Some removals companies include boxes for no additional charge. If you need to buy boxes from your removals company, buying a set, rather than individual boxes, usually works out cheaper.
On average, to pack up a 3 – 4-bedroom house you will need:
- 12 small boxes
- 16 medium boxes
- 10 large boxes
- 20 metres of bubble wrap
- One roll of tape
You might also want to get some speciality boxes from your removal company. Wardrobe boxes can be ideal as they have a rail inside so your clothes don’t get creased, plus you can use them as temporary wardrobes. Mirror boxes can help prevent breakages, while reinforced book boxes can transport items up to a combined weight of 40kg.
