Welcome to New Mexico! I definitely recommend keeping the boxes - trust me. But I probably wouldn't pack them in them for the move, I have seen more damaged ships in improperly packed boxes than anything else.
I moved some 5,000 ships across country coast to coast (eventually) in mobile carts and double-side tape (courtesy of George Elder) in a moving van with little damage (one cart tipped over, loosening up a few models), of the several thousand in boxes more had tumbles from improper packing material. So keep the boxes, if you ever have to ship, a lot easier to handle than Pizza Boxes!
I don't recommend long term storage in boxes, though, as many of the packing foams react with the paint or oil of the model, and turns into crumbs, damaging the paint badly.
