Spotlight On: Hire A Box!

Things have been mighty hectic around here for the last couple of months, what with multiple Birthdays, my son's Party, Father's Day, anniversary celebrations and the Royal Show, but I've almost made it through! I'm now enduring a five week long bathroom renovation process, and with all the house cleaning and preparations, a constant theme has been boxes. We have boxes everywhere! We've packed shizz in them, used them to move stuff, organise products and store things in until we have a bathroom and linenpress cupboard back! What can I say? Those cardboard cubes are useful! Which brings me to Hire A Box.

You may remember my post about Hire A Mover in July, well Hire A Box and Hire A Mover are part of the Hire Group, along with Hire A Packer. If you're moving house it can be exciting (just ask my relocation-addicted Mother-In-Law), but also a lot of work, not to mention stress. I'm all for anxiety reduction, and anything that will lighten my workload, and that's where Hire A Box come in handy. You can hire or buy boxes from these guys, because honestly, what would be worse than running out of boxes mid-pack? OK, there are worse things (eg, Adam Sandler's entire filmography, with the exception of 'The Wedding Singer' and '50 First Dates' {I can't hate a Drew Barrymore movie, although she's pushing it with 'Blended'} and 'Punch-Drunk Love'), but still, it's a sub-optimal situation.

Have pots, pans, toys, shoes, linen and clothes? Opt for a heavy-duty large box. What about CD's, DVD's, crockery and books? A medium box is ideal for these heavier things, and will even accommodate your vast wine bottle collection (it can't just be me with a laundry full of Cabernet Sauvignon?). Then there's the small box, perfect to house what's left of my sanity. Haha, joking, there is no small box (and barely any sanity at this point either. LOL).

Take note, fashionistas, because here's an exciting fact: Hire A Box even have Porta-Robes, if your clothing collection rivals Carrie Bradshaw's and you want to transport those threads in a fancy 'hung up' position.

Hiring is a great option because it's 30% cheaper than buying, and you can use the boxes for up to three months, with no delivery fee if you need a second, top-up order. Hire A Box will even come and pick up your boxes after three months, just make sure your cats have climbed out before they take the boxes away. Because that cat is gonna be hella confused when it wakes up in a box warehouse next to this guy (see below). I, on the other hand, probs wouldn't complain. #sowrong

  5. I moved house recently and though I'd kept boxes from my move 4yrs before, most had gotten wet when our basement flooded a little. Fortunately however I borrowed a heap from a family friend who'd recently moved so I ended up not needing to buy or hire any - but it's a good idea!

  6. We have only just cleaned out our stash of boxes since moving in two years ago (we finally had a storage cupboard built). In fact, some of them are still waiting to be cut up to go into the recycling bin outside. Hiring sounds like a jolly good idea!

    1. Our bins fill up so fast, because we only have the small ones. Just filled up an entire skip with rubbish (and boxes)!

  7. That brought back memories of less than a year ago! That move, after our initial one from Sydney, was from the first house we rented on the Central Coast to this one. This time, the removalists GAVE us boxes at no cost as long as we used the tape as advised and they came back for them once we had unpacked. I already had the tape dispenser (how good are they!) and on the day, they brought the port a robes with them and I just had to take the clothes out on the day and return the boxes straight to them. We were blessed with these guys and not everyone is so lucky so I think this service is great too! Thanks for linking up. Denyse

  8. Having moved over 25 times, I know how important a good cardboard box can be! I'm pretty good at getting it done and even the pictures up on the walls by the end of the first day, with just a few non-important boxes to be opened. Learning to live with less helps a lot when you need to move. :)

    1. I certainly need to live with less, I dream of a minimalist home actually. So much clutter to get rid of! Getting your pictures up on the first day is amazing!

  9. Oh dear that will be a challenge when we go to move next time - both my cats love boxes. Playing in them, on them, under them, and chewing them to bits!

  12. No way, a wardrobe box?! How cool is that? Great way to move :) Glad I am not moving any time soon though, what a headache :)

    1. Haha, agree! I didn't even know wardrobe boxes existed!

  13. We've just started looking at houses for our next move early next year. Our 24th. I'm slightly over moving. Having reliable and consistently sized boxes is one of my biggest tips when moving. It can save you a lot of money in the long run. I love the idea of hiring as well. Saves all the hassle of what to do with the boxes when you are done. Gosh I hope I'm done with moving soon.

  16. We're planning on moving house. I will keep this in mind. Beats collecting boxes for months on end!

  17. Argh, I hate packing everything up but on the flip side, I LOVE unpacking my stuff again.

  18. Gah moving is such a pain in the butt! Will definitely consider this service if its 30% cheaper than buying, since we tend to give away our moving boxes when we're done anyways.

    1. That's nice of you :) Yeah, hiring is a great option!

  19. What a great idea! I'd love to hire all 3 the packers, the boxes and the movers! The best move we ever did was our longest from the UK down under, the movers came to our London flat with boxes, packed all our stuff and took it away and a few weeks later it just turned up magically in Australia! If only all moves were that easy!

    1. OMG that is magical! And the longest move I've ever heard of. Lucky nothing got lost! :)
