-> Moving boxes and supplies

Question by humphreys1rmea (Richard Humphreys)

Will moving companies supply my moving boxes?

Do moving companies supply all of the boxes for the move or do I need to have the boxes for my plasma t.v., computer, etc. on hand?

You need to address that with your moving company before they show up on moving day!

Generally speaking, some moving companies will throw in moving supplies free or at a reduced cost, or they might let you use some 'lightly used' boxes from previous jobs.

However, if you expect the moving companies to give you boxes on your moving day, you'll have to pay for them, and you'll pay a pretty penny. I would recommend getting moving boxes well before your move, and get more than you think you'll need -- people ALWAYS need more than they expect. Websites like will deliver directly to your home, and will overnight them if you're behind in your packing.

Moving companies should be able to help you track down the specialty boxes you mention. Otherwise, you can almost always find them online, or speak to the retailer where you bought them -- they might have some of these you can have or buy.
