Determining the number of boxes, you will need to buy or collect before moving is quite tricky. Although you can estimate the number, it can always change once you start packing all your belongings. If you have several rooms, chances are, you have a lot more possessions. You can sometimes begin to accumulate too many items, where you lose count of how many are there and where they’re stored.
You can start the process by determining exactly the type of packing materials you’ll need for the job, but to do this, you need to know how much stuff you have. A great idea to get rid of unwanted items is holding a garage or yard sale.
Besides, you can also use a moving estimate weight calculator, which will give you an idea of what most household items weigh, and the cost to make a move. However, you still need to determine the number of boxes required and their sizes. When you decide, you have to include areas like garages or sheds. At times, these online calculators only take the rooms inside your property into account.
Bear in mind those larger boxes weigh more than standard ones. If you plan to make this move yourself, avoid using oversized boxes, as they’re harder to move when packed.
How Many Boxes Will You Need For A 5-Bedroom House?
For properties with over five bedrooms, you might need a box count that’s similar to this:
However, these numbers can also vary substantially based on how much stuff you have in the house. Although your total might end up at around 80-150 boxes, some families may require over 300 boxes for the move.
Rather than handling the entire packing and moving process, hiring the services of reputed movers might be a great idea. They have the skill and experience to tackle such tasks smoothly, efficiently, and on time. Besides, this allows you to take care of more important things.
