Top Places to Get Corrugated Sheets for Moving
The worst place to try to get CHEAP moving corrugated sheets is from a moving company, like U-Haul. Moving companies graduate the prices much higher than market price. Here are the top 5 places to get cheap corrugated sheets.

Be a good neighbor
The first place I suggest to look for corrugated sheets are from your neighbors, especially new neighbors. If you have new neighbors, they probably needed boxes to move into the complex, and have most likely unpacked everything and no longer need the corrugated sheets. Be a good neighbor and take the sheets off their hands.
I usually don’t condone digging through other people’s trash; however, there are many stores that have a lot of corrugated sheets that end up in the trash. A great example of this would be a shoe store, or a computer store where they just need the corrugated sheets for shipping and packing, but afterwards, need to get rid of them.
On craigslist, depending on which city you is in, I have seen FREE corrugated sheets under the ‘for sale’ column and the ‘free’ link, every once in a while. This can be helpful since these people obviously want to get rid of their extras and all you need to do is give them a call.
If the first three methods of getting corrugated sheets didn’t work for you, try going to your local retail stores. The sheets are very reasonably priced and they have many sizes to fulfill your needs. They are also a great place to get tape, markers and any other moving supplies.
There is of course, the best online retail-packaging store where you can get corrugated sheets. One is called PackagingSupplies.com, which sells quality-corrugated sheets at the best price. You purchase their supplies and then can use them for all you’re packaging and moving needs. Packaging Supplies also works to sell environmentally friendly corrugated sheets (http://www.packagingsupplies.com/
