How many boxes do I need when I’m moving house?

Home / Northern Beaches / How many boxes do I need when I’m moving house?

Moving into a new home can be one of the most stressful times in your life. There are so many things to organise, and moving successfully can take a whole lot of organisation, planning, and foresight. If you’re looking to make your move less stressful, Northern Beaches storage from EJ Shaw Storage can help you out.

How to determine the number of boxes needed

Obviously, the number of boxes you’ll need will differ greatly depending on the size of your home and the amount of things you own. It will also depend on a number of other factors, like the size of your family, and how many items you plan on throwing away instead of bringing with you. Knowing exactly how many boxes you’re going to need is practically impossible, but you should still be able to make an educated estimate.

Generally, a couple living in a modest, two-bedroom home will need about 30 boxes designed for heavy items and 20 boxes for other items. A large family living in a four-bedroom home will need about 60 heavy-duty boxes and 40 standard boxes. These numbers are guidelines only, and you might need more or less than these suggestions depending on your situation.

What other supplies are essential?

Boxes aren’t the only thing you need when you’re packing up your home for a big move. You’ll also need plenty of other packing supplies, including:

  • Bubble wrap
  • Packing tape
  • Rope
  • Markers
  • Labels
  • Packing paper

Make sure you’re prepared before you start packing with all the supplies you’re going to need.

Benefits of using Northern Beaches storage during your move

There are plenty of benefits to using Northern Beaches storage during your move. With a storage unit, you can start your packing process months in advance. You can pack up the items you don’t need very often, like seasonal decor or winter coats, and move them into your storage unit. Any unessential furniture can also be moved into Manly storage to create more space for packing items. Items that are likely to be damaged during the move can be kept in storage. This will help you to move them separately and therefore keep them more protected.

Northern Beaches storage from EJ Shaw Storage can help take the guesswork out of where to keep your important items safe until they’re needed once again. Contact the team today to learn more about your storage options.
