One of the first and most important steps of the moving process is packing, which means getting plenty of boxes.
For those looking to save money, there are several ways to obtain boxes. You might take a trip to local liquor stores, big chain superstore loading docks or connect with friends and neighbors who recently moved and are in the process of unpacking. Although these options are cheaper, you run the risk of getting boxes that are damaged, moldy or the incorrect size for your needs. Another factor to consider is the time and energy spent arranging the retrieval of these boxes.
We once completed a move for a customer that did all of her packing with shoe boxes; it made the day so much longer because of all the extra trips we had to take in and out of the house.
For those researching professional moving companies like Gentle Giant, you’ll notice that boxes can be included as part of your moving service. Gentle Giant’s Box Xpress Department offers easy ways to order boxes, which includes free delivery and optional one, two or three-bedroom apartment kits. These kits include the proper number and sizes of boxes and materials needed to accommodate each type of home or apartment.
