Boxes and packing you will need to move

Boxes and packing material is relatively easy to find however the price and cost of packing for your move can become quite expensive. There is no simple box kit for any given dwelling so what we have done in our chart below is to give you an idea of cost you can expect to have. Again this chart of boxes and other packing materials is on average what we move from each type of apartment or home.

When boxing start as early as you can with your packing. Normally you can start with things and clothes you rarely use. We would also advise doing one room at a time or one part of your home at a time and just work your way through. At any time that you are packing and decide you need help, you can call South Coast Movers and we'll be glad to help with last minute packing and perhaps a same day move. We are here to help with your packing and move with a fair price.
