Where to find moving boxes?

As the price of cardboard has risen around 30% the cost of moving boxes in the UK has increased considerably. With an average one bed flat needing 20/30 boxes, you could be looking at anywhere from £80-£120 for boxes!

In this article G Williams will suggest places to try and obtain boxes from free or at a low cost.


Supermarket retailers are an excellent source for free moving boxes; some of the bigger superstores will get deliveries on a daily basis and are often eager to off-load their unwanted boxes to free up space in their store room.

Relatives and Friends

There is an old saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. You may be surprised at the number of responses a social media post or a message in a WhatsApp group chat may generate.

You can often find someone advertising free removal boxes on Facebook marketplace, having just moved home themselves.


Most storage centre sell boxes and other packing aids. You do not need to be using their facility to make use of the offers available.

Both sites have a wide range to choose from and at prices to meet your budget and requirements, normally with a quick delivery time.

If you would like any further advice or would like help with your move feel free to contact G Williams.
