It’s a hassle, a waste of valuable resources and a nightmare waiting to happen.

The hassle of finding or buying boxes alone is worth it. You don’t have to worry about finding boxes, packing tape or a pen when you need to mark things. Plus, we do all of the rest of the work. Did you know that 850 million tons of paper and cardboard end up in landfills across the United States annually? Because we use our boxes hundreds of times, the environmental impact of creating them is far less than the impact of manufacturing or recycling all of that cardboard. The average person uses around 60 boxes per move, weighing 100 lbs or more, and when that ends up in a landfill it releases methane into the air. That’s a lot of cardboard waste we’ve saved so far and the more customers we serve, the closer we get to a healthier earth. Our reusable plastic bins are more durable than cardboard and keep your precious belongings much better protected than if packed in cardboard.
We offer VIP service at a midrange cost. Once we get your inventory, we evaluate the below factors and give you a price. If your circumstances remain the same, so will the quote.
