How many moving boxes do I need?
Determining the number of boxes you need for storage is a little bit science and little bit art. One of the simplest ways to help estimate the number of boxes you need is to go room-by-room and envision what needs to go in a box. Remember there are different sized boxes and boxes for different purposes as well. Some experts say to estimate 15 boxes per room Some tips to help you get started are:
- Estimate one box for every shelf or drawer in the room. Heavier items should go in a smaller boxes.
- You’ll need specialty boxes for televisions, artwork, and mirrors.
- Wardrobe boxes typically hold 2 feet of hanging items each, so measure the length of your closets.
- Don’t forget to account for seasonal clothes.
- Estimate one dish pack box and partition kit per shelf of dishware.
- Don’t forget about the items in plain sight such as décor and books on coffee tables, end tables, and counter tops.
- It’s always better to have more boxes to pack than less to prevent them being too heavy and items breaking mid-move.
