There are a number of reasons to use boxes, including the fact that they are easy to pack in and they stack up in the truck easily. There several ways to get moving boxes, such as:
- Amazon – You can order moving boxes on Amazon, and they are usually delivered quickly and with free shipping.
- Local Grocery Stores – Grocery stores get many boxes from their shipments, and some might give out a lot of free sturdy boxes.
- Bookstores – Call your local bookstore to inquire about boxes they receive their books in. These boxes are also sturdy, so they can withstand the weight of books that are being stored in them.
- Someone Who Just Moved – Talk to your friends or post on your social media to see if you know someone who just moved and has extra boxes.
- Recycling Centers – Most sustainable individuals usually take their extra boxes to a recycling center. Check with an attendant to try to score some free boxes.
There are many different types of moving boxes, such as:
- Wardrobe Boxes
- Dish Packs
- Small Moving Boxes
- Medium Moving Boxes
- Larger Moving Boxes
- Art Crates
- Plastic Bins
- Mattress Boxes
If you cannot find any free ones, a couple of places to check out for boxes are:
- UPS Store
- Lowe’s, Home Depot, or Walmart
There are alternatives to moving boxes such as reusable grocery bags that you get at stores like:
- Food Lion
- Whole Foods
These bags are usually big and can support items such as clothes, that way they are already folded up and you just have to move them from the bag into the dresser or onto a hanger. The reusable grocery bags can also be used for other household items you will need to be moved.

Moving blankets are great if you want that extra layer of protection to ensure that your items are transported safely. Moving blankets are also called moving pads or furniture pads, but all protect the cargo from scratches.
If you are wondering how many moving blankets you need, it is best to have about a dozen moving pads for each bedroom in your house.
A good rule of thumb is:
- 1 Bedroom– 12 Blankets
- 2 Bedroom– 24 Blankets
- 3 Bedroom– 36 Blankets
- 4 Bedroom– 48 Blankets
