In short, there is no way my wife and I could have made our move without our BungoBoxes. Equal parts product and service, the BungoBox experience made our move faster, easier and more affordable.
In late July, I moved my wife, my two dogs and everything we owned halfway across Austin. The two of us have each moved eight times in the last nine years, each time dreading the move more and more. Thanks to BungoBox, this one was the smoothest yet.
Three key elements caused us to kick cardboard to the curb and never look back: Quality of product, convenience of service and overall value.
Quality of product—As a newly married couple, we found out pretty fast that transporting our wedding china in a cardboard box just wasn't going to cut it. The more we thought about it, though, we weren't comfortable putting anything in a cardboard box. Whether it was her crystal and picture frames or my PlayStation 3 and sports memorabilia, why were we storing our items in cardboard boxes that could tear easily and offer no protection from the sun or rain? And packing tape? Give me a break. The BungoBoxes were lightweight yet incredibly strong, and their interlocking lids that could be pad-locked or zip-tied closed made us feel much safer about packing and shipping our valuables. We also loved the easily-removable stickers provided for labeling each box; no more illegible Sharpie-scribbles on the side of a cardboard box. Best of all, when the first box was unpacked, we filled it with ice and beer to "aid" in our unpacking process.
Convenience of service—When you're trying to pack up your old house and move to a new one, the last thing you want to think about is where you're going to get cardboard boxes, or worse, what in the world you're going to do with them when you're done. The guys at BungoBox not only provided us with a superior product, but they delivered AND picked up the boxes for us. How did this help? On the front end, we weren't scrambling to borrow or purchase cardboard boxes; instead, BungoBoxes were placed neatly in our living room two days before our move. On the back end, we scheduled a pick-up time and the boxes were out of our hair before we knew it. Our cardboard boxes from the year before had sat in the garage and grown tattered and weak from the elements. Perhaps even more important than that, the BungoBox team helped us decide how may boxes we need. They didn't try to oversell us of force to "upgrade" to the next combo package; they made us comfortable about their products and helped us get the most out of the service.
Overall value—Until I used BungoBoxes, I had no idea how much money I was wasting on moving supplies each year. Before booking with BungoBox, a major moving company tried to sell my wife a cardboard and packing-tape "kit" for more than $300. All she had to do was drive 25 minutes out of her way and hopefully the company "might still have some in stock." BungoBox didn't just offer a better product than cardboard—they did it for nearly one-third of the price. With the combined quality of both product and service, their affordable prices were worth every penny.
Don and the team at BungoBox made this such a surprisingly good experience for my wife and I that we've already recommended them to many of our friends and colleagues. I'm not sure I'll ever truly look forward to moving, but if I have to, I'm glad to know BungoBox will give me one less thing to worry about.

My apologies, was not sure where to "categorized this". First to enter this business,since this is a "innovative" concept, not really a "one click" box you can place this. (they also offer commercial services,)-nowhere to categorize it.
WITHOUT EXCEPTION best SERVICE experience I've *EVER* had while moving. .
"Flip Top Storage Crates" designed to use during a move process. Stacable/Nestable, ettc
Due to the fact I was moving into a Condo, I knew that getting rid of (30 corrugated boxes of personal items 3 boxes which were Corrugated Wardrobe boxes I USED IN THE PAST) would simply be a "nightmare" scenario. So looked for this solution.
"Products" they offer (You don't have to register to review their site)
"Pre Packaged" discount plans
1 The Service *BOTH* Drop off and Pick up *FREE*
2.The "Service Experience" I had -Drop off/Pick UP--very professional. cordial, even down to the "little details" on drop off the gentleman gave me labels and advised me not to use anything "very sticky" (leaves residue) as they'll have to charge to remove-- Awesome, never thought of that! "Warned" beforehand!!!!
3 As anyone who has bought a new place, things never go as planned,. I didn't close as planned on my first condo. I had to SCRAMBLE to find a "temp home" to live.These Boxes protected my valuables the 2 months it took me to find my "New Top Floor Condo"!! : )
4 The several times, I had to extend my "pick up" time, each time they were very accommodating/understanding.
1. Without question, I will *NEVER* move without using these boxes. I would describe as "medium duty/high quality construction" ex -it's not like you have a bunch of "Warehouse Grade" 20 pound (empty) plastic boxes in your house. (nor are they "cheap plastic" Target grade you fill more than 10 lbs full and they crack apart.
2. For example, I was able to fill a box full of Books, which felt like "full" weighed 100-lbs (unbelievably heavy) and never did I worry the bottom would drop out.
3. Reverse example. I forgot to get anything for my glassware, Didn't have time to run, go get a corrugated solution from "THE CS" or the like. Needed to finish packing, thought "oh well, it's my fault, keep my fingers crossed".
I took each wine glass I had, rolled the wine class into "one roll" of a towel, placed the next wine glass into the "Next roll" and so on. so had 4 glasses in a "flat pack" type packing. I then gently stacked each "flat roil" into the crate, placing a bed pillow in the "empty space" to keep them from rattling around.
100%!!! of the wine glasses (and "daily drinking glasses" )Survived!!!--THREE home moves.. Never would I expect that in a corrugated box.
4.The boxes (empty) "Nest" into each other so again, it's not like you have a house full of boxes to maneuver around.
5. Full of your valuables, the boxes "stack" on each other *almost* into a "Locked fashion"
6.Last but definitely not least, if you are a "Green Conscious" person, this is *THE ULTIMATE* "Green Solution" I'm guessing those boxes are reused dozens of times before "retired" (and probably retired to some "warehouse" that needs a secure solution to store long term items (ie. protect from water, bugs, etc).
I can honestly say there was *NOTHING* I can say negative about the Company, their personnel, their product, or the move experience as it pertained to the quality of the product/service they offer.
*THE ONLY* thing I'd say they need to "improve upon" is the ability to find them on the Web. When I knew I wanted this solution, I kept getting companies located in California (where I'm sure this is very popular due to the "Green Initiative").
I honestly don't remember what keyword combination I used, but was kinda hard to find them (I included their links above).

I wanted to thank you for providing my husband and I with BungoBoxes for our move to North Phoenix. What a great solution! The last time we moved, I bought recycled cardboard boxes but after unpacking, was faced with the issue of what to do with all of them. It took weeks to get them “processed” – broken down, flattened, stacked and then put in the front yard (hoping that the wind wouldn’t blow them around) to be picked up by the City of Phoenix. Recycling them was a royal pain as the City of Phoenix had strict requirements for how to prepare them for pick up. Our 2-car garage was virtually useless until we were able to get rid of them.
The BungoBoxes are a perfect solution. They were no more money than the cardboard boxes, and we didn’t have to tape them together. They actually hold a lot more, are stronger and the various sizes were very useful. The best thing about the BongoBoxes was the dolly they sat on. During packing, you could move them around easily after loading them and could stack them 4 boxes high. This made packing and unpacking a breeze. After the move, you could wheel the boxes where they needed to go for unpacking and once empty, they stacked together tightly and took up no more room in the garage than two boxes would on the floor. And, there is nothing to recycle, as the boxes are reusable and already made of recycled plastic. A green solution that keeps unwanted boxes out of landfills and conserves resources.
We will gladly use BungoBoxes whenever we move (if we ever move again), and appreciated your service and timely delivery and pickups. You always let us know when you were going to be there and your delivery windows were accurate – you were on time for both the drop off and pick up.
Thank you again for offering BungoBoxes in Phoenix. Good luck with your business. I think it is a great concept and service.

The Orlando Magic are moving into a new state of the art facility. In doing so, they have gone to great lengths to contribute to the local economy and decrease their environmental footprint. Therefore, the Magic have chosen to utilize BungoBoxes for their move into the new Amway Arena. Go Magic!
Orlando fans are giddy to see the new arena and to watch their home team make a run at the championship this year.
Rest assured Team BungoBox will be watching and cheering. Thanks Magic, Orlando loves you and so does BungoBox.
Wait....Wait... I think I just heard trees everywhere chanting.....Go Magic....Go Magic...

Kings of Boxes
We love to see when people utilize the full potential of BungoBox and why they Crush Cardboard!
Andrea Price - "Best boxes EVER! They made our move so much easier. I couldn’t believe how much stuff we could fit in them."
Thanks Andrea! We do like to consider ourselves the Kings of the Boxes!
Give it Back - or Don't
While the "Move. Unpack. Now Give 'em Back" concept is part of what makes BungoBoxes so easy to use - don't forget if you really love them (or maybe just want a stylin' new footrest or end table in your new place) you can purchase them and have a piece of BungoBox in your life forever! Think of the possibilities - storing those pesky Christmas lights, books, valuables and more!
Donna Battle - "Follow @BungoBox, learn about their awesome product and enter for a chance to win an iPad! Pack. Move. Give it Back. LOVE THAT!!"
Don’t forget – you do have the option to buy BungoBoxes as well if you’d like!
The "Removal Expert"
It's always great to hear from an expert...especially when they are endorsing BungoBox! No complaints here, although maybe a bit of curiosity about what a "Removal Expert" does on the job....
Lucien Love - "I’m trained in the art of removals and I can honestly say your boxes are by far the best!"
Thank you - we like to think so too!
Want a piece of the spotlight too? Well, don't be shy - speak your mind about BungoBox!
Mr. Murray (Tampa, FL) believes that BungoBox is “all in all, a great thing”! His business move was very smooth and easy using BungoBoxes. He was pleased with his savings on renting BungoBoxes as opposed to buying boxes. Mr. Murray has been telling all of his friends and family about moving with BungoBox and wants to help spread the word about this great business!
“Incredible alternative to paper boxes” is how Amy Bassinger of Orlando, FL views BungoBox after using them for her last move. She highly recommends them to her family and friends and would use BungoBoxes again herself tomorrow! She liked that you have the option of carrying them, stacking them and/or wheeling them around. The movers that helped her thought that they were the best thing that they have ever seen!
When moving one of his offices for Merrill Insurance (of Mount Dora, FL), Kent thought his experience with BungoBox was fantastic! He was impressed with how simple and easy it was to use BungoBoxes. He enjoyed how neat and clean the boxes were as well as how easy they were to stack and move around. Kent also thought the BungoBox guys were great too! The reasonable price was also a high point for Kent – he spent around ¼ of what he would have spent on cardboard boxes that he would have just thrown away.
I’ve always dreaded packing and moving, but BungoBox sure made the moving process A LOT less painful! BungoBoxes are extremely durable, stackable, and easy to move around – especially when using their dolly. The staff was very flexible and courteous. I strongly recommend BungoBox to anyone getting ready for their next move! Save yourself time, money, and agony – all while helping to save the environment!

Knowing that our items were going to be secure during the move gave us piece of mind. BungoBoxes stack neatly and with ease due to their nesting structure and the fitted dollies made our move much more manageable. The BungoBox Team was very communicative and sensitive to all of our moving needs! We appreciated the sense of urgency conveyed when we needed additional supplies and were very thankful for the flexibility in our agreement. If you are concerned about making your move a quick transition – having items packed/unpacked without the nuisance of cardboard boxes – and want assurance that your personal items will be secure, then BungoBox is definitely the way to go!

BungoBoxes give you bang for your buck! They are less expensive than buying cardboard boxes, and are eco-friendly. They deliver/pick them up, which made moving quicker, more organized and easier than any other time I’ve moved! BungoBoxes were incredibly easy to use and 100 times better than regular boxes. They are more sturdy, hold more weight, are easier to stack and much easier to carry. They don’t bend, buckle or tear. They provided greater protection to all of my valuables than any cardboard box ever could. Tom and the team at BungoBox provide excellent customer service – they are quick to respond, answer any questions, are on time, professional and overall very helpful! What a Great Deal!!!!
