How Many Boxes are Needed to Move a 3 Bedroom House?

Posted in: Moving Advice

Moving into a new house is a big job and there are many things you need to take into consideration. However, the process of moving house is unthinkable without any cardboard boxes and packing materials. Aside from the larger furniture items, such as sofas, beds, and tables, most of your belongings need to be packed into boxes for protection and easy transportation.

Calculating exactly how many boxes you need for your move can be a huge time saver. So, we thought we’d let you know how many boxes you need to move a 3 bedroom house.

So How Many Boxes Will you Need?

Stack of Cardboard BoxesThere are a number of factors that affect the number of cardboard boxes you’ll need to move house successfully. The average number of cardboard boxes needed for a successful house move are around 60.

And that’s all well and good, but how many boxes do you need to pack and move your belongings? It is very common for people to underestimate the number of boxes needed to successfully move. Below are the common factors you need to consider:

Number of Rooms: it goes without saying that the more rooms there are in a property, the more cardboard packing boxes will be needed.

Number of People: do you live with a lot of other people? The more people live in a property, the more personal belongings there will be that require packing and moving.

How Long You’ve Lived There: the longer you’ve lived in the property, the more items you have likely accumulated over time.

What Kind of Lifestyle You Lead: are you a minimalist when it comes to material possessions or would you label yourself as a hoarder? Either way, the number of boxes you need will depend on the type of lifestyle you lead.

Have You Decluttered Your Home? Decluttering your home before moving into a new property can make a huge difference to the number of boxes you will need. Have you got rid of unwanted furniture or taken bags of clothes and items to the charity shop? Then you’ll definitely need fewer boxes.
