* Delivery on hire jobs is free when you hire $65 worth of our packing boxes. When buying our cardboard packing boxes, delivery is free when you buy $99 worth. When hiring boxes, the expiry period is 3 months from the original date of delivery – after this period you forfeit the deposit and the moving boxes nor other items will be collected or deposits refunded. Please note our moving boxes are made from strong, durable cardboard which means they can generally be hired out several times and still be fit for purpose, i.e. boxes for moving! Whether you are looking for storage boxes or plain old cardboard boxes, at Hire A Box, you are sure to be left satisfied with your purchase. When you rent or buy boxes with Hire A Box, rest assured our boxes are stronger and cheaper than many of our competitors including Bunnings boxes.

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. In addition to being able to hire the moving boxes, we give you the option to buy new or second hand boxes if hiring does not suit you. 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.

Hire Or Buy – Great For The Environment And For Your Convenience

Hire A Box are the number 1 choice for hundreds of schools, businesses and government organisations due to the fact that you can hire our moving boxes. We drop them to you, let you keep them for up to 3 months and then collect them once you have finished with them. Not only is it great for the environment, but it is also very convenient as you don’t have to worry about disposing of the boxes. You can also choose to buy new or second hand moving boxes if hiring doesn’t suit you.
