Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) July 8, 2004
If you’re planning a move in the Bay Area, it just got easier and a lot more earth-friendly, thanks to an innovative, new company: Bay Area Boxes. You can now get high quality, USED boxes for your move, delivered to your door at a fraction of the cost of new ones.
In this slow economy, two people hit by layoffs are making lemonade out of lemons. Both founders, Mike Regan and Scott Morris had been laid off in the recent Silicon Valley-wide downsizing. Together, they were looking to develop a business idea that combined social and environmental responsibility, as well as financial viability.
When Mike and his wife were moving to a new home, the lightning bolt hit them: Why, with all the hassles of moving, does finding moving boxes have to be so difficult? Buying new boxes is ridiculous (They are expensive and a terrible waste of natural resources). Asking friends for boxes is cumbersome at best. And then there’s “dumpster diving…”
The two knew there were too many boxes prematurely going to the recycler, or worse yet, the dump. Keeping those boxes in circulation until their useful life was over, is just one small way they feel they can make a difference. “We wanted to set an example for our kids; in this time of conspicuous consumption, it can be cool to reuse,” states Mike Regan.
Scott and Mike saw the opportunity to offer a much-needed service to people moving in the Bay Area. Good, used boxes for a low price, ordered online for convenience, and then delivered directly to their customers at no extra charge.
One of many satisfied customers reports, “Bay Area Boxes was great! They made one of the most annoying, time consuming, and frustrating parts of moving just go away. Great people and great service!”
Mike and Scott knew there was a market for used boxes for individuals moving homes and apartments. What they didn’t expect was that so many businesses would choose to take advantage of their services for the same reasons. Today, Bay Area Boxes contracts with many businesses, realtors, recyclers and movers in the Bay Area, offering a unique and much needed service to them.
Bay Area Boxes is the most convenient, affordable, earth-friendly moving box solution in the Bay Area! (http://www.bayareaboxes.com)
