Sirelo’s Furniture Volume Calculator
By using our furniture volume calculator, you can find out the total volume of your furniture in cubic foot (ft³) in a matter of clicks. But how do I use the tool? It’s easy really, just follow our three steps below!
- Click all the personal belongings you intend on taking with you to add them.
- The calculator will then automatically provide you with the estimated volume of your move.
- You can then send it to your email for safekeeping, or directly request quotes through Sirelo!
Why Use the Furniture Volume Calculator?
Since no move is exactly the same, requesting quotes is crucial to get accurate figures on your moving costs. Along with the distance of your move, the volume of your things plays a huge role in calculating costs. So, unless you enjoy being overcharged, then use our furniture volume calculator to get an accurate estimate of your volume!
Disclaimer: Our removal volume calculator gives you an estimated volume of your move. Removalists will usually need to see your belongings after you have requested quotes to perform a more precise calculation. Read our page on the moving survey for more information.
What Other Factors Affect the Moving Cost?
Although volume is a decisive factor for your final moving cost, there are several other things to consider when calculating the cost of your move. The following are other factors that affect your removal cost:
- The distance: the longer your goods are in transit, the more expensive it will be.
- The route: if your route is obscure and remote, the costs will increase.
- Mode of transport: choosing to travel via air freight, for example, is more expensive than via sea or road.
- Special items: if you have items such as fine art or a piano, a surplus can be charged.

But our furniture volume calculator can help you for both interstate and international moving quotes!

How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Container Overseas?
Much like other aspects of your move, there is no specific answer! The cost of shipping a container depends on where you are sending it to, as well as what size of container you are using. Our removal volume calculator can help you calculate your volume so that you can decide what container type and size you need.
Since this doesn’t really answer your question, check out our Container Shipping Costs page, which outlines what you should take into account when calculating the cost and the size of your move when shipping your furniture overseas. Don’t say we didn’t help!
