Rent or Hire a Moving Truck

Updated: Nov 22, 2023

Depending on the size of your home and the amount of furniture you have, you'll need to decide between the 10', 15', 20', or 26' moving truck rental. When it comes to renting a truck, size matters, keep in mind that is better to have extra room than not having enough. The difference in price is not too much,  besides the bit extra money you are spending will help you avoid multiple trips resulting in paying more on gas and miles. Also, it will be easier and less stressful to pack a truck with enough space than trying to jam everything on a smaller truck.
