There are many apps or websites that have people offering free, used boxes and packing materials.  Check out: Facebook’s ‘Buy Nothing’ groups, the Nextdoor Neighbor App, LetGo App, etc.

Check daily or weekly for these items, as they are posted often.  Just make sure when using used boxes to reinforce all sides and openings of the boxes with packing tape. This will give them structure and strength so they can be stacked on top of each other without collapsing.

The big box stores, like Home Depot and Lowe’s are expensive so buy there sparingly. The most expensive place to buy your packing materials though is through your own moving company!  Your moving crew will have extra boxes and packing materials on the truck just in case the customer needs to buy a few last minute items, but this should be used as a back up only, as the convince cost of having the movers bring the materials with them will make the cost of these products that much more expensive.

And don’t forget your mattress bags! Many people forget to procure a large plastic bag to cover their mattress during the moving process.  This will help ensure that your mattress will stay clean and dry throughout the move.
