Moving House the Sustainable Way

Did you know that each year over 370,000 people move house in the UK? What do people need when they move house? Moving boxes of course! Unfortunately many people see removal boxes as a single use item, something that is used once before it gets thrown away, or recycled. So how can you ensure your house move has as little impact on the environment as possible?


Where to find removal boxes

If you go to a manufacturer, you can sometimes pick up a small number of brand new cardboard boxes but these are likely to be expensive.

Another option is to try to pick up some free boxes at your local supermarket, but these may not be the correct size or strength, particularly if you have any fragile or heavier items.

We understand that moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do. Once you’ve got through the difficult process of organising the move, finding packing boxes isn’t usually high on your list of priorities.

Luckily, there is a third option!


Try once used, sustainable moving boxes

Reuseabox provide truly sustainable removal boxes at low prices. These boxes are either once used or brand new, surplus stock such as overruns or misprints. Either way, they have been specifically sourced as heavy duty strong cardboard boxes, perfect for packing up your belongings.

Are used cardboard boxes suitable removal boxes?

Absolutely! All of our once used cardboard boxes go through a strict inspection process and only the very best are made available for re-sale. Once used packing boxes may be printed or contain the odd label, but they are clean, dry and perfectly reusable. Any boxes that do not make the grade are recycled locally.


For removal companies

We have long term supply contracts of large cardboard boxes, ideal for removal companies. These boxes can be bought in bulk on contract, allowing you to have a continuous supply of moving boxes for your customers. Choose from a range of once used or new surplus cardboard boxes, all sustainably sourced and low cost. Get in touch to learn more about our bulk order discounts.


For house movers

If you’re planning a solo office or house move, we also provide moving packs in sizes small, medium or large. Each pack contains a selection of medium and large cardboard boxes. You can even design your own moving pack to suit your requirements. We have wardrobe boxes and book boxes with handles for ease of carrying.


Packing tape, void fill and other goodies

For companies, we supply packing tape in bulk at discounted prices. All moving packs are provided with a free roll of tape. For the eco warriors out there, choose paper tape, which is recyclable and biodegradable.

If you’re looking for some eco-friendly void fill to protect your products during transit, why not use shredded cardboard? Easy to make and low cost, cardboard has excellent cushioning properties and will protect your products from any knocks and bumps during transit. It’s also 100% recyclable and compostable.


Reusable and Sustainable

We supply some of the UK’s largest removal companies who reuse our packing boxes a number of times. By reusing removal boxes, you can help to reduce the global demand for new paper which ultimately saves trees.

After your house move, don’t just push your unwanted moving boxes into the recycling bin. Save them for the next move, use them as storage boxes or offer them to a friend.
