Here are three very compelling reasons not to use cardboard boxes:
1. SAVE MONEY
Our moving boxes cost on average 30% less than cardboard boxes you can purchase from other suppliers. Unlike cardboard boxes, our boxes stack together perfectly and move around with ease on our dolly. Movers love them and typically a move can take less time which means less money. Our moving solutions can add up to an overall savings of 50% or more in supplies and moving time combined.
2. SAVE TIME
Whether you find them behind a liquor store or buy them brand new, cardboard boxes are time consuming to assemble, pack and move and dispose of. An average person will take 4-6 hours to locate, acquire, fold and tape their cardboard boxes. After the move you still have to break them down and dispose of the cardboard responsibly. Because we deliver the pre-assembled boxes directly to you and pick them up at your new location* when you’re done, you do not have to waste time going to pick up cardboard boxes or assembling them.
Spend your time biking, hiking or shopping for your new home with the time saved using our service.
3. SAVE TREES
Cardboard boxes are created by cutting down trees. Even if cardboard is recycled it has a lifespan of approximately 3 uses before it breaks down and can no longer be used. Denver’s Moving Boxes are made of recyclable industrial strength plastic to be durable enough for more than 300 moves. Each of our boxes has the potential over its life cycle to save approximately 500 cardboard boxes from being used and sent to the landfill. Reusing is the best option before recycling and unfortunately only 25% of cardboard finds its way to recycling the rest arrives to our landfills.
