What Size Moving Truck Do You Need?

What size moving truck you should rent depends on a variety of different factors. Go through your home room-by-room and make a list of the major pieces of furniture you have. Starting here should give you a good indication of the size of the moving truck you will rent.

Include the large items like beds, dressers, furniture, whiteware and any other items that will not fit into a box.  Keep in mind that mattresses and box springs take up a lot of space, so 2 king beds with box springs need a lot of space compared to queen bed mattresses that are on a slate frame.

You also should consider your move: Is it in-town or one-way? For in-town moves, you may be more likely to pack less things and just place them in the truck loose, requiring more space in the back of your truck.  However this is offset with the ability to make multiple trips if needed.

Once you have this done, you can pick your truck size.  Keep in mind the below sizing is general and you need to consider all your possessions when deciding on the proper truck size for you.

For a studio or a one-bedroom apartment you will likely need a small moving truck.  Our furniture van, 9 and 12 cubic metre trucks are best designed for this size of move.  Things to consider include:  local or longer distance move, manual vs automatic transmission and the the need for a tail gate.  If you have heavy items like large furniture or whiteware it is best to get a tailgate however if you are mostly moving boxes and smaller then you should avoid a tail gate as it adds length to the back of the truck making you move your boxes twice and opt for the 9 cubic metre or furniture van instead.

For those who need to move belongings from a larger apartment or a small home (think 1-2 bedrooms), our 17 cubic metre larger-sized moving truck might fit the bill. It is well suited to both local and long-distance moves. It isn’t enormous and has an automatic transmission making it relatively easy to drive, while still offering quite a bit of space for your belongings. This is our most popular moving truck so make sure to book early.

Moving out of a larger apartment or home (think two or three plus bedrooms) requires a lot of space on the moving truck for all your belongings, and that’s where our 20 cubic metre large moving truck come in. it is our most spacious option that you can still drive on a class 1 drivers licence. If you have a lot of belongings, this might be the right choice for you.
