REMOVAL SUPPLIES

How many boxes do I need for my removal?

 

All removals are different, some people are hoarders and are used to
keeping everything and some are minimalists and do not need too
much around them. However, most people are somewhere
on the scale between these two points.

We have some suggestions on quantities needed to help you move. It is
only a rough guide, as a bookworm’s needs may be different
to someone with an extensive shoe collection.

As a rule of thumb, it is better to have about 50% of your boxes in a medium
size and 25% larger and 25% smaller. However, lots of books may need
more of the smaller sizes. You may also wish to consider a small
number of extra-large boxes for pillows, duvets and
cushions etc. – especially in larger homes.

For hanging clothes, some people use wardrobe boxes – others manage to
pack without them. They are 18” (38cm) wide. So if you measure the
length of rails of hanging clothes in your closet you can estimate
how many of these boxes you may need. They might save
you having to iron your clothes after your removal!

Please note we sell marker pens to itemise your household contents
(important!). Also we sell fragile stickers and polythene
sofa/mattress covers of all sizes.

If you have any questions we are here on 0207 3718333 to advise you.
Please feel free to call from 8.30am – 6pm M – F and 9am – 4pm Sat.
