How boxes and moving supplies save you money
There's no way around it -- moving can be expensive even if you do it yourself (sometimes much MORE expensive if you do it yourself!) Fortunately, there are numerous ways you can reduce the cost and save lots of money -- potentially thousands of dollars...
One great way to save money is to ensure that everything that can be boxed is boxed. The reason is probably obvious -- the fewer "things" your Truck Buddies need to pick up and transport to/from the truck, the faster the job goes. When the job goes fast, you save money!
Also, getting similarly sized boxes reduces the amount of time we have to "play Tetris." When all the boxes are the same size and shape (or just two or three sizes), we can load a truck in as much as half the time.
Don't buy -- Rent Our Boxes!
And we've got you covered with the best possible solution I've found: It's RentOurBoxes.com. Bill Burris started the American operations for Rent Our Boxes (it was originally founded in Australia.) He came to DC, tested the concept, saw that it worked, and partnered with My Truck Buddy and other reputable companies to help expand the business. When it came time to take the franchising concept further, he offered to sell us the DC franchise. Since we loved it so much, we bought it!
We deliver them right to your door -- for free.
Free pick-up. This is perhaps the best benefit of all -- we pick up the boxes when you're done with them!
In addition, ROB boxes are the highest quality I've found. I used to use a couple of online wholesalers and while their obxes were alright, they weren't the best. (Their wardrobe boxes, for example, would crumple under moderate weights). Our boxes are also specially designed to stack perfectly in trucks like ours, which we appreciate. You'll appreciate that, too, because it makes the whole process go much faster. (Less time "playing Tetris" with different sizes and styles of boxes).
So if you need boxes and packing supplies, but don't have the time to scour the city and Craigslist to find them, let us literally do the heavy lifting for you. You can order a kit from our DC Rent Our Boxes site. (Opens in a new window). And as always, feel free to write or call!
