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!

Moving Tips & Guides
What is the ProMover Program?
The American Moving & Storage Association launched the ProMover Program to give people the peace of mind they deserve when getting ready to move. The program’s main goal is to fight the spread of imposters and rogue movers who take advantage of people. Not just any mover can become a ProMover, though. Any company that wishes to become a ProMover must undergo strict review by AMSA.
Ask About Extra Costs
Don’t be afraid to ask the moving company questions about extra fees that may come up. If you haven’t used adequate materials in packing your belongings, you can be charged for packing supplies. There may be extra fees for moving from a big city. They may charge you extra for any number of reasons, so it’s important to make sure that you have an idea of everything that they want to charge you either up front or just make sure that you’re clear on why they’re charging you extra.
The Different Types of Moving ...
During your move, you are likely to use the services of a moving agent. These agents handle the logistics of the move, such as making the appropriate arrangements and acting as a liaison between you and the moving company. Though you are likely to use moving agents for any type of move, their roles are especially crucial during long-distance and international moves.
