Moving house can be a stressful and tedious process, especially when it comes to packaging up all of your belongings. Not only can it be overwhelming to physically pack and sort your items, firstly you have the challenge of sourcing quality and affordable boxes. This begs the question: how many boxes do you actually need when moving house? Too many leaves you with unused boxes to move around, too little means you have loose items to somehow move or boxes packed too heavily!
While there are services out there to help you pack and move, doing it yourself can save you time and money, as well as provide more flexibility around when and how you move. To help you estimate how many boxes you need to make your next move, we have done some calculations and have prepared the below figures.
For a smaller move, of around 1 – 2 bedrooms, we recommend:
This estimate applies to homes of around 15 – 25 cubic metres.
If you are moving a medium sized home, say 2 – 3 bedrooms, we recommend:
This estimate applies to homes of around 25 – 35 cubic metres
For large moves of 5 or more bedrooms, we recommend:
This estimate applies to homes of around 35 – 50 cubic metres
Every move will be different, and you know better than anyone how much you need to pack! These figures will hopefully help you with a starting point to add to, or take away from, when purchasing boxes for your move.
How To Find Quality and Affordable Moving Boxes
Now that you have a basic idea of how many boxes you’re going to need, next comes the task of sourcing them. There are a number of ways to source boxes for moving, but not all are equal. The quality of your boxes has a direct affect on the safety and success of your move. Buying new may seem expensive, but it can save you from having to replace broken items or pay for costly bug removal. At Jetbox, we offer cardboard moving boxes that are flat packed and ready to go. When purchasing your moving boxes new, you remove the risk of a box breaking open, being riddled with bugs and dust and generally being unreliable for a long move.
