Moving houses comes with many different questions and one of the main ones is how many boxes you need and which size you may need. While the size of your house and how much stuff you have will determine the exact answer to these questions, there are some guidelines you can follow when trying to see how many moving boxes you should buy.
Moving boxes come in many different sizes. There are small, medium, large, and extra large. There are also special wardrobe boxes where you can hang your clothes without needing to fold them and wrinkle them.
Here is a little more information about each one.
Different Sizes of Moving Boxes
Most small boxes are about 16 inches by 12 inches by 12 inches. They are meant to hold small items around the house like kitchen utensils, coffee cups, small books, or other trinkets.
Medium boxes are the most common size as they can hold towels, clothes, photos, and other decorations you have in the home. They measure around 18 inches by 16 inches by 18 inches.
