Plastic moving bin delivery business, CityBoxes.ca, fights to offer value; differentiate its service from the competition
The way Andrew Applebaum sees it, there are three certainties in life: death, taxes and moving.
He can’t help you with the first two, but says the plastic moving bin business he launched in May, CityBoxes.ca, can make moving a hassle-free, low-cost and eco-friendly undertaking.
Unlike cardboard boxes, plastic bins don’t require assembly and won’t fall apart. They’re cheaper than cardboard — $3 each as opposed to $4-$5 for boxes, plus the hassle of assembly, taping and disposal — and the company offers free delivery and pickup, meaning there’s nothing to lug to the curb of after a move.
