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, Adelaide and Perth. 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.
You can either place your order online here, and pay for it using a Mastercard, Visa card or Debit Visa card. If you can not use one of these cards, you can pay for your order via Electronic funds Transfer (EFT). If you are paying via EFT you will need to contact the office to make your booking. Online bookings can be made 24 hours a day. Alternatively, place your order by calling our Call Centre on 1300 858 446 between the hours of 8.30am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time Monday to Friday. Please note orders that are being paid for by EFT can not be delivered until approximately 24-48 hours after the time the payment has been made as the funds need to be cleared in the bank prior to your order being dispatched.
All initial orders qualify for one free top-up delivery and one free pick up as long as the top-up and pick-up orders are placed within 3 months of the initial delivery. For hire jobs, delivery is free when you hire packing boxes or tape dispensers to the value of $65.00 inc. GST or over. For sale jobs, delivery is free when you buy packing boxes and/or ancillary items to the value of $99.00 incl. GST or over.
Our drivers can generally deliver next day. When making a booking, we ask for a two hour timeslot starting at 8am – 10am and the last timeslot being 4pm – 6pm. However this can differ depending on the drivers’ schedules in each city.
Please note this is a preferred timeslot and should the driver not be able to deliver during your requested time, then they will give you a call to discuss an alternative, convenient time for you.
If you require a same day delivery, this may be possible if the driver is in your area and has the stock you require with them. For same day deliveries, it is best to call our Customer Contact Centre on 1300 858 446 prior to 11am on the given day. Failing the same day delivery availability, the driver should be able to deliver off the boxes between 8am and 10am the next day.

Absolutely would recommend!
Placed an order late Friday night for packing boxes and they where delivered to the door promptly the next morning. Great quality and great service!
10/10 would definitely use this company again!

I had to move out at the last minute, I had my order deliver in 2 days, my appointment was between 8 to 10, they arrived nice and early at 8.20am, the business owner was lovely, brought everything in for me, showed me how to open and seal the boxes in the best way, what to put in what sized boxes and the poor guy had to drive all the way from the other side of the city, and got stuck in peak hour, th boxes are sturdy, the packing paper is plentiful, the tape holder and tape is great quality, these are great quality, and very professional service is provided at affordable prices.

Highly recommend this company. You couldn't ask for better service, which goes above and beyond. Recycling boxes solves the problem of what to do with them after the move - they just get taken away for the next person and on top of that, you get a refund! The boxes themselves are top quality, by far the best I've encountered. Will definitely use again.

Hire A Box are fantastic! I chose it for the option of being able to buy used boxes but will recommend it to others for their brilliant customer service. From moving all the boxes inside, to demonstrations of how to best pack and use the tape dispensers to conserve tape. We had a big brainstorm about how to pack my fragile items and the advice given was great. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Thanks, Hire A Box!!

What a difference in this day and age to find a company that does what it promises! Delivered on time by Rod, with a laugh and a chat. Great advice given regarding how to assemble, tape and pack the boxes boxes correctly.
Cannot praise the service highly enough. Thanks Rod! The dog says to say hello:) Cheers, Mark

Thank you very much for the boxes. Rod came at the promised time, the boxes were in great condition and he stayed to provide advice about how to put them together and pack for moving. I would hireabox again without hesitation.

Delivered To: Sawyers Valley Western Austrralia

What an amazing business.
Boxes order at very late notice and they were delivered, with very little time frame, by a really friendly and efficient worker. Then due to an injury I need to get assistance with the pack and used Hire a Packer, the ladies arrived on the dot, rolled up their sleeves and excelled in getting what I needed done. Brilliant and I highly recommend both services to anyone.

I used hire a box twice before and was happy with the service so it was a no brainer to use them 6 years later. So far this move I’ve done two orders and deliveries. The delivery lady has been prompt and professional both times. She is friendly and personable, a credit to your business. Even if I don’t return all the boxes it is still cheaper than other companies offer their boxes for. All my boxes were new on delivery. Happy to provide a 5* as these guys are the best around. I plan on using Hire a mover for my move this week and am awaiting on a quote for Hire a Packer as my partner just broke her ankle and can’t do it. I’m in Adelaide moving one suburb to another.

I used Hire a Box for a move in Melbourne, hiring ~37 boxes. It was all very easy to order online. Rod who delivered the boxes was fantastic at explaining how it all worked and giving tips on how to treat a hired box so that the deposit would be fully refunded. It's all very basic and common sense. The boxes were a mix of new and used and all in fantastic condition. Rod also collected the boxes. Both for delivery and collection he was on time and attentive. The deposit was refunded very speedily. Fantastic service and would definitely use again.

These guys provide an excellent service. You order online at your convenience and they arrive very promptly at the time you pick. You then have the option (if you hire them) to get them picked up once you no longer need them - saves you trying to store them for "future use" or trying to get rid of them yourself!!

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 🙂
