For some reason, I didn't expect the kit to be packed in such a huge box. If you take everything out of the box, it should fit in most mid-sized cars. The tape was CHEAP!!! I had to buy new packing tape as the tape included would split and needed multiple layers on the boxes. NOT enough boxes or padding for the size apartment they indicate. Plan to buy more of everything. GREAT STARTER KIT. GREAT QUALITY BOXES. Marker was great. Quality of packing materials (minus the tape) was high.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rev2016 moving box kit package - 35 boxes
The boxes were good quality and the materials were included. I'm not sure the tape and wraps were enough for 35 boxes. The external shipping box was damaged and ripped open, resulting in a few bent boxes, but that did not impact the functionality of the materials.

The boxes work fine. The kit is a nice way to get a supply as well as a little of the needed bubble wrap and tape. The tape was low quality and the bubble wrap was a good start, but I also went to the store to purchase more bubble wrap and named brand tape. The order came in two boxes. They were sent separately, so I had to go to the store two times for pick up. I was not thrilled about this inconvenience (I ordered the package to AVOID multiple trips). Either be aware or just make an all inclusive trip yourself.

Package arrived damaged, boxes missing and damaged, tape & dispenser mediocre in quality. I was disappointed in it overall, did not meet my expectations. It was cheaper than buying it all separately but wasn't worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChicagoMary A true cost saver!
I ordered this product to move my one bedroom condo, of which I lived there for 15 years. (I had gathered some paper boxes and used those too.) It was so easy to have the boxes on hand and we simply pulled the appropriate box size out of the container and started packing. The best part was when the movers came. Rather than pay their over-priced fees for supplies, the movers used supplies from my medium packing kit, saving almost $400. I would recommend buying more tape thought.
The one complaint I have is, under the product specs, it says you can return any unused portion. I had 10 unused boxes so I took them to the Home Depot on North Avenue in Chicago. The store said I couldn't return the unused boxes because they were part of the kit. They said I had to return the whole kit. I challenged this, referring to the bullet point under "Product Specs". The unhelpful manager told me that I had to call customer service to get the SKUs, which I did. I had CS speak with the store on how to handle the transaction (on my cell phone). In the end, the store said they could only put the return on a HD gift card. I accepted. Then, because it was $10.52, the employee asked if I wanted cash and I said "yes". Such a circus! So, make sure you order the right size kit.

Boxes were great - did in store pick up, checked the boxes and some were damaged and they allowed us to get fresh ones. The tape quality wasn't that great though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MichLA Too many boxes
I purchased this kit as I was moving only half of my 2bdrm condo. (I moved my bedroom, the items in the kitchen cupboards and any loose items in the living room. Believe me, it was a lot of stuff.) When I first did the HD program to calculate how many boxes I would need, it told me I would need a ridiculous amount and I thought I would be safe purchasing this kit to get me started. Along the way, I did gather some extra (free) boxes around the office and family also gathered empty boxes from their work. So I ended up returning about half of these boxes and one roll of bubble wrap. And while they say you can return it, the reality is you will only get store credit since it's part of a larger package. Not a deal breaker since I seem to be going back to HD daily for random widgets. It was helpful to return some of the large boxes and purchase the heavy duty medium boxes instead. My advice is just to go HD and buy the boxes you need rather than over-purchasing with the kit. And I agree with other reviewers, their packing tape is horrible and difficult to work with.

I didn't get the sharpie that was supposed to be included in my order. But it was a convenient order that provided sufficient boxes for my 1 bedroom apartment
