Can't Find Empty Boxes? Buy Used Ones

Can't Find Empty Boxes? Buy Used Ones

We can hear the groaning already...BUY USED boxes??!! When you're in the market for empty boxes for moving, storing or sorting stuff, obviously the first places to check include friends, local merchants, Freecycle or Craigslist. But if those options fail and you're in a rush, you now have another alternative. Buy them from usedcardboardboxes.com. Here's how much it will cost for a pack of 20 medium sized boxes...

$41.00. This cost includes free shipping (sounds silly doesn't it, to ship empty shipping boxes) and 2 rolls of packing tape. Usedcardboardboxes.com buys the boxes from large companies who would otherwise be throwing out or prematurely recycling the boxes when they have plenty of life left in them.

Has anyone tried this service?
