Second-hand boxes for moving
Now that we’ve covered the free cardboard boxes options, let’s move onto the used moving boxes.
Gumtree is a treasure trove of free items, including second-hand boxes for moving. You can set the filters only for your area, and you can also buy and sell things if that’s more up your alley. You found what you needed? Good, just don’t forget to thoroughly inspect the boxes before taking them. Keep an eye out for any insects, wet spots or tears.
Freegle is a place where you can give away basically anything you don’t need and you are not alone. All of the UK uses the website to give away items ranging from forks and knives to old furniture. And, guess what? Used moving boxes are on the menu, as well.
Another place that offers a good variety. However, we encourage our readers to have realistic expectations because, let’s be honest, free things are often of low quality. Free cardboard boxes might do more damage than you expect.
Social media community groups
Social media community groups can be very helpful for many things, including finding cardboard boxes for moving. You can start by browsing these places:

Free boxes from neighbours and friends who have recently moved
A friend in need is a friend indeed! If you have friends or neighbours who have moved recently, you can take a load off their shoulders by reusing their moving boxes. What’s more, the boxes might be in good condition, unless your friends don’t care for the state of their belongings.
Where to buy shipping boxes?
If you have exhausted all other possibilities, you can try buying used moving boxes for under £1 on Sadler’s website. Take all precautions before buying and purchase only boxes you feel certain will do the job.
Affordable moving boxes
You’re probably going to pay a professional removals company for transportation anyway, so why not spare yourself the additional work and simply add the packing and box delivery services to your query as well.
A professional removals company knows how to keep things intact and deliver them safely. The man with a van service we offer comes with full insurance when the professionals pack your belongings before the move.
