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 (we presume not), then use our removal volume calculator to get an accurate estimate of your volume!

Disclaimer: Our removal volume calculator gives you an estimated volume of your move. Moving companies 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 removal volume calculator can help you for both national and international moving quotes!

What Is the Price of Shipping 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 vague answer may be somewhat frustrating, we have an entire page dedicated to all your shipping container queries, from prices to sizes. You can’t say we don’t look after you 😉.

Choosing an International Moving Company

We hope our removal volume calculator has made your move slightly less stressful. However, relocating overseas is always going to come with a few extra hurdles. The last thing you need to do is waste your time filtering through the saturated market of international moving companies. We are here to help!

Alongside offering free, no obligation quotes, we have also compiled a list of the top international movers in South Africa to help you find the best moving company for your move! We also have our Moving Abroad Checklist to help you organise your international relocation.
