Deciding on the size of your rental to move should not be a stressful decision. You have plenty of other items on your to-do list that will take up your time and spur stress. At Elite Truck Rental, our team will work with you one-on-one to discuss what van or truck will help you move as easy as possible. If you have a huge home, then it is a no-brainer for our largest moving truck at 24 feet. But if you are in a smaller home, apartment or condo, then it may be more confusing. Sometimes the best choice for a moving truck is not a truck at all, but a van.
Familiarity behind the wheel: Most of us do not know how to drive huge trucks. A cargo van is similar to your own vehicle as far as how to turn and park. A van is easier to maneuver around streets and when changing lanes on the highway. During your stops for food or gas, you will be happy with the ease of a cargo van to park and not have to find a large or out-of-the-way parking spot. There is still plenty of space in the back of a cargo van for your belongings. Our Econoline vans can fit the amount of belongings typically found in an apartment with 1 or 2 rooms. There is 250 cubic feet in the back and its load capacity is 1,000 pounds.
Savings back to you: If you do not have to pay for a huge truck, then you shouldn’t! A cargo van rental will not cost as much as a 15-foot truck for 3 to 4 rooms of belongings. If you can get by with a cargo van and maybe also have a family member or friend help you with transporting a handful of your belongings, you can definitely save some money. Gas costs for a cargo van will also be cheaper than a huge moving truck that you do not even need.
Safe space inside: If you were considering borrowing or renting a pickup truck for your move, that could be a risky move. During the fall and winter months, weather is certainly unpredictable. You do not want to have to worry about your belongings getting wet or damaged in the back of a pickup truck if they are tucked away safe and sound in a cargo van.
If you are unsure of your rental size, discuss it with our Elite crew members. We will work with you on what is best and also on the timeline that you need your rental for to get your move completed. We are available anytime through our online contact form.
