Moving, much like death and taxes, is unavoidable. Everyone moves at least once; most of us will move several times. And each move requires boxes. Lots and lots of boxes. So shouldn’t those boxes be great at protecting your stuff while also protecting the environment? We think so. We also think that you shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to get those boxes – maybe just a pinky. It seemed to us that someone should offer an environmentally and budget friendly alternative to those cardboard moving boxes – and Lend A Box® was born. Here is why we think you will love moving with Lend A Box®:
- Everyone needs to be happy!
It’s hard to be happy about packing up and moving your stuff. But we’re here to help! We will deliver our boxes to you and pick them up when you’re done. You won’t need to go to the store, buy the boxes, take them home, assemble them, break them down when you’re done with your move, and dispose of them. We think that the time and effort you save by using Lend A Box® will go a long way to putting a smile on your face. And that smile is important to us – our reputation is as important as our product, so we strive to provide excellent customer service to each client.
- We care about the Environment!
Cardboard boxes aren’t good for the environment. Even if you recycle them, you can only use them 2 or 3 times at the most before the integrity of the boxes are compromised. Then they head off to the recycling center, which consumes more energy and water resources, or (gasp!) the landfill. Our boxes are made from 100% recyclable plastic and can be used hundreds of times before being made into new boxes. And it requires less energy and fewer resources to make our box than a cardboard one! We strive to make sure that our other products don’t adversely impact the environment. Our suppliers care as much about the environment as we do.
- We provide an affordable alternative to cardboard boxes!
Our container rental prices are comparable to the costs associated for buying cardboard boxes from national chains, but ours will not collapse and crush your stuff. You don’t need to worry about assembly beforehand or deconstruction and disposal afterwards, as you would with cardboard boxes.
- We know that cardboard boxes aren’t cool!
In fact, they are kind of gross. Why move your stuff in something that can get crushed or wet or moldy? Not to mention the bugs and rodents that love to make cardboard boxes their homes. Our boxes are crush-proof and won’t let moisture or critters get inside and on your stuff, thus eliminating the yuck factor in moving boxes.
- Companies should share their success with the community!
We donate a percentage of our profits to and share our boxes with local charities. We also collect non-perishable food items to donate to local food banks. Please let us know if you have a favorite charity that might benefit from working with Lend A Box®!
We are proud of who we are and the services we provide. We hope that we make your moving experience as pleasant and stress-free as possible. Let’s move to a better environment together!
