Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs for Working Our Cubic Meters

“Cubic meter” is a unit used to measure volume. In Australia, the correct spelling is “cubic metre,” but both versions are used interchangeably in this article to assist you in finding information. One cubic metre (1 m³) represents a cube with all sides measuring 1 meter in length. Regarding moving boxes, as illustrated, it typically takes about 8 mid to large-sized moving boxes to fill a cubic metre. Additionally, these boxes do not necessarily need to be in the shape of a cube; even if laid side by side in a single row, they will still occupy one cubic metre. So, how do you calculate the cubic metres of your furniture? Click the button or continue reading below.

To determine the cubic metres of your item, follow these steps:

  1. Measure all three dimensions: Length (L), width (W), and height (H).
  2. Use a calculator to multiply all three values to calculate the cubic metres: Item volume (m³) = L x W x H.
  3. Ensure you use the correct units for the initial measurement—always use the value in metres to obtain the volume in cubic metres. For instance, if the depth of your fridge is 64 cm, use 0.64 meters (m) as the value for the calculation.
There’s often confusion about whether to use centimeters, meters, or other units when measuring objects for cubic meter calculations. In Australia, it’s ideal to use values in meters so that the total comes up as cubic meters. Therefore, if an item is e.g. 120cm long, use 1.2 (m) in the calculation.

Many individuals wonder if there are alternative methods or rules of thumb to estimate cubic meters when exact measurements aren’t available. This is definitely possible – just estimate the width, length and height of the item (e.g. is it as long as an A4 paper – that is 0.3m or as your long step – that is 1m etc.)

People often seek reference points or averages for the cubic meter measurements of common household items to gauge the volume of their belongings accurately. We’ve provided a list of the volume of some of the household items on this page and you can also use our online cubic meter calculator to work out the volume of your specific items.

Have used Gold Line twice within the last couple of months, one of which was a very last-minute booking.Gui and the boys (Alex, Enzo, Rick, Robson, and Rodrigo) were all absolutely fantastic to deal with and very accomodating.I know that removalists generally have a poor reputation, but these guys handled everything with care and the wooden floor of the truck bed made sure that my items weren’t damaged.Highly recommended, and will use again!

I have used Gold Line twice in the past 12 months for moves in Sydney. They have been excellent to deal with. The move was for a 3 bedroom house in the lower North Shore.On each move the Gold Line staff were punctual, friend and professional. They were careful with my possessions and got the moves done quickly and efficiently. I recommend without hesitation.

I cannot speak highly enough about the service provided.The two gentlemen moving my belongings were so careful with my things. It was a much bigger job than I anticipated and access was not as straightforward as I thought it would be.There were added complications, with settlement being delayed by an hour and the agent not meeting me at the destination to handover keys, as planned. Nevertheless, the gentlemen moving my things, stayed calm, professional and continued smiling.I highly recommend Gold Line Removals for any move.Thank you!

Had to make a last minute booking, I was very unprepared but this company just made everything so seamless and easy and nothing was too difficult for them. The process was so quick and I had so many things, on top of that all my fragile glassware and all my plants were so well taken care of. From start to finish it was A+, I hope the bosses pay these boys well because they deserve it. Will definitely use this company again.
