How to Know How Many Boxes We Need to Move

If you are planning to move, you would understand that the most challenging part about moving is packing. Packing can throw several questions at you like, how do you wrap the fragile stuff in your home, or how do you wrap the clothes, etc. Apart from these, you may also wonder about the kind of packing boxes you would need to pack all your stuff. Most of the time you'll be worried about knowing the number of packing boxes required by you for packing the stuff. This is the trickiest question, and its answers differ from one family to another.

You should know how to estimate the number of cardboard removal boxes that you'll need when you are moving.

When you are calculating the number of boxes to be used while packing your stuff, you need to take so many variables into account. Each home has different contents than another and here's where the calculation differs.

How to calculate the number of boxes needed for moving?


The most basic method to do this is by counting the number of items that need to be moved. You then have to measure these items and then measure each box and find out how many pieces can fit into the box. This is the most accurate way of doing things, but it is also quite time-consuming. So, it can be quite impractical for you if you have a large house and you are planning a big move.

Another thing you could do is that you can pick up the most popular sized boxes from the market and try to fit in your stuff into that. Initially, you can take 10 or 20 of them and then top them up with more if needed. 

When you are packing the stuff on your own, you will need different sized boxes for different purposes.

The number of boxes that you'll need to move also depends on the size of your house. If you have a one bedroom home, ten small moving boxes, five medium boxes, and three large boxes will be sufficient for you — the number of boxes needed to move increases as the size of the house increases.

For a 2-3 bedroom house, you will need around ten small moving boxes, ten medium boxes, and five large boxes. This number of boxes will be sufficient to move the goods for a family of 3-4 members.

For a 3-4-bedroom home, you will need around 15 small moving boxes, ten medium boxes, and ten large boxes. This number of boxes will be sufficient to move the goods for a family of 4 members. 

This is just an average number of boxes you will need to move. If you think that your family members have hoarded a lot of stuff, then you may as well increase the number of boxes.

Generally, the rule of thumb says that the longer you have stayed in a home, the larger amount of things you will be having and thus you will need number of boxes.
