How many moving boxes do I need?

The number of boxes varies greatly depending on the size of the residence. Generally, you should count 10 to 15 boxes per room. Do you have more clothes than the average, or more toys for your children? Plan accordingly. If you are rather methodical, it is possible to make a general inventory of your goods, then estimate the number of boxes based on this. Otherwise, here is an approximation of the number of moving boxes required based on the size of your home:

  • Studio: 10 to 20 moving boxes
  • 2½ and 3½: 20 to 40 moving boxes
  • 4½: 40 to 60 moving boxes
  • Two-bedroom house: 60 to 80 moving boxes
  • Three-bedroom house: 80 to 100 moving boxes
  • Four-bedroom house: 100-120 moving boxes

What are the dimensions of the moving boxes?

The dimensions of the boxes are usually compared in volume (e.g. 1.5 cubic feet), edge length (e.g. 16 ” X 13 ” X 12 ”) or more simply, in generic terms (small, medium, large).

A small box is ideal for storing books, tableware, or anything that has a considerable weight. It is best not to fill a large box with books, since it will be difficult to move it. Conversely, large boxes are useful for carrying bedding, clothing, pillows, plastic toys, etc. To summarize:

  • Small boxes of 1.5 cubic feet (16 in X 13 in X 12 in): ideal for books, tableware, canned food, etc.
  • Medium boxes of 2 cubic feet (20 in X 13 in X 13 in): ideal for kitchen items, bathroom accessories, various objects.
  • Large boxes of 4 cubic feet (19.5 in X 15.5 in X 23 in): ideal for clothes, frames, lamps, toys, etc.
  • Very large boxes of 6 cubic feet (24 in X 19 in X 23 in): ideal for clothes, jackets, pillows, and other large light weight items.

What to do with my cardboard boxes after the move?

The move is complete, and you now have all of these boxes. What should you do with it? First, know that cardboard boxes are recycled. It is therefore a question of folding them and putting them in the recycling bin for the next collection. But there are other possibilities!

  1. Do you know someone who is moving next month and who may want them? It’s worth asking at the office, on your sports team, or on your social media. If you don’t know anyone moving, post them on resale or donation sites, like Kijiji or Marketplace for example.
  2. Do you have space in the garage? Store them for a future move, or a friend’s.
  3. Just use them! Here are 35 ideas to repurpose your cardboard boxes.

When to start packing for a move?

Don’t wait! It is not too early to start 3 months before the move. A good first step is to look around your storage spaces to get a good idea of ​​the task ahead. Start with winter clothes for example, or items that you do not use much. Who knows, you may decide to sell unused accessories!

The last month before the move is often very stressful as there are several tasks to take care of. If you’ve already done some of the packaging, and even cleaned some cabinets, then that will be one less thing to have in mind.
