How NC Home Movers Measure Square Feet

Tools for Moving


When moving, costs are often calculated by using square feet. In order to determine your square footage, you will need the following:

  • a tape measure
  • a calculator (or pen and paper)

In order to calculate square feet, measure the length of the room or area and the width of the room or area. Multiply the length and width do determine the square footage of that room or area.

Length x Width = Square Feet

example: If your living room is 14 feet long and 10 feet wide, the square footage of that room is: 140 square feet

To determine the total amount of square feet for your living space, calculate the square footage of each room and add them all together.

For your convenience, use the calculator below to determine square footage. Just enter the length and width and click the calculate button.
