Hello, and thank you for contacting us with your question regarding truck size. "What size truck do I need?" is a question we often get here at, and I'd be happy to help. Use these guidelines as a reference:

  • 12' = studio apartment
    *Generally, 10' or 12' box trucks should only be used for local moves.*
  • 14' = 1 bedroom apartment
  • 16' or 17' = 1-2 bedrooms (big apartment/small home)
  • 20' = townhouse or generic single family
  • 22'+ = larger homes

If you are unsure if your items will fit, always opt for a larger size vehicle. If you aren't trained as a mover, defer to a larger size as well. Moving companies are trained to maximize the space used, but your friends and family are not. Consider using a moving labor company to pack your truck!
