Where to buy moving supplies for cheap

September 8th, 2017 - 2:33 PM

Looking for cheap moving supplies? 

When packing for a long-distance move, it’s critical to give your items the best protection. Finding used boxes and supplies for free can be tempting. However, worn-out materials usually aren’t stable enough to support your belongings. The good news is cheap (and new) moving supplies are available — you just have to know where to look. Let’s talk about why buying new packing materials is best, and where you can buy them at an affordable price.

Getting free materials vs. buying brand new 

Old boxes can have holes and tears, which can put the items packed inside at risk. Most likely, they’ve also been broken down, taped and stacked multiple times. That affects their structural integrity, which is why we recommend buying new boxes. You can find these at an affordable price at the U-Pack® box store.

Moving kits  

Moving kits offer a variety of supplies based on home size. Items like boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, tape markers, etc., are included. Because it’s cheaper when bundled together, moving kits can help save you money. Choose from these four options based on your needs and budget: 

  • Economy kit 
  • Basic kit 
  • Enhanced kit 
  • Wardrobe kit 

Buy in bulk 

If you prefer to piece together your own supplies instead, buy the items you want in bulk for a lower price. U-Pack offers boxes and packing materials in a variety of bundle sizes. Buying in bulk is cost-effective and it helps ensure you have plenty of supplies on hand.
