Most moving companies do them even if you aren't moving with their help. Price depends on size you are asking for. Perhaps try and contact local international movers if your French is hesitant? If it's good, just smile extra sweetly when you ask if you can buy some!

As TerryT says, supermarket boxes are free. Leader Price have lots - just go in and buy some wine or something so you don't feel guilty taking boxes, or ask directly as I did. They usually say 'je vous en prie!'.

We did a move recently, it was just locally and it wasn't too large so I just went to a couple of supermarkets and asked for boxes one morning and got enough.
