3' x 3' x 3' = 27 Cubic Feet
27 Cubic Feet = 1 Cubic Yard
To calculate the volume of your truck or trailer load.....
Multiply the length (in feet) by the width (in feet) by the height (in feet) - Cubic Feet (CF)
Divide Cubic Feet by 27 = Truck/Trailer volume in Cubic Yards (CuYds)
Example: 12.5' (l) X 5.5' (w) X 2' (h) = 5.09 CubicYards 27 Cubic Feet
