About Online Measures
A simple, affordable way for businesses to have projects accurately measured. We have qualified experts ready to start your project today!
Online Measures was started by a quantity surveyor and a painting and decorating tradesman, who was constantly dealing with the frustration of being undercut in tenders and pricing projects by competitive painting companies. This experience bought the realisation that these companies needed to learn how to quote more accurately, particularly after talking to clients who had bad experiences signing up with a competing painting company. This is how Online Measures started; and now we have 6 QS’S working full time with clients throughout NZ and AU.
Today, Online Measures offers great value pay-per-use services that give you accurate take-off measures for your painting, plastering, and steel stud requirements, fast!
It’s so easy to get started. Choose from one of our convenient packages, then simply upload your plans and specifications with information about the requirement. Each substrate is accurately measured and itemised in a detailed, yet clear spreadsheet and sent back to you within 5 days. For more complex projects, give us a call to discuss your needs.
Behind the scenes we have a team of qualified, experienced quantity surveyors skilled in the art of accurate take off measures and equipped with the latest software to ensure precise measurements that result in a profitable job.
Our pricing, commitment to accuracy and background in the trades makes us the perfect partner for your business. Using Online Measures saves time, helps project efficiencies and betters tender opportunities. It also ensures nothing is missed off your quote to the customer, eliminating the risk of costly surprises. In fact, we’re confident that if you try us once, you’ll use us forever.
Finally, there’s a simple, affordable way for painters and plasterers to have projects accurately measured.
About Online Measures
and our process
Who are Online Measures?

Simple processes, detailed outcomes
Each substrate is accurately measured and itemised in a detailed, yet self-explanatory formulated spreadsheet and sent back to you within 5 days. You then add your pricing and it’s automatically totalled for you at the bottom. There’s also the ability to add GST and any required trade or customer discount structure. For projects that are a little more complex and don’t have ready-made package solutions, give us a call to discuss your needs.
How do we make it so affordable? Because it’s very specific. You pay only for the QS services you as a painting or plastering business need, not all the extras. Plus, we’re online, reducing overheads to almost nil — savings we can pass on to you.
You don’t have to be a big player to benefit from our service. Helping small businesses achieve their goals was where it all started for us. In fact, you may not have the need or budget to retain a QS ongoing. Our service offers everything needed without the hefty price.
