There was an amazing and overwhelming response to my question yesterday: where are the best places to get free boxes for moving?
This is what I love about the Instagram community – you are always ready to share your life experiences with me!
From your answers, there are many restaurants and stores that offer to hold their shipping boxes for you when their weekly/monthly orders come in, but you need to call ahead to find out the date of their deliveries and make sure they know you will be coming to pick them up.
There are even services to come drop off bubble wrap and boxes, then when you’re done with their supplies they will come pick it up.
Or you can rent green eco-boxes that are hard plastic, come with lids, and then return them to their drop off location. There are so man options for moving your things!
Here is a list of all the places that have boxes for free:
Top Recommendation: Liquor Store, especially the wine boxes.
Starbucks, especially the coffee boxes.
McDonalds, especially the fry boxes.
SuperStore, especially the apple boxes.
Shoppers Drug Mart
Grocery Store, especially the egg boxes.
Facebook Mom Groups
Here is a list of unique moving services, that is not for free:
Uline, ships you moving traditional supplies.
Eco-Box, environmentally friendly moving supplies. Available in Edmonton & Calgary.
P.S dont forget to share this with any friends or family that are thinking about moving soon!
