Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 10, 2009
EcoBox the leading supplier of new and used moving boxes in central Texas has expanded to a larger warehouse at 10615 Metric Blvd, Austin, TX 78758. EcoBox purchased the Metric Blvd building and officially moved from their old location at Rutland Dr. into the new location on Metric Blvd on July 1st 2009. The new location serves as corporate offices as well as the main distribution center. Despite the economic downturn, EcoBox is expanding and finding that customers are now more than ever concerned about prices as well as the environment.
"By buying and reselling used moving boxes our customers can save up to 50% less than what other competitors charge while also keeping boxes out of the landfill," explains Sam Lee Managing Partner. With the expanded warehouse facility, and the north and south Austin retail stores, Ecobox is prepared to meet the future demands of Austin and the Central Texas area.
EcoBox hasn't been immune to the slowing economy. "We have seen our wholesale business slow by about 10%, however, our retail business has been steady and growing" comments Lee. EcoBox will focus on offering a larger array of specialty shipping and moving supply products that can only be found at EcoBox. "By doubling our warehouse space, it allows us to stock more used products and purchase them in larger quantities. In the past 5 years we has sold over 1 million used boxes that would have otherwise ended up in the landfill," explains Lee. EcoBox is working to duplicate their efforts thru franchising in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas, TX.
EcoBox was founded in 1994 with a stack of used moving boxes, a Buick Riviera, a storage shed and a great idea. For the past 12 years, EcoBox has been selling used moving boxes and supplies while saving their customers money. EcoBox now stocks more than 150 different sizes of boxes, tape, bubble wrap, packing peanuts and hundreds of other items for moving and shipping. Each independently owned EcoBox store is part of a team whose goal it is to provide excellent service to the customer while helping to save our environment through recycling.
