Let’s face it, there is nothing very fun about preparing to move. Even if you are looking forward to a new home, a new town or even clearing your life of clutter as you pack, it is a daunting task. Moving takes preparation. Moving takes up time. Moving takes up plenty of money. If you do not have a full-service professional moving company coming to your home to take care of you, you may think resorting to collecting boxes around town to save money is a good idea. Some people also consider ordering cardboard moving packages online. Sounds like a potential plan, right?
Want free cardboard boxes? It usually takes you stopping in the store in person to get those boxes. If you’re lucky, the store may have 10 appropriately sized, clean boxes worth taking home. Let’s hope your vehicle has plenty of space as well! If not, dropping those off to move onto the next store takes more time and gas. Let’s also not forget cardboard also absorbs plenty of dirt, bacteria and other things you do not want to introduce to your personal belongings.
Are you thinking of ordering a cardboard moving package online? Seems like a better idea, right? Did you factor in the assembly time and packing tape? An average roll of tape will run $4-6 and will seal 10 large boxes per roll. The average household move takes 50 boxes. Our customers save both time and money by skipping this idea. On average, our customers save up to 30% of the cost of cardboard boxes and packing supplies from online retailers.
What if your cardboard plan gets foiled? Let’s hope it doesn’t rain during your move. Let’s hope your breakable coffee cups don’t get placed below the box of dusty books you’ve had since high school. Our BlueCow Boxes™ stack six high and are durable – they won’t crush or tear and they are water resistant. Feel free to throw that mattress on top of those six boxes as well! On average, using our boxes save up to 35% more space in a standard sized moving truck. Save money by renting a smaller truck. Movers can help you estimate your needs after you have packed and know your total box load. They love BlueCow Boxes™ too since it makes loading and unloading easy on them.
BlueCow Boxes™ keeps more money in your pocket while saving you all the time it takes to hunt down, assemble and then break down those same boxes. Our team is ready to help you create your plan. We will deliver those boxes to your doorstep and will pick them up at your new home. It’s just that simple!
