People move house for numerous reasons. For many, it means moving to a bigger or better home, purchasing a new place, taking up a new job away from home, moving in with a partner, or having a lifestyle change. For others, moving may be associated with a relationship breakdown, family conflict or being given notice by their landlord.
For whatever reason, the average Australian will move a total of 10-15 times during their lifetime, about once every 5 years. For a family of four, the average number of moving boxes used per move, is around 50, for a single person it is about 10. This means, that on average, each person uses around 100 – 750 moving boxes in a life-time. Multiply that by the population of Australia – we are talking a lot of boxes.
Reduce – Reuse – Recycle while Moving
Every single relocation seems to produce a lot of waste as many people use moving as an opportunity to get rid of belongings that are no longer used or needed. Instead of simply throwing out old items, hold a garage sale, sell online or donate to a charity.
To securely pack your personal belongings, you can hire our reusable Packing Crates, Wardrobe Boxes and TV-Covers, reducing your environmental waste and making your packing/unpacking process a lot faster, cheaper and easier. The crates will be delivered to your current home, you pack, move, unpack and the empty crates will be picked up from your new residence. They will then be cleaned and re-used many times over. You will be left with NO waste to dispose of.
