Got too many boxes? Sell your boxes to National Storage.

We don’t just sell boxes – we also buy them back.

That’s right. We buy back used boxes originally purchased from our Box Shop, and we even refund any boxes you didn’t end up needing. We then resell them as second-hand boxes, so they get to help more people move or store their stuff safely.

If you’re finished with your moving boxes and aren’t quite sure what to do with them, our buyback program is a great way to get them out of your house and recycle them responsibly. Plus, you get some extra cash back in your pocket. It’s a win-win!

Box Buyback Program FAQs
