My moving company is packing for me. Can I still use Blue Bins?

Having your movers pack using Blue Bins will save you money! Since movers charge by the hour you’ll pay less because your movers will not have to spend time building cardboard boxes. They also won’t charge you for the cardboard boxes since you will be using Blue Bins instead.

Will Blue Bins deliver the next day?

Yes, as long as there are available time slots the following day, we can accommodate your order.

What If I Need to Reschedule my Delivery or Pickup?

If possible, any rescheduling should be done 24 hours or more prior to your scheduled delivery or pickup. However, we realize moving can be unpredictable. If you have need to reschedule, just send an email to info@bluebinrental.com or call 612.351.BINS.

Why plastic Blue Bins?

Blue Bins can be reused over 60 times vs. cardboard which can be used once or twice. Cardboard makes up 41% of all municipal waste in the United States. Unfortunately, only 25% of that gets recycled annually – meaning 75% ends up in landfills; which are becoming increasingly full. When cardboard decomposes, it releases methane, which is a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming.
