It's just as critical to get the right moving truck size when moving all your belongings. If you picked the wrong size truck, anything you pack inside could be jeopardized. It is also more costly to hire a larger truck than a small one, so there's also the budget to remember.

A truck that's just right is what you need. You first need to take stock of what you've been moving and measure how much space it will fill in order to find the perfect truck size. Next, for a truck with the perfect storage capacity, you'll need to shop around.

To find the right truck size for your move, keep reading to get all the tips you need.

You may not know which truck size is right for your move if you've moved just a handful of times, or if this is your first time. If the company you rent from advertises only for small, medium, and large sizes that do not match the exact load size you need, it's much more complicated.

Although the truck sizes that are recommended by most moving companies are helpful recommendations, most of them are not reliable. However, it will give you an idea of what truck size you may need.

Home size Recommended truck size
1 bedroom apartment 10 to 16 feet
2 bedroom apartment 12 to 22 feet
3 bedroom house 16 to 22 feet
5 bedroom house 22 to 26 feet.

 

The table shown above isn't precise, as you can see, and often the sizes differ. There really is no specific square footage aligned with any home size, for one thing, and just because two homes have the same number of rooms does not mean that they have the same amount of things and size of the room.

How to pick the right truck size for your move?

The perfect way to determine what truck you need is to directly call a moving company. By talking to them, you can elaborate on your situation and they can tell you how much volume you would need for your belongings, depending on how many boxes, how many beds you have, and everything included on your move. Calling directly to professionals is the best way to get the perfect truck. 

What things to consider when you’re calculating?

How many bedrooms do you have? How many boxes do you need to load?  

1. How many items do you have?
2. How big are your belongings furnishings? Do you have any things that might require special care that is oversized, bulky, or fragile?
3. Where are you moving to? Consider the distance. Is it far?
