Packing is perhaps the most stressful part of moving. There’s always a number of things to consider before you relocate, and packing all your belongings from a 3-bedroom house is no mean feat. How many things do you plan on packing? How many things do you get rid of? It’s important to categorize all valuable items and clutter before packing.
Once that’s finalized, the bigger question arises. How many boxes would you need for the move? But keep in mind that many factors will determine the number of boxes you need. Our team at We Move have made a list of things you should keep in mind before you start the packing:
1. The Size of Your House
One way to figure out how many boxes you’ll need will depend on your house’s size. If you live in a big house, you’ll need a lot of boxes. People who move from a three-bedroom home will need more boxes than those who move from an apartment. However, the way you decide to set up the space will also impact the number.
2. Bedrooms and Residents
The number of boxes required will vary depending on the number of rooms and residents. A single room can fill up to 40-50 boxes. The number of packages will also depend on the number of people moving, as each person has their wardrobe and personal items. When estimating the number of boxes per room, it is best to include areas like the garage, attic, and basement.
3. Time spent in your home
The length of your stay in your home determines the number of boxes required as well. The longer you’ve lived in the house, the more stuff you’ve accumulated. This can include travel souvenirs, gifts from relatives, clothing sets, and other items acquired over time. You will need to buy more boxes if you wish to keep everything you’ve collected.
4. Your Habits
Your lifestyle will dictate how you use your home’s space. If you are a minimalist, you can get away with way less than 40 to 50 boxes per room. If you are a hoarder or have sentimental attachments to your belongings, add more boxes for your move.
Every family will have different priorities and several things in their homes. When moving a 3-bedroom house, sort and discard or donate items you don’t need before packing.
