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.
