Rent Boxes For Moving

Why Rent Boxes for Moving?

When you are getting ready to move there are so many things you have to consider. One thing that shouldn’t be an issue is where you find your moving boxes. In the last year there has been an influx of companies that rent boxes for moving and we think this is a great idea! Why go through all the time and hassle of finding moving boxes when you can have them dropped off at your house and then picked up after you have moved into your new home! Best of all, they are great for the environment and COST EFFECTIVE! We have compiled some common questions and answers below about renting moving boxes!


  1. Rental moving boxes are made of plastic. Why are they better for the environment?
    • Even though the rental moving boxes are made from plastic, they are used and reused HUNDREDS of times. In contrast, cardboard moving boxes can only be used twice (at most) before they have to be discarded.
  2. How do they work?
    • When you rent boxes for moving, from a company like Rent Box Move, you order the boxes and they are delivered right to your door! Once you pack them up, call your friendly neighborhood movers at Student Movers and then Rent Box Move will pick them up once they are unpacked in your new home! Easy peasy 🙂
  3. Is it expensive to rent boxes?
    • We don’t think so! Box rentals are a great way to save you time and money. All rental boxes come preassembled with great features like durable handles and self closing tops. This allows the boxes to be easily stacked and the durability prevents boxes from breaking.
  4. Are there different sizes of boxes?
    • Yes! Most companies provide a few different sizes of boxes to fit your needs!
  5. Can you rent moving boxes for office moves? 
    • Yes! Renting moving boxes is a great idea for office moves. Our friends at Rent Box Move can help you customize a package for your needs depending on the number of people and square footage of your space. Furthermore, it is the perfect solution for office moves because you don’t have to dispose of the pesky moving boxes when you’re done!
  6. Is there a company you recommend?
    • Yes! Student Movers has found an incredible partnership with Rent Box Move. They are a wonderful company with competitive pricing and the same focus on customer satisfaction and quality customer service that we pride ourselves on! We strongly recommend you check out Rent Box Move!

What is a DDT?

DDT sounds like you’re being charged double for drive time but that’s a mistake! The California Public Utilities Commission requires all moving companies to charge DDT on hourly rated moves. DDT means you are charged for the time between the old house (origin) and the new house and the moving company is responsible for the drive time between the warehouse and the origin. DDT actually SAVES you money!
