What Size Rental Truck Will I Need?

The size of the truck you rent should depend on the size of your household and how much you need transported. Many truck rental companies will go by the number of bedrooms you are moving. For example, if you have a three bedroom house you can choose from a 17 foot truck or a 24 foot truck (size will vary by company).

If your three bedroom house is very small and doesn't include a basement or shed, etc or more than one bathroom, you may be able to fit your belongings on a truck that is 16 or 17 feet. However, if you have three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a basement and a shed out back, you may want to look at a truck around 24 feet. It really all depends on what you are moving. If you have a lot of large items, such as a washer and dryer and a refrigerator along with your other household items, you won't want to reserve a truck that is small in size, because those big items will take up a lot of space.

The best way to determine what size of truck rental is best for you is to really take a long look at your belongings, maybe a make list of everything you must pack, and then check out different companies truck sizes and then make an informed decision before reserving your rental truck.
