Reuse Your Moving and Packing Supplies After Your Move

Once you’ve completed your move to Nashville and all your belongings are stored away, we’re sure you’re feeling much less overwhelmed and your stressors are decreasing. However, you’re looking around and notice you’ve got a ton of leftover moving supplies, such as ones that you can use again, donate to someone, or find another purpose to keep them around. The Tennessee movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage are here to share some different ways you can recycle and reuse moving supplies, so you don’t necessarily have to just throw them away.


For Storage
Even if your home has plenty of storage space, you can reuse your durable moving boxes for a new way of organizing your decorations from various holidays, important documents, arts and crafts, any extra kitchen supplies, clothes that don’t need to be in your closet, and more.
Definitely remember to label the boxes in a detailed matter – this way, you won’t have to play the guessing game or open up each box to see what’s inside.

For Keeps
The Tennessee movers at All My Sons suggest keeping all custom-made packaging in a safe space, just in case. Original packaging provides better protection than regular moving boxes. You never know when you’re going to need the original packing of certain items, such as a television.

For Gift Wrapping
If you move to Nashville around the holidays, or at a time when a loved one has a birthday, moving boxes work very well as a way to encase a gift – especially if the item doesn’t wrap well by itself, such as something abnormally shaped.

For Sharing
Recycle and allow others to reuse the moving supplies that did you well. If they’re durable enough, like the ones you’d get from our Tennessee movers, you can give them to a friend moving sometime soon. You can also post on your social media letting others know you have moving supplies that you don’t want to throw away. Whether you have a large following or not, someone is sure to be able to find a way to reuse moving supplies, even for activities that don’t involve an entire relocation!

For Play
If you have kids or pets, they can make the best out of old moving boxes before you toss them. Popping bubble wrap is also one of the simpler things in life that make people laugh and smile. Let the stress of moving slip away as you take a few moments to make a game out of it.


After your move to Nashville, you may feel overwhelmed by all the boxes and other moving supplies you may have laying around the house. However, when you reuse moving supplies you’re saving energy and money in the long run, in more than just moving.
