Frequently Asked Questions

1Is Box Save a moving company?
We are not a moving company. We deliver the boxes to you. You or a professional mover packs and moves, and we pick them up at your new location.
2I'm hiring a moving company. Can I still use Box Save?
Yes. Many 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. Cardboard boxes make sense for long-distance moves, moves where boxes are going to multiple locations and would be hard to pick up at a single location, and for long-term storage when moisture isn't an issue.
