Help: Where to Buy Packing/Moving Boxes?

Postby skimilk » Tue, 11 Sep 2007 3:07 am

I'm moving flats end of this month. I don't have furniture or appliances or any other big/bulky items although I do have lots of books, shoes, bags and other girly stuff.

I don't really need a truck to move my things so I'm hiring a container van type thing. Only problem is, they don't provide packing boxes. Any idea where I could get these? Hopefully one with delivery service that doesn't cost more than the actual purchase.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

:)

Hi ,
Sorry I dont know where to buy shipping boxes but I would like to get information on the rate and company you use? I am moving out of Singapore with approximately 10+ heavy boxes for clothes, kitchenware and books.

And also where to sell big item furnitures if you have done that could you please advise?

many thanks!

I didn't use their moving services so I don't know about their rates but this is where I got my boxes and stuff: www.movingessentials.com.sg

It's easy to order online and the prices are quite reasonable I think.

What kind of furniture do you have for sale? Have you tried selling them here on classifieds.singaporeexpats.com ?

Except for the $30 delivery charge :(

Before I got to that point, I thought I have actually found a first normal eshop in SG

Was looking around for moving boxes for my new office too and chanced upon this site.

Am considering to buy a large cardboard box at ~$5. But I really only need to use it for that 2 weeks of moving and I find it a pity to throw them away afterwards.

Any where to rent moving boxes? In good condition at least?

I came across this moving box rental service in Singapore called http://www.treecrate.com/. Seems like a creative idea, any one tried before?
