How can you “guesstimate” the number of Monster Totes moving boxes needed?
Each business operation is different and more and more companies shift from paper to online administration and communication. It can be challenging to estimate the required number of moving boxes for a commercial move. The nature of a business may include an archive and hundreds to thousands of files (like a legal or medical practice). – Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions
How many Monster Totes do we need… and how do we order boxes for our commercial or office move?
A Monster Tote measures 24″x 17″x 12″ which fits approx. 2 feet (or 24 inches) of either letter or legal size files/file folders and still has some room left. So when you measure the filing cabinets in your office you can easily calculate how many boxes you would need per cabinet.
A small office with just a few employees may require maybe 25 or 35 totes whereas a larger office may need 50, 70 or even 100+ totes. It really depends. The totes don’t know the difference between private and commercial; you may as well use the regular online order form, select a bundle size and order a “xyz bedroom bundle”” although you are using the boxes for a corporate move. The residential and commercial rates are the same up to an order size of 75 boxes.
Monster Tote’s commercial pricing starts with 75+ boxes; for quantities above 75 boxes and rental periods longer than 3 weeks please contact your local Monster Tote location and ask for their assistance.
If you are not sure how many boxes you require you can start with a bundle (or a certain number of boxes) and add on, e.g. have us bring a second or even a third delivery. This is not uncommon. We will pro-rate the charges and make sure you get our best rates.
With Monster Tote, corporate moves are convenient, affordable and green. Using Monster Tote moving boxes saves trees, reduces cardboard garbage in landfills and lowers your carbon footprint.
Please call or email your local Monster Tote location if you have further questions or to discuss your moving box needs for your next corporate move.
