Packing Boxes FAQs

When moving home you might wonder how many packing boxes you will need what boxes are typically used. Get your questions answered.

– How many boxes would I need?

Without any experience calculating the number of packing boxes for moving house will not be easy. If you have never moved before, you will most likely underestimate the number of items that will need packing. When the small items are hidden and stored in cupboards and cabinets, you can easily forget that they will need to be placed into removal boxes. Based on our experience we are giving you a rough idea of the number of the packing boxes for moving house you will need below:

1 bedrooms property – 20-30 boxes

2 bedrooms property – 30-50 boxes

3 bedrooms property – 60-80 boxes

– If I cannot pack everything, can you help me with the packing?

Yes, we can help you and finish the packing. Be aware there might be extra charges if this is an extra service we are doing.

– What size of boxes I will need?

Movivan Removals offer 3 sizes of boxes. We sell large removal boxes with sizes 18x18x18 inches which are suitable for light stuff like clothes, pillows, and linen. The medium size packing boxes have 18x12x12 size. They are suitable for packing books and fragile items from the kitchen. The third size packing box is called the wardrobe box. We use them to pack hanging clothes to avoid folding them. They are suitable for suits, coats, shirts, and skirts.

– What is a wardrobe box?

A wardrobe box is a tall packing box that all removal companies use for hanging clothes when packing boxes for moving house.

– If I need extra packing boxes for moving house, can deliver them again?

Yes, we can deliver as many times as you want. Do not forget for orders less than £100 we have to charge a delivery charge which will depend on the delivery address.

– What are the cheaper alternatives?

Refuse sacks – They are much cheaper compared to moving boxes, but suitable only for clothes, linen and any light and soft material. We do not advise using those types of bags as they are hard to be transported and easy to be ripped off. Not suitable for fragile items and books.

Storage zipped bag – this is similar to refuse sacks but slightly more durable. These bags are good for storing clothes, but not good when it comes to breakables and heavy items.

Plastic IKEA containers – Those plastic storage containers can be used to transport everything from clothes to breakables, but the containers are easy to be damaged and many times their plastic lids get broken in transit.

Suitcases – If you have lots of old suitcases you can use them to pack your small items, but you will need a lot if you live in a big property. Possible damages could be their handles and wheels. We do not advise buying new suitcases, as this is more expensive than using removal boxes.
