Updated: Mar 8

Moving can be a stressful experience, but it doesn't have to be. By calculating your moving supplies needs ahead of time, you can make the process go more smoothly. Here are some tips for calculating moving supplies for families:

  1. Start by counting the number of rooms in your home. This will give you a rough estimate of how many boxes you will need.

  2. Consider the size of your belongings. If you have a lot of large or bulky items, you will need more boxes.

  3. Think about the type of belongings you have. If you have a lot of fragile items, you will need packing materials that will protect them from damage.

  4. Get estimates from moving companies. Some moving companies will provide you with an estimate of the number of boxes you will need.

  5. Factor in the cost of packing materials. You will need to purchase packing paper, tape, and other materials to pack your belongings.

Here is a formula you can use to calculate the number of moving boxes you will need:


Number of boxes =

(number of rooms) x

(average number of boxes per room)


For example, if you have a 3-bedroom home and the average number of boxes per room is 10, you will need 30 boxes.

Once you have calculated the number of boxes you need, you can start to think about the type of packing materials you will need. For fragile items, you will need bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or other materials that will protect them from damage. For other items, you can use packing paper and tape.

You can also get estimates from moving companies for the number of boxes and packing materials you will need. This can be helpful if you are not sure how many boxes you need or if you want to get an estimate of the cost of moving supplies.

By following these tips, you can calculate your moving supplies needs ahead of time and make sure you have everything you need for a smooth move.
