Moving Services 101: U-Haul Truck Rentals


Change is the only permanent thing in our lives. This may come in the form of moving from one place to another. When you move, you probably would bring your valuable things with you. If you have lots of stuff, they may not fit your car. The wisest advice that anyone can give you is to look for u-haul truck rentals. But not just any truck for that matter; the truck should be of the right size with a trusted name.

Finding the right u-haul truck rentals is important for two reasons: one, a right sized truck-for-rent allows you to maximize the space without overpaying, and two, a trusted name with a good reputation assures you that your valuable items will be delivered unscathed. U Haul trucks are the most popular ones across the country. They have a large fleet of trucks which gives clients more options to choose from. U-Haul truck rentals in the country also offer storage options compared with companies that do not offer U-Haul truck rentals.

Before you start calling u-haul truck rentals, determine first the size of the truck that you have to rent. Standard sizes of u-haul truck rentals include 350 cubic feet, 750 cubic feet, 1,250 cubic feet, and 1,550 cubic feet. Here are some tips to help you know which one you should rent:

  1. Make an inventory of the things you are bringing with you. Separate those items that can be stacked from those that cannot be stacked. Separate the larger ones from the small ones. This helps in planning the positions of the items that you will place inside the rental truck.
  2. Measure the dimensions of your furniture, shelves, appliances, and other equipment. This will determine the dimensions and number of boxes you will need.
  3. Estimate the amount of cubic feet that your stuff will occupy by measuring the volume in cubic feet of each box and furniture that you have. Add these individual measurements, and choose the size of the rental truck based from this.

These three things should never be forgotten when looking for u-haul rental trucks. With the proper truck size and brand name, you can rest assured that your belongings are traveling safely while you are on the road.
