Going Green

Going green and saving the enviroment is what Maryland Movers is all about.

At Maryland Movers, we want to make everyone aware of simple efforts that makes a big difference in our enviroment.

Free used boxes - We offer free used boxes for all of our valued customers. Free boxes can be picked up from our warehouse in Baltimore, MD.  If you would like to pick up boxes, please give us a call so we can get you scheduled. ALL FREE USED BOXES pick-ups must be SCHEDULED.

At the end of your move, we will pick up any boxes that are in decent condition and reusable. If for some reason we are unable to pick-up the boxes, we kindly ask that you contact your local recycling center for your for your county to find out how to properly dispose of the boxes.

Here are some tips that can help avoid to pay the expensive prices of new packing materials:

Craigslist. A quick search in the free section (found underneath the "for sale" heading) offered up at least 20 sources for free boxes.

Liquor stores. Try and ask for boxes with lids (otherwise, contents are bound to fall out in the moving truck). Boxes from a liquor store tend to be small and sturdy--great for books, CDs and DVDs.

Bookstores. A perfect place to pick up boxes specifically for moving books.

Grocery Stores. Ask them to save their apple boxes for you to pickup--these freebies are perfect for moving fragile items.

McDonald's fry boxes. We spotted this solution from an Apartment Therapy reader. We were curious about this alternative and dug a little deeper. Apparently, these boxes are strong and also excellent for hauling heavy items that require a smaller sized box. Because the original contents of the box are frozen, you won't have to worry about the boxes being smelly (or greasy).

Starbucks. Because Starbucks boxes range in size,

U-haul Box Exchange. U-haul has created a message board allowing you to search by location for free boxes in your area.
