U-Haul's Largest Rental Truck
Are you moving across the country and need a truck that holds a lot of stuff? Let’s take a look at some options for large moving trucks.

When you think of DIY moving and large rental trucks, what comes to mind first? Is it U-Haul? You’ve no doubt seen U-Haul trucks around town in a variety of sizes – from the 10-foot truck up to the largest U-Haul you can rent, the 26-foot truck. Because you’re moving a lot of stuff, today, let’s talk specifically about the 26-foot truck. Its dimensions are 26’5” x 7’8” x 8’3” (lwh) and it can hold up to 1,611 cubic feet. According to U-Haul, it can hold the contents of a four-bedroom home. What do you think? Will your stuff fit?

If it’s questionable, I recommend using U-Pack’s Room-by-Room Space Estimator Tool. Yes, it’s calculating the linear footage of your shipment, but it’s easy to convert to rental truck size by using the Truck Rental Conversion chart.

So, do you think U-Haul’s largest truck is big enough?

If it’s not, check out U-Pack.

U-Pack offers trailers that are even bigger than the largest U-Haul you can rent. In fact, U-Pack’s moving trailer has about 30% more loading space than U-Haul’s 26-foot truck. The trailer’s internal dimensions are 27’ x 8’ x 9’ (lwh) – which is equivalent to the 26-foot U-Haul PLUS a 10-foot U-Haul. In other words, there’s a lot more room to pack your stuff into.

But, what if a 28-foot trailer is too much?
No worries! With U-Pack, you pay only for the space you use! Your moving quote is based on the linear footage you use within the trailer. If you use less space than you reserve, you pay less! If you need more space, you can use as much as you need, and we’ll adjust the price based on the per-foot adjustment price on your quote. There’s no paying for wasted space with U-Pack, and more space is always available if you need it!

The best part of using U-Pack instead of the largest U-Haul truck?
You don’t have to drive! We deliver the trailer right to your door, you pack and load it, then we’ll drive it to your new home. You get to travel across the country in the safety and comfort of your own vehicle. How does that sound for convenience?

Does U-Pack’s price really compare to U-Haul?
In many cases it does! In fact, in a post-move survey, 78% of our customers said they chose us because of price! It all comes down to where you’re moving from and to, and how much you’re moving. Getting a free quote online is super easy. Just enter the basic information about your move, and you’ll see the price instantly.  

Avoid running out of room! Go U-Pack!
