  • 12-foot truck: 8-14 miles per gallon
  • 16-foot truck: 6-10 miles per gallon

10 Foot Truck: How Much Does it Hold?

Will a 10-foot truck be enough space for my move?

The smallest rental truck available is the 10-foot truck. It’s intended for small moves — a studio apartment or just a couple of rooms — so, if you’re moving a one-bedroom apartment or a heavily furnished place, it may not have enough space. Before renting a truck, take a close look at the dimensions to make sure everything will fit.

24 Ft Truck - Just How Much Does it Hold?

Will my belongings fit into a 24’ truck?

Between large pieces of furniture and things packed in boxes, it can be hard to picture how much space you’ll need in a rental truck. The companies recommend trucks based on home size, but if you have a 3-bedroom home you may not be sure what to do. The biggest trucks (usually 26-foot) typically say they’re best for 3-4 bedroom homes, while the next size down (20-foot in many cases) is for 2-3 bedrooms. Somewhere in the middle is a 24 ft. rental truck, but they can be hard to find. Take a look at where to locate these vehicles and what to do if you can’t find one nearby.
