Not sure how many moving boxes you will need for your move? Why not try a moving box calculator? A moving box calculator helps you calculate how many boxes you will need for your move, which can make for a much smoother move and hopefully allow you to get as many, if not a few more, boxes than you will need. No one likes to run out of boxes when packing your home, which is why a moving box calculator is such a neat concept.
Do a simple Internet search for "moving box calculator" and pick one that interests you. Most likely you will be asked to input how many rooms you are moving, counting the attic and the garage as a room. From there you will be taken to a page that has recommendations for specific number of boxes you will need. For example, if you put you are moving three rooms, you will most likely see a recommendation that says you should have 24 medium boxes, 12 large boxes, 6 extra large boxes and then a few other accessories you will need for packing.
A moving box calculator can take some of the guesswork out of packing your home for a move.
