Moving takes a long time to deal with if you’re not properly prepared, however you should do your best to stick to whatever plan you have in mind. When you’re done with the move itself you will likely feel obliged to either throw the boxes away or use them for something else, however you can deal with them in a much more appropriate manner than just throwing them away. The following tips will give you the basics of what you can do to recycle them or give them a chance to be used again. Let’s begin with the first one on our list:
- Check in with a box broker, as they could give you a chance to sell your used boxes so they can be reused again by someone else. Many companies have representatives in different cities around, so check your local possibilities via the internet.
- If you live in the U.S., you’ll be able to use the services of places such as BoxCycle or their equivalents elsewhere. This would be a great opportunity to list your boxes for sale or even buy boxes should you have need of them. The way the market is going, these types of services provide a second life to the otherwise usually one-shot, one-use pattern followed by most people when it comes to boxes.
- Check out the best moving companies you worked with and see whether they have a chance to use them in some way. Although this isn’t always a common option, in some cases they may allow you to give away boxes so they can be reused and in others the company itself may work with their own, rented plastic or cardboard boxes as well.
