When you need to move your home, office, or collectibles to a
Manhattan storage facility, you have to be prepared—especially if you’re planning to
rent a moving truck. Here are some key things you should know to help
make choosing a quality moving truck a breeze.
Volume of Belongings
Before you can make the right decision on which kind of moving truck to
rent, you have to make an inventory of everything that’s going to
be moved—including boxes, furniture, appliances, and electronics.
The amount of stuff you have to move and the
size of your storage unit should determine the size of truck you’ll need. Check out your moving
company’s truck-sizing guidelines to help you choose the right vehicle.
Otherwise, consult with your local moving and storage experts in NYC for
One of the most critical aspects to think about when choosing a moving
truck is size. Renting a moving truck that’s too small or too big
can create unnecessary problems. Usually, the easiest way to choose a
moving truck with the right capacity is to count the number of rooms you’re
moving. For instance, a 20-foot truck can carry four to five average-sized
rooms full of stuff, while a truck that’s 26 feet can hold six to
eight rooms full. Another method is to use a truck’s square footage
to determine capacity.
Not all moving trucks are equipped to move items that require special care,
such as priceless artwork, hazardous chemicals, or bio-hazardous materials.
You should consider hiring professionals who are trained and certified
to move these items safely.
