Why Consider Renting Plastic Moving Boxes: 6 Reasons

Apr 16, 2020 | 0 comments

Renting plastic moving boxes is quick and convenient. It also means you don’t have to waste lots of cardboard boxes and bubble wrap.

Here are six reasons why you should rent reusable plastic moving boxes next time you move home or office.

Strong and durable

Our plastic moving boxes are sturdy and strong, making them perfect for heavy items such as books or fragile items like vases and kitchenware.

They’re stackable and easily packed onto a moving van or truck.

Weather- and pest-proof

Each Ecobox has a tightly sealing lid that prevents moisture and pests from getting in.

This is useful if you’re moving during the rainy season or if your moving truck or trailer is open to the elements. It also makes Ecoboxes ideal for moving moisture-sensitive items like documents and electronics.


Each Ecobox is 600 (L) x 400 (W) x 400 (D) mm and has a 70-litre capacity.

This makes them spacious enough to store a large amount of your belongings. However, they’re not so big that they’re unwieldy or difficult to carry.


Our Ecoboxes are used hundreds of times before they need to be retired. They’re then fully recycled.

Before and after each use, an Ecobox is thoroughly cleaned and sanitised.

Because Ecoboxes are sturdy and have firm sides, you won’t need all the padding you’d use to protect items in cardboard boxes.

Renting plastic moving boxes eliminates the need to buy and then dispose of cardboard boxes, tape and other packing materials.


You can order Ecobox kits online and we’ll deliver them to your door.

Once you’ve moved and unpacked, we’ll collect them from your new location. This saves you the hassle of trying to dispose of cardboard boxes.


You can choose a home or office moving kit that comes with the ideal quantity of Ecoboxes for your needs, removing the guesswork.
