Have you ever thought about packing your household items safely and appropriately without using cardboard moving boxes?

Yes, I’ve actually thought about that too! And so many people often ask about where to find alternatives to cardboard moving boxes during a move.

But why is that so?

Some cardboard moving boxes are not strong enough to hold the weight of many household items, even if you have to use so many packing tapes to hold the cardboard together. Some boxes are not so easy to load into a moving truck and many of them crush easily under the weight of heavier items.

Some boxes are damaged easily while in transit and most often than not, you’ll need a whole lot of cardboard boxes to pack your household goods. After the move, you’ll have to get rid of the cardboard boxes and they are not so environmentally friendly.

But then I found an alternative to cardboard boxes – plastic moving boxes!

Benefits of packing with plastic moving boxes

You can actually pack your household goods in plastic moving boxes that are strong enough to hold their weight. These boxes are designed just for packing and unlike cardboard boxes they are:

  • Water resistant,
  • Friendly to the environment.
  • Many of these plastic boxes are made from recycled materials unlike many cardboard boxes that are made from trees.
  • You wouldn’t have to bother about how to get rid of them after moving and unpacking.
  • The companies that provide these boxes will pick them up at your doorstep.
  • Best of all? they are cheaper than cardboard boxes!

But where exactly can you get these alternative to moving boxes?
