How Much Can You Fit in a ReloCube?

I’m moving — will a U-Pack ReloCube hold my stuff?

If you’re moving in a ReloCube, you might be wondering how much you can realistically expect to fit inside the container. While it’s easy to picture the CubeTM filled with boxes stacked in columns, adding furniture and other large items into the mix can make a difference.  With its compact design, some people might think their belongings would never fit in a ReloCube. But don’t let the size be deceiving — you may be surprised by how much it can hold!

U-Pack ReloCube

What are the ReloCube dimensions?

External ReloCube dimensions are 6’3” x 7’ x 8’4” (DWH), and internal dimensions are 70” x 82” x 93” (DWH). They can hold a maximum of 2,500 lbs., have approximately 305 cubic feet of loading space, and typically hold the furniture and belongings of a studio apartment.    

Will my large furniture fit in a ReloCube?

You’ll find that most types of furniture fit inside without a problem. But just to be sure, we recommend taking measurements of your furniture and comparing them to the ReloCube dimensions. If you’re moving large items, remember that 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.

Check out the video below to see how common household items like sofas, dressers, mattresses and boxes can easily fit inside.

If you have items that just won’t fit into the ReloCube, check out the U-Pack moving trailer option. Trailers offer more loading space than Cubes — interior dimensions are 27’ x 8’ x 9’ — and you only pay for the space you use.

How can I get everything inside?

To be sure you’re using every cubic foot of space, you’ll want to load your items “high and tight.” This means stacking items on top of each other and close together (sort of like a jigsaw puzzle). Not only will this help you maximize the space, but it will also help keep your belongings from shifting during transit. For more information, check out our loading tips.

Can I use more than one Cube?

Yes, you can! U-Pack offers flexibility for virtually any moving scenario, so you can order as many moving containers as you need. If you’re not sure how many ReloCubes to reserve, our space estimators can help. Just plug in the contents of your house (don’t forget your attic, basement or storage building), and you’ll get an estimate of how much space you’ll need.

Pro tip: If you think you might need an extra Cube, go ahead and reserve it just in case. It’s better to have 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 if it's available, but there may be extra delivery charges). If you don’t need it, you won’t pay for it!

What are customers saying?

At the end of every move, we send a survey out to ask customers about their experience. Here’s what some of them had to say about the size of the ReloCube.

Amazed at how much fit inside

“I was amazed at how much we got in the Cube. It is a puzzle you have to figure out, but it works. We did not include mattress and box springs, but a 1 bedroom apt. with large sofa, large chair, mini fridge, small dresser, computer chair, 10x12 rug, lamps, dryer and many many boxes fit great.” – J. Hollis

Bigger than I thought

“Overall, my experience was very good. I was able to fit a lot more into the ReloCube than I had anticipated. I really appreciated the flexibility of having them drop the ReloCube off at my house and then pick it up without me needing to be there.” – J. Oti

Everything fit in one Cube

“With organized packing, we were able to fit everything in the Cube. Nothing was damaged upon arrival which was refreshing.” – T. Schreiber

Better than driving yourself

“The Cubes were dropped off exactly on time, picked up quickly, fit exactly what they said they would fit, and arrived exactly when estimated. And to top it off, even the people delivering and collecting the Cubes were as nice as could be. DEFINITELY a better option than driving yourself.” – K. Renda
