Handy Rentals has many sizes of truck for you to choose from, almost one for any type of job! They vary all the way from small to extra large, this blog should help you understand the difference between them.
Our small truck is a good size truck for a one bedroom house/flat move, it will fit a queen bed in, boxes, couches, tvs and any other household furniture from an average sized 1 bedroom place. The truck has average dimensions of 3m long, 1.8m high and 1.8m wide, making them on average around 10 cubic meters. This size truck does have the option to come with a hydraulic tail lifter, this simply helps you lift the heavy things in and out of the truck!
The medium truck is a great size vehicle for a two bedroom home, this will fit multiple beds, boxes, various bits of furniture including tv’s whiteware etc.. from an average 2 bedroom home. This truck has average dimensions of 4.5m long, 2m high and 1.7m wide, making them on average around 15 cubic meters. This truck also has the option of coming fitted with a hydraulic tail lifter, this is to help you lift the heavier items in and out of your truck.
Our Large truck is a great sized vehicle for those slightly bigger moves, we suggest this truck fits in an average 3 bedroom home, this includes all the beds, boxes, other furniture, tv’s and whiteware + more. These trucks are great and can still be driven on a standard car license. If you have a larger house this is certainly the truck for you, both due to its immense 18 cubic meter cargo space and its ease of operation. The large trucks also have the ability to come fitted with a tail lifter which helps you lift the heavier items in and out of the truck.
Extra Large Truck
For all your extra large moves, we have the extra large truck. This truck fits a large 3 to 4 bedroom home in, while still being driveable on a car license. This will fit all the beds, boxes and other furniture you have. This truck is also often used for 3 bedroom homes with a garage, as that extra space really helps fit the extra items in. These trucks are on average 5.1m long 2m wide and 2.1m tall, making an average size of 23 cubic meters. This truck also has the option of a tail lifter for lifting the heavy items in and out of the truck.
Do I need a tail lifter?
In most cases you will find a tail lifter extremely useful, so whenever you are using one of our trucks to move house we always recommend one with a tail lifter. This will save you a lot of effort and lifting power, as walking back and forth to a truck all day can be very tiring!
