It was there that they noticed the heavy-duty polyethylene plastic boxes used in commercial moving and wondered why the same boxes weren’t used residentially. And so Bronko Box was born.
Instead of foraging for flimsy cardboard boxes when moving, ultra-strong Bronko boxes, which arrive with handles and moving wheels, can be rented for one to three weeks at a time, then returned to the company for reuse. “The standard cardboard box gets two and a half uses,” says Bo. “The Bronko box, at the low estimate, gets 400 uses. So we’re talking about saving a lot of trees and keeping a lot out of the landfill.” And starting at $30 for a week rental, the price is right, too. “We’re at least 50 percent cheaper than buying new boxes and having to put them together,” says Brooke. “We want to revolutionize the way not only Austinites, but Texans, are packing and moving.”
