I've seen a few companies online, is there any one someone can recommend as being good value?

I am giving away the packing boxes we've just used on freecycle, is it worth looking there?

good suggestion, thanks!

We were lucky in that my OH works somewhere with a warehouse where we can pick up used boxes no problem so can't help otherwise with an online recommendation I'm afraid.

We used ebay, £1 each - get double walled boxes for packing.

We asked at our local supermarket and shops - they kept them for us over a few days and we collected. Got enough for our large families move. We then passed them on to friends for their move. They then gumtree-d them for free.

We got some from the supermarket too but they weren't strong enough to stack and were only of use for the lightest items.

we got lots from freecycle, have you got that in your area? try googling it. we gave them away afterwards too, brilliant for someone else and us.

I got some cheap ones from Staples - serves me right, handles went through all over the place, their double walled ones much better
