Say Goodbye to Cardboard Moving Boxes

Updated: Feb 3, 2020

Moving is never fun, especially packing (and unpacking)! The traditional cardboard moving box is often time-consuming to use and leaves your stuff susceptible to damage. In addition, most cardboard boxes can only be used a few times before they break down. If you are looking for a more efficient and eco-friendly alternative to cardboard, consider using durable plastic bins.

In the Northern Virginia/ DC Metro area, there is a company called Lend-A-Box that rents plastic bins for moving and storage. They have several different sizes, including kitchen kits for dishes and glasses. You can book online and get free delivery and pick-up within their service area. Check them out at and let them know you heard about it from Solutions for Stuff.

I've had several clients use Lend-A-Box and recently used them for my own move!
