What size trucks does U-Haul have?

According to their website, U-Haul® offers five truck sizes for local and long-distance moves: 10 ft., 15 ft., 17 ft., 20 ft. and 26 ft. They previously offered 24 ft. trucks, but that size is no longer listed. Take a closer look at these U-Haul truck sizes to see specific details about dimensions, maximum loading capacity and more.

Overview of U-Haul truck sizes

Before diving into the details, it’s important to note that the size is based on their entire length, which includes the Mom’s Attic (the storage space above the cab — found on all but the 10-foot truck). The floor loading area is called the deck, so you’ll want to use those measurements when determining if a piece of furniture will fit.

The U-Haul website also states that the measurements are approximate and may vary slightly based on the exact model you rent.
