Just say no to the old cardboard moving box!

If you’ve moved before you know that getting cardboard boxes is the first step in the difficult process of moving your home or apartment. If you bought them, found them free or reused some old ones, that was just a small step in your endeavor.

Then the building and taping → and then finally…… the packing begins. The Other Box simplifies your moving experience by conveniently delivering our recycled plastic moving boxes to your home about a week before your move date. Our reusable moving boxes were designed to maximize storage space and minimize packing time. The Other Box has a flip lid with locking tab which means no more annoying tape. They are made of durable and recyclable plastic so you don’t have to worry about over packing. Go ahead and fill em up! they won’t break.

Moving Tips


  • Why pack it if you don’t need it! REDUCE-REUSE -RECYCLE The best way to save money is to rid you of anything that is not worth moving. If you are not going to have a use for an item in a new location, have a garage sale or yard sale. Sell it for whatever you can get for it. Recycle it. Donating to a local charity organization is a great option too. If you haven’t used something in more than two years, you probably don’t need it.

    Get a floor plan : of your new house or apartment. Having a floor plan, (even if it is drawn up by you ) can help you plan your move. Mark each room with a color code. You then can mark each moving box with the corresponding color as you pack.

    Label Priority boxes: Your moving boxes may start out very organized but it all can get out of hand very quickly.By doing this, the open first moving boxes will be the first moving boxes to come off the moving truck. This is important because even if you have marked the moving boxes. labeling your boxes open first will provide your essential items right away. Items such as- cleaning supplies-soap-toilet paper- a change of clothes. ..etc. If you skip this the essential boxes could be buried in the moving truck under several other boxes, which would be frustrating

    Happy Moving Friends
