Totes V. Boxes: Why We Love this Sustainable Moving Supply



Moving totes are more durable than your standard corrugated box. Our totes are made of 100% recycled plastic, which means that they are less susceptible to ripping or tearing and are also waterproof.   Additionally, because the totes are plastic, they are less susceptible to crushing or damage if they are stacked.

Assembly & Extra Materials:

The totes require no assembly and are delivered, prior to your move, ready to pack. When using boxes you’ll need to assemble each box individually, and extra supplies like packing tape are needed.


Totes are more efficient for our crews. They are designed to stack 4 high on a dolly and are easy to roll and secure in our trucks. Standard boxes can be various sizes and, for safety reasons, it’s recommended to stack no more than 3 high.


Because the totes are made of a durable plastic, we are able to reuse them over and over again. This also means, at the end of your move, there will be less debris to clean up and haul away. When using standard moving boxes the boxes must be broken down and collected for recycling. In some cases, boxes are stored long term and never make it to recycling, adding to local landfills.   If you’re preparing for an office move, this is just one of the many pro-benefits we offer at ADSI Moving Systems.
