When you’re in the midst of a DIY move, it’s easy to overlook some of the seemingly little yet important things: moving boxes, packing tape, furniture-hauling straps, disc locks and so forth.

SpareFoot has teamed up with a company called Uboxes to help DIY movers purchase those and other moving supplies with just a few clicks of a mouse or a few taps on a smartphone screen.

Through a website created just for SpareFoot customers,, you now can buy an array of moving boxes and moving supplies. With distribution centers in Florida and Kansas, Uboxes can ship purchases in three days or less anywhere in the continental U.S. Shipping is free.

“Our new partnership with Uboxes, coupled with SpareFoot’s ability to help people easily find self-storage around the country, makes things much simpler for DIY movers,” said Chuck Gordon, co-founder and CEO of SpareFoot. “The partnership between Uboxes and SpareFoot will definitely help some of the millions of customers each year who need both moving supplies and self-storage.”

David Holt, owner of Uboxes, said his company lets consumers buy factory-direct moving boxes and supplies at competitive prices.

“The SpareFoot and Uboxes partnership offers a convenient one-stop solution to consumers’ storage and packaging needs,” Holt said. “SpareFoot clients will appreciate Uboxes’ prices, along with our free shipping to their home or business, to help prepare for moving their goods to a storage facility.”
