    Where to get cardboard boxes for moving within HK

    Hi All,

    I have been to Ikea and they only have small size boxes. What I am after are the large cardboard boxes the moving companies use. I have thought about the recycle centres but those boxes can be already dirty so unsuitable for our household goods.

    Thanks for the help

    Thanks I thought that they would not supply these if they were not doing the move.

    We have used East Asia Movers Hong Kong, 4 times so far, which in my opinion, charge very fair prices. http://www.eamovers.com.hk/

    We were recently charged $6000 ( a large 4 bedroom home worth ) including about 50 large cardboard boxes, a big/full roll of 1 metre wide bubble wrap, 20 rolls of tape, wine bottle inserts and a number of clothing bags, delivered 2 weeks prior to moving day. They moved our entire house in a day and were finished by 6pm..

    Ours was a fairly major move, so reckon it will be pretty hard to beat, it even included moving a fair amount of outdoor garden furniture, a large BBQ, sun umbrella's, and 3 Christmas trees ( douglas furs )

    Not sure if they will supply boxes to non moving clients, but it cant hurt to give them a call on 2958 1233

    Wow brilliant thanks for all that info you have just saved a chunk of Internet aimlessness for me. My move will be fairly easy (A couple of pieces of furniture max)

    as nassau stated, ask a park'n'shop or wellcome staff for freebie boxes some can be large, but most are smallest ( go to a few branches for a selection), if these boxes not big enough, ikea has some for reasonable size

    if the boxes are too small, combine multiple boxes ( disassemble and double up with the second box of the same type) for bigger boxes

    There is a box shop on either Mee Lun St. between Hollywood Rd and Gough St. just west of Central (it *could* possibly be on Shin Hing St. which is one street over). Go there during business hours and I'm sure you can buy a handful of boxes.

    Why not also try just posting a "wanted" ad on this website's classifieds?

    There are three source i can think of

    Supermarket like park n shop (free box but beat up)
    office supply shop (usually small box only)
    moving or mini storage company like HongKong Storage (more choice, but more expensive)
