2 Ways to Calculate Volume
100 Litres = 0.10 Cubic Meters (CBM) = Tea Chest Box.
It can be very difficult trying to visualise how much you can pack into a certain sized box. Typically, people underestimate just how large some boxes can be. Even if you can find someone to pick up a large packing box, the bottom may fall out of an over packed cardboard box.
Most professional removal companies will have a maximum lift limit, typically about 50 kgs, and even family and friends should take care lifting.
Working out the volume required in advance can help:-
void purchasing the wrong size or number of cardboard moving boxes,
select the right vehicle if hiring a truck/van,
obtain an accurate quote if using a professional removal company (as they usually work in total volume).
Most of our boxes have the volume on the side of the packing box or you can use this formula.
CBM = (Height CM x Width CM x Depth CM) ÷ 100
Volume in LITRES = (CBM x 100) + 0.1
Another way to Calculate Volume in LITRES
10 Tea Chest Boxes x 100L = 1000 Litres
10 Medium Boxes x 70 L = 700 Litres
10 Small Boxes x 40L = 400 Litres
In this example you will be moving 2100 Litres or 2.1 Cubic Meters.
