When planning a move between apartments without professional assistance, it can be difficult to determine exactly what the requirements are for renting a moving truck. This new guide available from Movers.com breaks down the process step-by-step and explains how to determine the required size, duration, and extras needed to complete the move.

To determine the size of the moving truck required, the recently published provides a simple chart that provides the estimated truck volume required for a range of apartment sizes. While Movers.com suggests that a small one-bedroom apartment can be moved in a 10′ truck, a 4-bedroom apartment may require a truck up to 26′ long.
Without knowing the amount of furniture and possessions in each apartment, the guide can only provide an approximation of the required truck size. Movers.com’s experts suggest renting a vehicle up to 15% larger than required, to ensure that everything can fit in a single trip, without having to compress the load.
The report includes a list of suggested questions to ask a rental service provider when making inquiries and breaks down the five factors most likely to affect the overall rate. Families may expect additional charges based on the size of the truck, the distance it travels, the length of time it is needed for, and occasionally, the time of year in which it is rented.
Before choosing a rental service, the guide suggests discussing insurance options with the company, as well as any extra fees. Some rental agencies may provide additional insurance that includes coverage for their cargo, and homeowners are encouraged to thoroughly read through their options, and choose the one that best suits their needs.
The guide explains that families will also require several accessories or tools for DIY moves, which can often be rented at the same time as the moving truck. While this may vary from one rental agency to another, they should request more information about moving blankets, hand carts, and moving straps, which may be useful for transporting large or heavy furniture.
