Rent Moving Boxes and Save Time and Money

Posted on by

If you’ve done your fair share of moving around the Bay Area, you know how difficult it can be. You get your apartment or home packed up, try to move it in weak, bulging cardboard boxes and, between the threat of the boxes breaking and the threat of everything in them getting damaged, you end up with a very stressful affair that takes way more time than it should.

Brute Box moving boxes provide an option that’s both environmentally friendly and friendlier on you. They rent moving boxes that are made out of industrial strength plastic, and that means a lot when you’re trying to make your move as fast and efficient as possible.

Dispense with the Lumps

First and foremost, using plastic moving boxes makes it a lot easier to deal with awkward loads. The boxes are designed to be very durable, which means that you don’t have to worry about the sides tearing out, the bottoms falling out or the other frustrations that tend to go along with moving using cardboard boxes.

If you’ve ever tried to move during San Francisco’s rainy months, you know full well how fast a cardboard box can turn to mush and how quickly your valuables can go from a neatly organized box to a mess on the street. Plastic moving boxes, not only offer better durability, but also offer you the security of a positively-closing lid that keeps the elements out.

When you stack them on your moving truck, you’ll also find that the fit together perfectly, avoiding awkward stacks in the back of a truck. Take your moving truck up or down the hills in San Francisco or Oakland, or on the freeway to San Jose, and you’ll be glad you don’t hear your valuables shifting around in back, getting ready to fall and suffer damage. With plastic crates that are designed to be stacked together and that fit together in a regular, standardized way, you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to fit everything in the truck, car or however else you’re getting your possessions to your new home.

Let’s Talk Green

Ideally, if you were to use cardboard moving boxes, you’d recycle them or reuse them when you were done. Being honest about it, however, while these would be the best solutions, they’re not always viable.

Once you’ve moved, cardboard boxes tend to be pretty beat up and no one wants to put their valuables in a box that’s likely to fail. Of course, where are you going to store those boxes until the next time you move? They create a fire hazard, they take up space and, the entire time they’re stored, they degrade.

Throwing them away is equally bad. Landfills don’t really let things decompose, so they end up taking up a lot of space and becoming pure waste. Recycling might be an option, unless they’re so damaged and degraded that it’s not worth the effort.

Plastic boxes, however, can be used over and over again and you don’t even have to buy them. Brute Box Moving rents them to you. You use them to complete your move, return them and you never have to worry about them again. It’s the ultimate recycling, as the boxes can be used by many different people and, because they’re made to hold up to a lot of abuse, they’re just a more sensible solution all around.

For your belongings, for your pocketbook and for the earth in general, plastic moving boxes just make more sense. They can hold up to many moves and, whenever you need them, Brute Box Moving will be here to make sure you have as many as you need!
