How Much Do Moving Supplies & Moving Boxes Cost?

Whether moving cross country or across the street, your biggest concern is probably the cost of relocating all of your belongings. You want to be prepared, so plan ahead and you’ll know how much money you’ll be spending. At National Van Lines, we can answer some of the freqently asked questions of our budget-conscious customers. Our most commonly asked question is, “How much should I spend on moving supplies?”

Moving, generally, is not something we do every day or even every year. Sure, you know the latest gas prices, but it’d be crazy for you to know the costs of a certain amount of cardboard boxes. It’s understandable that you wouldn’t know where to start.

Let’s Discuss Some Common Moving Supplies You’ll Need:

Cost of Moving Boxes

These are the most important moving supply for your big move. Boxes often range in sizes, depending on what exactly you’re packing. Make sure to buy sturdy, good-quality boxes. For example, if you’re packing a lot of books, you probably want to pack them in a smaller box, because a large box full of books can be pretty heavy. A large box might work better for linens or pillows.

The cost for boxes really depends on how much you need to pack. If you need enough boxes for a three bedroom, two bathroom home, you might be spending around $100-200. National Van Lines and other vendors can supply you with all the boxes needed.

Cost of Tape

How can you seal off your valuables without this? Don’t forget to get clear packing tape, which can be relatively inexpensive. You can get tape and a dispenser for under $20.

Cost of Blankets

These are extremely helpful for your bigger items like large pieces of furniture. The cost of these will vary depending on the vendor. However, here’s a hint: most moving companies will provide them for free. Be sure to research this before you select a company.
