Moving Supplies FAQs

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 – 40-60 boxes
  • 3 bedrooms property – 70-100 boxes

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 specialized moving box designed specifically for transporting hanging clothes. It typically features a tall, sturdy structure with a metal bar across the top to hang garments securely. These boxes help prevent clothes from wrinkling or getting damaged during the moving process.

What is a ”Linen box”?

Movers and moving companies may refer to linen boxes as “linen cartons” or simply “linens.” When packing for a move, these specialized boxes are often used to pack and protect linens, bedding, and other similar items. They are typically designed to be sturdy and provide adequate protection for linens during the moving process. They can be mainly used for packing clothes, bedding and sheets, pillows, lamp shades, light plastic items, toys and other light household items.

What is a ”Book box”?

A book box, sometimes called a “book carton” or “small box,” is a type of packing box specifically designed for transporting books and other heavy or dense items when moving house. These boxes are typically smaller and sturdier than standard moving boxes, making them ideal for holding books, magazines, DVDs, and similar items.

Book boxes are mainly used for packing and moving heavy objects because they are more manageable in size and weight. Since books can become extremely heavy when packed together, using smaller, specialized boxes helps prevent overloading and makes it easier for movers to carry and transport them safely. These boxes also help protect the books from damage during the move, ensuring that they remain in good condition. Additionally, the compact size of book boxes allows for efficient packing and stacking in moving trucks, maximizing space utilization during the move.
