If you are moving furniture as part of moving home or office, you will have an endless list of the different things that you need to do. One of these things that you will need to do is to make a list of everything that you are going to be moving and to calculate the amount in terms of volume, in other words you need to calculate it’s volume in cubic meters. This can be complex, especially if you have a lot of items. However, there are different tools and solutions that are available today to make this a lot easier.

Why do you need to measure in cubic meters

Before we reveal how to measure cubic meters, it is first important to establish why you even need to do this in the first place. Surely you can just call up a removal company and get them to move your belongings without having to worry about this? Well you could do this, but the chances are that you could over book the amount of transport needed or even worse, you could under book the amount of transport needed which could delay the move unnecessarily which could end up costing you even more expense. Not only this but you will not be able to budget effectively either, as you will have no idea in terms of the volume you are moving. You have also essentially robbed yourself of the opportunity to search around for the best deal as well because you won’t be able to compare prices, like with like.

So what is a cubic meter?

A cubic meter is a space that will measure one meter x one meter x one meter. So, if you are to figure out the cubic meter for a certain piece of furniture, you need to multiply the piece’s length by the width and then by the height. For instance, let’s say you have a dresser that is 2.08 meters in length, 0.99 meters in height, and 1.5 meters in width. The calculation is 1.5 x 0.99 x 2.08. Therefore, you are going to have a measurement of 3.08 cubic meters.

What else will have an impact on how much it costs for you to move?

There are a number of different factors that are going to have an impact on how much it costs for you to move home or office. Of course, the volume of items you are going to be moving is critical. This is important because it will dictate how many vehicles are needed and also how long it is going to take in terms of packaging. However, this is not the only factor that needs to be assessed when putting together an accurate quote. 

Aside from this, the distance you are going to be travelling is going to be taken into account. Naturally, the longer the journey, the more fuel, and the greater hours put in by the workforce in question, and so this will lead to a higher quote. You also need to think about whether there are any access issues or whether there are any items that require special handling too. 

When you choose a reliable and reputable company to assist you with the move, they are going to be able to give you a full breakdown of all of the costs entailed. This will help you to see exactly why you have been given the quote that you have been given, so you can be sure that it is accurate and fair and that you have not been charged for anything that you should not have been.
