Absolutely it is, and it is a very good idea. My advice will depend on what type of installation you are doing. Have you ordered a package or a nucleus? If a nucleus, how many frames will they provide? A standard nucleus is 5 frames, but some providers only give you 4 frames.
If it is a package or a 4 frame nucleus, you can manage with a nucleus box. Your fastest option would be to buy one locally, and a brief Google search brought up this:
Starting from the bottom of the hive moving up, the minimum you will need is a bottom board, a Langstroth (5 frame) deep box, an inner cover and a roof. Probably around $40 total if unassembled. You just need some nails or screws, and in your situation, I wouldn’t paint it at this point, as you are going to move them in a couple of weeks.
If you have 5 frames in a nucleus, you should probably buy an 8-frame Langstroth hive. Minimum would be a bottom board, an 8-frame deep box, an inner cover and a roof.
