Are you hiring a removals company? When we moved, we hired boxes from our removals company - we had to pay for them, but we then got over half of the cost back when we returned the boxes after we moved.

Try a local bookshop. They often have to pay to have them removed so you'd be doing them a favour. Wine boxes are good too. (The ones bottles come in not the ones with a tap - but they are also good in their own way)
