Rental Box Pick-up

RENT JOE BOXES knows boxes and packing. Our years of experience resulted in the creation of three different sized boxes that will make packing, stacking and unpacking a breeze. Our custom-made cardboard boxes are to be packed and un-packed with the RENT JOE BOXES logo turned right side up. Start by taping the bottom of the box first, ensuring the RENT JOE BOXES logo will be right side up when you start packing.

“Little Joe” Moving Box

17″X13″X13″

Perfect for heavy items such as books, magazines, CD’s, DVD’s, dinnerware and glassware.

“MoJoe” Moving Box

17″X16″X26″

Use for light, bulky items such as pots and pans, electrical appliances, clothes that are not on a hanger, shoes, toys, linens, bedding, pillows and cushions.

“Joe Wardrobe” Box

20″X24″X39″ (includes bar)

Move whatever is hanging in your closet directly to the box; suits, dresses, slacks, sport coats and winter coats.

Our Wardrobe Boxes are also perfect for your table lamps and lamp shades and save you even more money and space.

Wrapping & Packing Tips

Get prepared – Packing is mostly good old common sense. Heavy items at the bottom of the box and lighter weight items at the top. First, clear a large area of a table or bench top for wrapping items.

Dinnerware & Glassware – White wrapping paper, also known as butcher’s paper, is idea for wrapping dinnerware and glassware. Newspaper should not be used for wrapping because the ink is messy and sometimes stains. Newspaper is best used for padding on the bottom of boxes and for filling in. To wrap dinner, salad and bread plates, place the plate on the middle portion of the paper and fold a corner of the paper over to cover the plate. Place another plate of the same size on top and fold the other corner over. Keep repeating that process until the paper is completely used. This will prevent paper waste.

Don’t wrap with newspaper! – Many times while unpacking, belongings inadvertently end up in a trashcan. To avoid this happening, use wrapping paper for wrapping items and newspaper only for padding and filler. Before throwing away butcher’s paper, inspect every piece to ensure no items are left in the paper. The messy newspaper can be thrown away without inspection.

Glass & Fragile Items – To avoid breakage and crushing, always put heavier items toward the bottom of the box and the lighter, fragile items toward the top. To protect cups, glasses and ornaments, wrap each loosely, making each puffy, as air space between the items; the paper cushions the movement. Pack cups, glassware and lighter items toward the top of the box. Check the weight of each box as you pack making sure it doesn’t get too heavy. Leave approximately one inch at the top of the box; the empty space cushions fragile items when the box is taped shut.

Books – Pack books only into the smaller boxes because books become very heavy. Continually check the weight of the box as you’re packing to ensure it doesn’t become too heavy. Beware of packing too many encyclopaedias or magazines together; they become very heavy, very quickly.

Bedding – For each bed in your new home, put a clean set of sheets, pillows and pillowcases into a plastic bag in your car so beds can be made as soon as the beds are assembled. The last thing you will want to do is search for bedding after a long day of moving and unpacking.

Plants – Potted plants can make a mess if they are wet when you move. Water them two days before the move, and then let them dry. Otherwise, water can run through the moving truck and damage boxes, and/or mattresses that may be sitting on the floor of the truck. If it looks like rain before you pack the truck, move the potted plants so they do not get wet. Once you move, give them a drink of water.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Jayme M.
I utilized Rent Our Boxes for my last move from Uptown to International Market Square and was highly impressed with their level of professionalism. I recently had surgery so wasn’t looking forward to going and picking up boxes, etc. and then having to dispose of after my move. The owner (Joe) came and delivered the boxes and even brought them all the way up to my apartment. They seem more durable than the average one’s you purchase from your local retailer. After I was done with the move I gave his service a call and they promptly set up a time to come pick up the boxes.

I would definitely recommend this service to anyone facing an upcoming move. This service is a cheaper alternative to purchasing boxes outright while also being environmentally friendly as the boxes are re-used.

Bottom Line – Great Experience!!

I needed a bunch of boxes for a small move. I considered getting free boxes from grocery stores or trash cans, but it would have taken me days to gather enough. Then I considered buying from U-Haul, but I’d have to then dispose of them myself. It occurred to me that there must be a better way. I found Rent Joe Boxes via a web search and decided to try. The service was perfect, the boxes clean and sturdy. The packing supplies awesome. Most importantly, I didn’t waste a single box or sheet of paper. I’d recommend the service to anyone looking for an easy and responsible way to handle a move.

One thing I hate to do more than anything is move, and I seem to do it more often than I’d like. That said one of the things I hate most about it is gathering enough boxes, and buying them is more expensive than it really should be for some flimsy boxes that aren’t much sturdier than a wet pizza box. So when I was researching movers I came across Rent Joe Boxes and figured I’d give them a try. I’m glad I did. Calling to schedule delivery of the boxes was easy, and we’ve got plenty of them. I imagine when we’re done with them that scheduling their pickup will be just as easy. The boxes we got are quite sturdy. They’ve clearly been through a couple moves already based on the leftover tape, but they’re still plenty strong and I have no concerns whatsoever about their ability to hold heavier loads or get punctured by dog-and-cat-antics. Give them a try, they took a lot of stress out of our upcoming move!

OK, this was the most awesome solution to the moving conundrum. Where to get boxes? Joe delivered them. Stuff stays in boxers for years? Gotta return the boxes in 90 days, so get the junk unpacked. Hate recycling? Joe picks up the boxes. PLUS, cheaper than buying boxes! Fantastic!

Called Joe – set up pickup time – Joe comes & gets boxes – I sign for them as he carries them out to the van – DONE. The only way this could have improved is teleportation. Really. I will use Joe again. And he couldn’t be nicer.

Needed a bunch of boxes for rather large move within the cities. Called up Rent Joe Boxes and had everything I needed the next day. The boxes seem sturdier and of a higher quality than those for sale at other retailers. Even the roll of packing paper was superior to those found elsewhere. Had plenty of time to get everything unpacked once moved. We weren’t in a mad rush to get everything unpacked–definitely helped ease the stress of the move. Once all the boxes were unpacked, Joe came out the next day and picked up all the boxes. It’s great not having to worry about disposing of all the boxes I needed. Highly recommended!
