About Box Save
Box Save, LLC rents moving boxes and supplies in the Greater Boston area.
Frequently Asked Questions
1Is Box Save a moving company?
We are not a moving company. Box Save delivers the boxes to you. You or a professional mover packs and moves, and we pick the boxes up on the other side.
2I'm hiring a moving company. Can I still use Box Save?
Yes. Professional movers prefer our boxes because they are standardized, strong and stackable. Also, there's no taping or assembly at the beginning, and no box cutting and disposal at the end of the move.
3What is the environmental impact of reusable plastic boxes instead of disposable cardboard boxes?
Reusable plastic boxes are manufactured once and then used again and again, up to 500 times before being recycled. Cardboard boxes are used once or twice before getting thrown away. Sometimes they are recycled which requires additional energy and water, or they are incinerated or landfilled. Producing 1 ton of cardboard uses the following resources: 17 trees 79 gallons of oil 7000 gallons of water 42,000 kilowatts of energy Recycling cardboard takes 75% of the energy needed to make new cardboard.
4When do cardboard boxes make sense?
Box Save boxes are great for local moves within the Greater Boston area. If you're doing a long-distance move, cardboard boxes make sense. Cardboard boxes also make sense for long-term storage, including if you want a couple boxes in your attic or basement that will stay sealed for years before you throw them out.
