How many boxes will I need when moving house?

So you’re moving house. Amid the long list of things to do before you move, packing of your boxes is of course an item high on the moving agenda.Cartons and Packing materials

If you are thinking about doing the packing yourself, remember that you can always opt to engage the services of professional packer from a reputable removal company to pack only your fragile items such as glassware, crockery, electrical items, mirrors, ornaments etc. and you may be surprised at how cost effective this is. You are then free to pack the non-breakable items such as clothes, toys, books, etc., keeping your costs down, and protection high.

So when packing yourself, it is often difficult to estimate how many removal boxes you will need for the task. So our experienced team of removalists have assisted in preparing this easy-to-follow estimation guide for you:

Small move – 1 or 2 bedroom home approx. 15 – 25 cubic metres

Medium / Large move – 2 or 3 bedroom home 25 -35 cubic metres

Giant move – when you have 5 or more bedrooms 35 – 50 cubic metres

Remember, if you are moving with Wridgways our friendly team we can provide professional packing services so you can relax knowing your packing is in our capable hands, or will provide you with complimentary recycled packing cartons to assist you.
