Commonly Asked Questions

Hiring the boxes is cheaper than buying the boxes. You can hire the boxes if you need them for less than 3 months. After the 3 month period, you forfeit the deposit you pay upfront on the moving boxes, and we no longer collect the boxes. When you hire the moving boxes, we drop them off to you and then once you have finished with them, we come and pick them up. Hiring also means you don’t have to worry about disposing of the boxes after you move.
We deliver our packing boxes and moving materials in the metro areas of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and the Gold Coast. If you call up early in the morning, we may be able to deliver the same day, simply ask us and we can check with the driver. Failing that, we should be able to deliver the next day, you simply select a convenient 2 hour delivery window and we will drop them off then. And no, you don’t need to be home when we make the delivery if there is somewhere safe to leave the packing boxes.
Unfortunately not as we are a delivery-only business. We don’t have a storefront. However, we can generally deliver super-fast – so give us a call on 1300 858 446 to see when we can get the boxes to you. Alternatively, enter your postcode into the section at the top of this page to see the available delivery days and times.

Thanks to Google I found Hire A Box. I called them initially, no wait in a long queue and the guy that assisted me was so friendly. I knew straight away I was onto a good company. After ordering online I chose one of the 2-hour time slots available for delivery. The driver was 3 minutes early which was very impressive. He was SO friendly and helpful, providing a demonstration and loaded the tape machine for me because I didn't know how it worked. He also explained how to organise pick-up of the boxes too. I have no hesitation in recommending this company. Thanks Hire A Box....

I have used Hire a Box when I first moved 6 years ago, so had them in mind again when I was looking for a solution to finding boxes for my next move. The online form is very easy to fill out and I love that I can get all the extras, such as mattress covers, from the same site.Delivery was on time and organised. The staff are friendly and explain the details clearly. A great idea and a great company. I wouldn't use anyone else now that I know about Hire a Box. Thanks for taking some of the stress out of moving 🙂

A wonderful experience so far! I had a set of boxes delivered to my door on a very rainy Adelaide day. The person doing the delivery rang to double check my verandah was under cover (I wasn't home at the time of delivery). Unfortunately I missed her call and I was a bit worried on the way home that they might be getting wet! Fortunately she had stacked the boxes so neatly and tidily on my tiny verandah that they were well out of the weather. The boxes are in great condition.

Cheapest Moving Boxes Delivered Next Day To Your Door

Hire A Box boxes are extremely cost-effective. You generally save around 30% when hiring our packing boxes as opposed to getting them from a removalist or expensive box shop. As we are an online business we don’t have any the expenses of a traditional retail store and hence pass on the savings to our moving customers. Not only are our boxes cheap, our delivery service is ultra-convenient. Our drivers are on the road everyday so if they can’t deliver your moving boxes to you the same day, rest assured you can get them the next day. You can also choose a convenient 2 hour deliver window or choose for us to leave them somewhere safe so you don’t have to sit around waiting all day. We don’t use couriers or Australia Post, our own staff personally deliver your boxes.

Australian-Made Good Quality Packing Boxes – For Moving Or Storage

All our packing boxes are made in Australian from superior grade virgin cardboard. This means they don’t fall apart when you fill them up and also last when stacking in the truck or for storage purposes. We don’t sell those flimsy packing boxes many of our competitors sell.
