Moving is undoubtedly stressful. There are dozens of tasks to complete, and all within a narrow timeframe. One important aspect this is frequently overlooked by people moving is making sure you book a removalist with the correct sized vehicle. The last thing you want on moving day is three or four trips back and forth in a truck that is far too small for your move. The question is, how do you select the right type of vehicle for your move? Read on for a decent guide based on your house size.
Choose the Right Truck
What you need is a truck that’s just right. To find the ideal truck size, you first need to take stock of everything you’re moving and calculate how much space it will fill (we’ll help you there). Next, you’ll need to shop around for a truck with the ideal storage capacity. Skilled removalists like us at We Move Sydney will help in this aspect.
If truck availability means you have to size up to a larger truck, make sure you have moving blankets to wedge between items to prevent shifting. If you go down a size, consider adding a trailer to your rental.
Ten- and Twelve-Tonne Truck
The largest available trucks you’ll see for house moves in Sydney are ten- and twelve-tone trucks. They can range anywhere from 50 cbm to 65 cbm. Very few properties will need two trips with these trucks, and if you do, you either have to much stuff or a huge house!
These trucks are suitable for four- to six-bedroom houses with four to six occupants.
The best way to get the perfect truck is to use an online moving calculator to tell you how much cubic space (a.k.a. volume) you’ll need based on how many beds, boxes, or even unicycles you’re moving. It’s that easy.
If you are still unsure about the size of truck you need for your 5 bedroom move, contact skilled professionals like us for advice. Our team is here to help you with all the information you need regarding truck sizes, the cubic feet in each and what they can accommodate.
