Where can I find FREE Moving Boxes in NYC?If there is one thing the moving specialists at NYC Movers & Packers have learned about moving in the Big Apple, it’s that there are no perfect solutions for every problem that arises, only reasonable ones.  No matter how well you plan and prepare, no two moves are ever the same.  Indeed, they are just as unique as the individuals you are helping.  Each customer has a specific set of needs and requirements when moving in NYC.  That’s why we always strive to exceed their expectations and provide a superior level of customer service when assisting with their relocation. And with a plethora of services that we offer our clients to make the move easier and stress-free, we do offer packing services and can supply all the packing material that you require at an additional cost.

Why should you hire a full-service moving company?

As a full-service moving company, NYC Movers & Packers handles everything that’s associated with your move.  This includes supplying all moving and packing materials, disassembling and reassembling furniture, packing and unpacking your belongings, loading and unloading our truck, and transporting everything to your new home.  The benefit of hiring a full-service moving company is that you are able to choose as many or as few services as you want based on your budget.

Isn’t a DIY move cheaper than hiring professional movers?

Although doing the move yourself or a DIY move may sound tempting because you think this will save you money, that’s not always the case.  In fact, hiring NYC Movers & Packers often turns out to be cheaper in the long run once you start adding up the costs associated with a DIY move.  This is especially true when you calculate the wages you’ll lose by missing work while you’re moving.

Furthermore, consider the fact that your belongings are protected against damage and loss with our liability insurance and valuation coverage.  If you damage any of your items in a DIY move, you’ll be paying out-of-pocket to repair or replace them.  The same holds true if you damage the residence you’re vacating.  This is another reason why hiring professional movers is often cheaper than a DIY move.

How can you save money even if you hire NYC Movers & Packers?

While the thought of how hiring professional movers will impact your budget may make you cringe a bit, there are ways that you can save money when doing this.  One of those ways is doing the packing yourself.  This brings up another issue – the boxes need for the packing.  So the question arises “Where can I find FREE moving boxes in NYC?”

Finding free moving boxes is one way to decrease your moving costs.  Surprisingly, there are a number of ways to locate free boxes for packing up your items including:

  • Check the local delis, as well as book, grocery, and liquor stores – this is another excellent source of free boxes. For instance, liquor stores have boxes with dividers in them which are perfect for glassware or a wine collection.
  • Look through Craigslist – free boxes are often advertised in the “free” section of the Craigslist website. There are literally thousands of individuals that move into or within NYC every day and many of them will be more than willing to let you take their moving boxes off their hands.
  • Save delivery boxes – if you’re like many other NYC apartment residents, you probably get frequent deliveries from companies like Amazon, Walmart, and others. Additionally, your neighbors probably do, too.  Break down those boxes and save them while asking your neighbors to do the same for you.
  • Take boxes home from your employer – if you work for a company that always gets deliveries of product, you can always break down the boxes these items are shipped in and take them home. Just get this approved by your manager or the business owner.
  • Talk to department store or retail outlet employees – be aware that many retailers today are recycling their cardboard so it may be tough finding free boxes at these locations. It’s still worth the effort though. You can always ask.

If you’re remotely creative, you can save money on some of your moving supplies.  If you find that you still need dish boxes, a box for your flat screen TV, or wardrobe boxes, NYC Movers & Packers can supply those. We have helped innumerable businesses and residents move all over the country and can help you make a stress-free move.
