Why Plastic Vs. Cardboard?

​Because reusing and reducing are even more important than recycling. Recycling takes lots of energy, and did you know that cardboard boxes that have excessive glue or tape can’t even be recycled? To the landfill they go! Our bins are infinitely reusable. Another little-known fact: bedbugs love cardboard! So beware of those boxes you pick up from the street.

What Size Are The Bins?

27″L x 17″W x 12″H. These bins are the perfect size for moving everything from books to dishes to clothes to other household items. Anything smaller would be pointless and for anything bigger you’d have to recruit an Ironman to move it for you. Learn more about our bins here. We also have wardrobe bins that you can add to your package. These are 24.5″L x 20.6″W x 48″H and come with a rod for hanging clothes so you don’t have to mess with taking them on and off the hangers.

How Many Bins Should I Get?

We’ve set up packages based on number of bedrooms and the “average” mover. You have an option to add additional bins after you’ve chosen a package.So, if you’re a hoarder, you should add a couple extra and if you’re a minimalist, perhaps take a step down.
