How Many Moving Boxes Do You Need?

by | Jul 29, 2020 | Features

Moving can be a stressful process, and packing your belongings comes with all sorts of uncertainty. Many times, people who are moving are unsure of how many boxes they will need for all their stuff. For most home moves, the average number of boxes needed is sixty, but it can vary depending on several factors like number of rooms, square footage, and overall lifestyle. It’s important to purchase boxes that are in good condition to protect your belongings during the move, and you should also buy boxes of different shapes to fit any awkwardly-sized items.

Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t use boxes that have been damaged before as that can cause many issues on moving day. Opt for new boxes to protect fragile items.
  • You will need all different types of boxes to fit the different items you have. This includes very small and very large boxes.
  • A simple way to think about the amount of boxes you need, is the more rooms you have, the more amount of boxes needed.
