The Best Places to Buy Packing Supplies

Whether you’re packing up for a big move or just putting some stuff into storage, one thing’s for sure. You’re going to need a lot of supplies! Here at Elite Self Storage we know that having the right tools for the job is everything. Having the right packing supplies on hand will make your move easier and less stressful. Here’s a look at where you can buy the moving supplies that you need.

A Mover

A typical moving company, essentially any company that’s willing to rent you a truck, will generally sell moving supplies like boxes. They may be less expensive than those found at an office supply store, but they’re still not usually the least expensive packing supplies that you can find. A mover generally knows that you’re not going to want to make multiple stops, so upping the price on some of its products is a move that they can certainly get away with.

Online Stores

Some online stores sell boxes and other moving supplies. Some of these organizations recycle and offer green pedigree that you might appreciate, while others just try to keep prices as low as possible. Some online vendors could be a good option depending on how long they take to ship and when you’ll need your packing supplies by.


Sometimes you can find free or cheap moving supplies on Craigslist. Often these supplies have been used already, but if they’re still in good shape they can probably handle another move into your new space or storage unit. If you want to go this route you’ll want to check up on Craigslist ads a while in advance to try and find what you’re looking for.
