One Bedroom Home or Flat
A customer living in a one bedroom flat, bedsit or very small house will typically require a small storage space, which measures at 500 cubic feet and would need between 10-20 boxes approximately. We would use the smallest vehicle on our fleet a 3.5 ton to help keep your house moving costs lower. There is no need paying for a vehicle that is too big!
Two Bedroom Home
Typically, a customer living in a two bedroomed home or flat would require approximately 750 cubic feet of storage, and we would estimate around 20-30 boxes. We would use a 7.5tonne vehicle to carry out this removal and if storage was required, we feel between 2-3 containers would be sufficient.
Three Bedroom Home
A family living in a three bedroomed home would usually have an average of 1000 cubic feet, would require around 40-50 boxes. We would at this initial stage recommend scheduling a rep visit to ascertain the best sized vehicle needed to complete your removal. If you needed to store the contents of this sized property for a period of time then usually 3-4 storage containers would be needed.
Four Bedroom Home
A family living in an average sized four bedroomed home would usually have several items of furniture to move and lots of other general belongings. For properties of this size we would recommend scheduling a visit from one of our experienced reps to determine the vehicles needed to carry out your removal. An average sized 4 bed home would measure 1500 cubic feet, need approximately 50-70 boxes for packing. Storing the contents of a house this size would require approximately 5-6 storage containers.
