Need packing materials for your move?
Most people find that they have more to pack when they move than they realise.
With our expert sizing guidelines, we can advise you on the boxes and packing materials you need to ensure you don't run out before everything is packed safely.
Whether you are packing yourself, or enlisting the professional help of our ladies, you will need boxes, white butchers paper to wrap and protect items in the boxes, tape and markers.
How many boxes do you require?
Here is a guide to what you will need to get everything packed up and ready to move, based on how many bedrooms your home has.
As a general rule, purchase a ratio of half small boxes and half large so you have the right mix for large, heavy, small and breakable items.
Specialised moving cartons can also be bought for hanging clothing, artwork, televisions, golf clubs and wine.
You will also need paper and tape. If you have a lot of breakables, buy extra paper to protect your precious items.
50+ boxes (at least 25 small and 25 large)
80+ boxes (at least 40 small and 40 large)
100+ boxes (at least 50 small and 50 large)
120+ boxes (at least 60 small and 60 large)
You will need 1 roll of tape for every 20 boxes to be packed.
Also purchase 1kg of white paper for every 3 boxes to be packed.
