Establishing volume for Inter-Island Moving
Prepacking, Cartons and Load Description
This is not the daunting task you may fear, just an observational journey room to room in your home.
You need not concern yourself with measuring items. Large, medium or small is quite sufficient. It is easy to list furniture items, but more complicated to make a judgment as to how many boxes overall.
That is where mistakes and oversights are usually made. Most volume calculation errors involve the number of boxes.
The Kitchen is a good starting place as it is usually the biggest job and best handled first. On completion you may be quite amazed at the number of cartons that can be required to complete this area.
Start at the doorway and work in one direction around the room back to the starting point, opening each bank of cupboards in turn working in this manner you deal with each item or cupboard in an orderly sequence.
As each room is completed, double check for any omissions and leave a few blank lines in case there are changes or additions before surveying the next room.
Ignore online calculators to survey your home. The figures they arrive at are more or less a guide, but do not take into account the final stacked volume in the vehicle and this is the most important point of the whole exercise.
Most volume errors are in the number of boxes in the household.
Many items will present difficulties due to shape or have empty volume within. Picnic tables, Gym equipment and similar odd shapes can pose difficulties. Only an expert loader will know how to interpret volume allowance. There are so many variables.
We will assist you every step of the way to get the volume calculation just right.
Perhaps the most difficult parameter to deal with is having that good old fashioned throw out of all the stuff you know you should have dealt with ages ago.
We all are guilty on this one. Once you start it gets really easy, just biff and biff. It feels really good once it's gone.
