Box mad businessman sets up new environmentally-friendly hire service BoxMyStuff to help house movers to ditch cardboard
ENTREPRENEUR James Kendall is hoping his new business idea will not only make moving house easier – but that it will also help save the planet.
The 42-year-old came up with his latest brainwave while the country was on lockdown and work slowed with his same-day business courier service.
He said: ‘When we went into lockdown, the business went very quiet so I was thinking about what to do and how to diversify. I saw another company doing a similar thing and thought that it sounded like a great idea – and that it would work in Fareham.’
Inspired by his lockdown research, he has now launched a sustainable moving box hire service called BoxMyStuff.
The business supplies eco-friendly moving boxes, which are made from recycled plastic and are reusable hundreds of times over, making moving easier and faster than using traditional cardboard moving boxes.
BoxMyStuff delivers the ready-to-use boxes – which are stackable, nestable and won’t get squashed – complete with labels, to customer’s doors.
The boxes are then collected from the customer’s new home.
The service operates within a 20-mile radius of Fareham, covering areas around Portsmouth, Southampton, Winchester and Petersfield with plans to expand.
James, of Paxton Road, Fareham, said: ‘I needed to diversify to continue to grow the business and this seemed a perfect solution.
He said: ‘I am trying to give people a different option. Every one I speak to says it is a good idea. It is a different solution to what people are used to – but it makes moving easier and it is more environmentally friendly.’
