Why don’t I just find used boxes?

Place 2 or 3 books in the bottom to keep the flaps in place
Place wardrobe bar in slots at the top. The lower openings are handles for moving.
Add your clothes on hangers to the wardrobe.
Secure top and sides of the wardrobe before moving.

How are we helping the environment by using Frogbox?
Each Frogbox plastic moving box will be re-used hundreds of times before being fully recycled. They are made of easy to recycle High Density Polyethylene, that is strong, sturdy and all around the best choice for moving boxes.
Cardboard moving boxes are used on average less than two times before being recycled or disposed of. The EPA states that re-use is much better than recycling because recycling takes a lot of energy. Therefore using Frogboxes greatly reduces your environmental footprint. Frogbox is a low environmental impact moving system –all of the products we provide are either re-used or recycled.
How can you help Frogbox?
Tell your friends and family about us! Every time someone uses Frogbox we reduce the number of trees being cut down to make cardboard moving boxes. Besides that, it’s just a more convenient and affordable way to move.
Why use Frogbox?
Because it is more CONVENIENT, more AFFORDABLE and more SUSTAINABLE than the alternative!
What about bedbugs?
We clean each box between customers with an eco friendly cleaner. Bedbugs can be an issue with cardboard boxes as they are soft and retain moisture, creating an environment that is more appealing for bedbugs. This is one of the reasons we don’t recommend finding used boxes online or from the back of a liquor store.
Our boxes are made from #2 Plastic (High Density Polyethylene aka HDPE). This is a very dense and strong plastic that is great for moving but does not create an environment that will attract bedbugs.
Do you recycle Frogboxes?
Yes. Frogboxes are made from HDPE, #2 plastic. We are able to send retired Frogboxes to local recycling plants to be made into any number of new HDPE items.
Do you offer long term box rental?
Yes! For orders up to six weeks you can use our standard pricing and add the additional week charge to the three week rate. For longer orders please call us for special long term pricing. We help lots of customers who need to put their items in to long term storage or who are renovating their home and want to keep their goods safe

What if I move to a different city?
