a weekly basis. Therefore, you should pop in and ask if they could hold some boxes back for you and arrange a collection date with them. Most will be happy to help you out.
Conduct a Clear Out
You might be surprised to find some old flat pack or empty boxes lurking in depths of your house. When you conduct a clear out before moving home, you’ll be sure to find some.
Do Some Online Research
The internet isn’t just full of pictures and videos of cats doing hilarious things; it can actually be pretty resourceful too. Sites like Gumtree, Craigslist and second-hand packaging companies offer cheap and sometimes even free boxes in abundance. You’ll also be able to pick up cheap wrapping paper, bubble wrap and tape online. You’ll be amazed at what you can get for very little!
