Cardboard Box Size
It is best to buy small, medium and large cardboard boxes with the same cardboard box size. Moving boxes last for a longer period compared to regular strength boxes and safeguard your things far better. Some boxes are equipped for bulkier moving and delicate objects. Small boxes may be used for smaller or weightier things for example textbooks. Medium boxes may be used for the kitchen area items, kids toys, electronic devices, or disks. Best use for bigger cardboard boxes are for bed linen, bath towels, bedroom pillows, and kitchen area items. If you are not buying a kit keep in mind you will need packing paper, bubble rolls and foam products to pack your things for protection of breakage.
When assembling your moving equipment make sure to have a cutting knife, screwdriver, wrench, hammer and marker pens available. You will likely have to take apart household furniture, baby cribs, bed frames, and you will definitely require equipment for taking them a part. Marker pens will be useful so that you can clearly label boxes according to room destination. This can be particularly handy when you wish to unpack or your things are in storage. Or you may buy color coordinated labels very cheap so that you can spot the color room you need right away.
Estimating Boxes and Storage Requirements
A condo or apartment with 2-3 rooms in will require about 10 small and 20 medium boxes to go along with specialty boxes. You will need 1 roll of tape and one 50' bubble wrap and paper. If moving into a storage unit you will probably require a 10 x 10 storage space to accommodate your boxes and furniture.
When you have 3-5 rooms you will require at least 20 small boxes, 20 medium boxes and 15 large boxes. You really should have 2-3 packing tape rolls and 50' roll of bubble, packing tape and newsprint. If storing a three bedroom home you will need at least, a 10 x 10 or at most a 10 x 20 storage unit locker.
If you've got 5 or even more rooms in the home, you'll need approximately 20 small boxes, 25 medium boxes and 30 large boxes. You will require four 55' rolls of packaging tape. Don't forget bubble wrap and packing paper. If you need a temporary storage rental for 5 or more rooms you will need a 10x20 or 10x30 if you have a lot of stuff. Shop early many storage companies have deals on first month rental or coupons and discounts.
Remember to keep your home looking larger for buyers you may want to rent a storage space first and declutter your home. Staging your home generally sells faster and for more money.
