Whilst there are companies out there that can help you pack your belongings for moving house, or will rent out boxes, most people would rather try and do this themselves for free. People are throwing out boxes all the time and if you know you’re going to move home soon, you can start collecting these in advance.
There are lots of community Facebook groups for towns and regions all over Australia, as well as buy swap sell pages. You can post in these groups to see if anyone else who has moved house recently and has spare boxes that they no longer need. This is win-win as someone won’t have to recycle these themselves now.
If this fails, you can also put the word out on your own newsfeed to see if any distant friends have recently moved and have spare boxes left over.
I’ve always known Bunnings Warehouse to have big supplies of free boxes which their products have arrived in that the public can take to put their shopping in. They generally don’t mind if you take them for other uses as well.
Other retail stores or grocery stores
If you have any friends that work in any kind of retail store or grocery story, ask them if they can start bringing home spare boxes for you. If you don’t have anyone you can ask, you could probably ask a staff member on duty if there’s any way you can get some empty boxes from out the back.
Alternative to boxes
If you have lots of clothes, you could put these in garbage bags for transporting to your new home. Just be sure that no one throws them out. If you have suitcases or other travel bags you can also put items in those.
