How Much Can You Fit in a ReloCube?

What fits in a ReloCube?

ReloCubes® are a great solution for long distance moving; they’re easy to load, fit into a single parking space, and they’re affordable. What’s not to love! One of the most common questions we get from customers considering a ReloCube for their move is “Will all my stuff really fit into those containers?” You may be surprised by how much they’ll hold! Check out the video below to see how common household items like sofas, dressers, mattresses and boxes can easily fit inside.

Measure to Make Sure: Know the ReloCube Dimensions

Externally, ReloCubes are 6’3” x 7’ x 8’5” (DWH), and interior dimensions are 72” x 82” x 93” (DWH). They can hold a maximum of 2,500 lbs., which is normally what the furniture and boxes from a studio apartment would weigh. You’ll find that most types of furniture fit inside without a problem. In fact, all sizes of mattresses will fit into a ReloCube. But before moving day gets here, we recommend taking measurements of your furniture and comparing them to the ReloCube dimensions, just to make sure there’s plenty of room. One piece of advice – if you’re moving large items, remember you can get creative when loading them. For example, a king-size mattress will fit upright along the back wall, and an 84” long sofa can be loaded upright – both take advantage of the Cube’s 93” height. 

Take a look at how furniture fits into the Cube in this video:

 

 

What if all my stuff won​’t fit into one ReloCube?

No worries—if you’re unsure, just reserve two (or more) Cubes and you’ll only pay for the ones you actually use.! It’s a benefit U-Pack customers love!

If you’re not sure how many Cubes to reserve, our space estimators are helpful planning tools. Just plug in the contents of your house (don’t forget areas like the attic or storage buildings!), and you’ll get an estimate of how much space you’ll need.

Remember, U-Pack offers flexibility for virtually any moving scenario. For example, if you think you’ll be able to fit all of your belongings into two Cubes, but you’re a little concerned you may need three, go ahead and reserve three just in case. It’s better to have the third one on standby and not need it, than need another and not have it (we can typically bring another Cube after you’ve started loading, but there may be extra delivery charges).

What if my furniture is too large for the ReloCube?

If you have pieces that just won’t fit into the dimensions of a ReloCube, check out the U-Pack moving trailer option. Trailers offer more loading space than Cubes – with interior dimensions of 27’ x 8’ x 9’, and you still only pay for the space you use. You get full use of the height and width, and then you just use the length (or linear feet) you need, down to a 5 ft. minimum. It’s the ideal option for extra-large or unusually shaped items.
