Cardboard is expensive, wasteful, and old school. And sometimes mold-school!

But plastic moving boxes are economical, eco-friendly, and revolutionary. This is the future of moving!

“This is the first time moving that I didn’t have to fight with packing tape! These plastic bins are super easy to pack and unpack without having to deal with knives and tape. Plus, I saved a bunch of money – buying cardboard boxes would’ve been much more expensive.”

Dave S., Chicago

“I hate being wasteful – and cardboard is very wasteful! Box Beaters was a great solution. Their reusable plastic bins are really sturdy and stackable. I used less bins than cardboard boxes, and the dollies they provided were easy to maneuver. When I was done unpacking at my new place, the Box Beaters team came and picked up the bins for free. I’ll definitely use them again next time I move!”

Maggie H., Evanston

“Want an easy move? Rent Box Beaters! Their customer service is great, and they delivered and picked up within my requested windows. Their big plastic bins make life much, much easier when you have to move!”

Mary R., Chicago

Our plastic moving bins were designed by elite moving specialists to be sturdy and stackable. The lids latch together and open easily, so unpacking doesn’t require any box cutters or getting tangled up in tape. And our steel – not plastic – dollies are included in the box rental price!


Look, it’s pretty simple: cardboard stinks. We need to leave it in the dust along with floppy disks and rotary phones.

Plastic moving boxes are better on so many levels. Check out our Awesome Table of Comparison.
