If you’re prepared to pack and haul your belongings yourself and just need something to transport your stuff in, a moving van or truck rental is the way to go.
U-Haul is one of the most recognizable names in the moving world in part because its services are available almost everywhere. And with a wide range of truck sizes it’s also a great option for small local moves.
Trucks from coast to coast
Boasting the largest moving rental truck company fleet, U-Haul's availability stretches from coast to coast. Much like PODS, if the closest U-Haul location doesn’t have your truck size available, you’ll more than likely be able to go to another nearby location and find what you need there.
5 truck sizes to choose from
U-Haul offers a whole host of truck sizes to choose from, beating out the industry standard of only small, medium, and large sizes. And U-Haul’s in-between sizes keep you from overpaying because you can match your truck’s capacity more closely to the load you’re moving.
Here’s the full list of the truck sizes U-Haul offers:
- 10-foot truck
- 15-foot truck
- 17-foot truck
- 20-foot truck
- 26-foot truck
The 26-foot truck doesn’t apply as directly to apartment moves since most apartments don’t have more than four bedrooms, but when you’re estimating your load, it’s worth considering extra stuff you might have lying around in storage.
U-Haul also offers pickup truck and cargo van rentals, so if you’re moving out of a studio apartment, you may be able to fit everything you own into one of these instead of a fully-fledged moving truck.
