Best place to buy moving boxes

Can someone recommend a good place to buy big moving boxes... at least somewhat cheaply?

I brought home 15 boxes but thats not going to be enough as I have more crap than I thought. Chat Icon

Do any of the big stores have them (like Home Depot?)

Someplace like that would be ideal so my wife can find it easily.


Thanks!

Re: Best place to buy moving boxes

you can buy new or "used" boxes from a moving company. The "used" boxes have usually been used once, and no strength is compromised.

They're pretty cheap!

(I took this post to mean that you actually want MOVING boxes...not boxes from a liquor store, or Costco, right?)

Re: Best place to buy moving boxes

you have a good idea in getting good boxes...they can be used for storage (attic/basement) later on!

(like the 12 christmas boxes we have Chat Icon)

Re: Best place to buy moving boxes

when I moved out of my co-op, i bought this and I picked it up from their little warehouse in farmingdale... the guy threw in extra boxes at no charge and said I could come back for more if i needed it, he was great.

UHaul boxes are awesome! They are really sturdy and won't fall apart. I also used a lot of the file boxes from Staples for smaller stuff, because they have handles built in and are a good size to keep for later storage.
