Moving can be pretty expensive just in the supplies you need to move, alone. The packing tape and the boxes can get pretty pricey, but they aren’t just things that allow you to move things from one place to another, they actually control the shifting so that your things don’t get broken and ruined during the moving process. You may feel tempted to seek out boxes from grocery and liquor stores, but the boxes that you purchase are actually made well enough to ship your items.
- A home move might cost several hundred dollars for boxes, packing tape, and other supplies.
- Boxes loaded into a truck compensate for shifting weight during the drive, making damage less likely.
- If items are broken and new boxes were used, an insurance claim is less likely to be denied.
“If you are moving a kitchen, an apartment, or a home, you are better off buying boxes.”
