Irish Home Moves

How do I calculate my volume when moving home ?

The rule of thumb for sizing up moves is the following


  • Allow a large box for every door of a wardrobe
  • Allow a box for each large drawer


  • Allow one box for every full kitchen cupboard
  • Quantify the number of books 30-40 average sized books  fills one box and list the furniture item


  • 30-40 average/novel sized books  fills one pack 1 box 


List out your furniture, soft furnishings and toys for each room that you want to bring with you - your removal company will be able to help you volumize for shipping

Air Freight prices are based on packed weight and size

Sea Shipments are based on size of shipment 

Groupage is based on volume of shipment

How far in advance of my house move should I book?

The best time to do this is as soon as possible!  Oman BeverlySmyth will try to accommodate dates requested from our clients.  Our diary fills up very quickly so it is good to have your move date in mind when having your survey carried out.

What does Oman Beverly Smyth include in their quotes?

Once one of our team helps to determine your volume;  a local or national move includes cost of uplift crew, vehicles, packing materials and delivery to residence.  Transit insurance is an additional cost and will be discussed before the move takes place with one of our qualified reps. 

How do you calculate the cost of our move?

Generally if your moving with in Ireland your cost is based on volume. The amount of items and space it takes up in a vehicle. The volume determines the size of vehicle used and number of crew needed to pack, uplift and move your goods from point to point. 

When should I arrange a quotation?

Give yourself plenty of time to arrange for one of our reps to either come and visit you in your home or do a video call to carry out a survey. We need to know the volume of your items and a survey will help to determine this.  You will need to have this done some weeks in advance of your move!
