Are your boxes sanitized after each use?
Yes. When we pickup the reusable moving boxes from your home and office; we then return to our warehouse and use an environmentally safe disinfecting cleaner on the exterior and interior of each box. Afterwards, we let each moving box sit in the sun for a full day to dry and then we rotate those boxes back into our supply every 4 days.
Do you quarantine moving boxes?
We have a detailed sensitization process that includes a full day in the sun to dry and then we rotate boxes into cleaned inventory on a every-4-day process.

PLASTIC VS CARDBOARD
Why plastic over cardboard?
The value of reusing allows us to mitigate our impact on the environment. Did you know that there are glue and tape from cardboard that are not recyclable? Pack and Geaux reduces waste through our cleaning and reusing practices, allowing a single box to be used over 400 times!
Are plastic moving boxes safe for storing and moving valuables?
Our plastic boxes provide you with superior protection for your valuables during the moving process. No longer will you need to worry about crushed boxed, the bottoms falling out, or tape giving way. Pack and Geaux boxes are designed for easy stacking, all while keeping your possessions safe and secure.
What is the size of a moving box?
27”L x 17”W x 12”H. This is the ideal size! Any smaller and it would be a waste; any larger and you wouldn’t be able to easily move your belongings.
LENGTH OF SERVICE
Can I keep the boxes longer if I need too?
Absolutely! When you checked out, you had the option for paying for additional weeks. On average, you should consider 1 - 2 weeks for packing and 1 - 2 weeks for unpacking.
We understand that moving can be a hectic activity and want you to be comfortable and move at your own pace. Our mission is to help make your moving experience better by providing you with safety for your valuables and the flexibility to move on your own schedule.
For a small additional weekly fee, you may keep the moving boxes until you are fully done unpacking. Simply call or text us to come pick the boxes up when you are ready.
