  • Convenient access points: Moving trucks feature easy access to cargo. From large rollaway doors to interior cab access to the back, these trucks can be customized for any need.

What customization can be offered for a moving/storage truck?

Moving and storage trucks can be customized in a variety of ways. The following are all common customization options for this truck style:

  • Specialized organization: In some cases, moving trucks are utilized to transport specialized or highly fragile goods. By building in custom shelving, these items can be carefully organized ensuring efficient transport.
  • Temperature control: From artwork to antiques, moving trucks can be customized to allow for careful temperature control of the cargo bay. 
  • Ramps and lifts: Moving items in and out of a truck can be cumbersome. However, the right ramps and lifts can make this job easier.

What benefits does a custom moving truck offer?

Customizing a moving truck is the ideal choice for many businesses. While all moving trucks share some features in common, a custom build allows a company to create the perfect fit for their needs. 

When customizing a moving truck, a designer will be able to assist you with picking the right layout, flooring, shelving, and added features. Additionally, a custom build means you can upfit the body you designed to the right chassis for your needs. For example, for companies that focus on hauling items across state lines, a different chassis will be chosen than for a storage company that simply rents its truck out on the weekends for local use. 

The ultimate benefit to a custom build is getting exactly what you want, making your truck the ideal investment for your business.

How can cargo be secured in a moving/storage truck?

Cargo is easy to secure in a moving truck due to the nature of the space. Most moving trucks feature protected space for cargo, keeping it out of the elements. Additionally, once items are placed into the cargo area, they can be secured with ropes, bungees, and other tie-downs. A custom truck can be designed with hooks and other tie-down points, allowing cargo to be firmly secured. 

Additionally, some moving trucks feature shelving and other storage space. The best way to keep cargo secure is to pack the truck with a plan in mind. Larger furniture can be placed in the back of the truck, with boxes stacked against these items. Moving blankets can also be utilized to protect cargo against scratching during transportation.

What are common sizes for moving/storage trucks?

Moving trucks come in a vast array of sizes. The right size will depend on the function of the truck. Many storage facilities that rent out moving trucks will opt for a small box truck. These trucks are usually around 10 to 14 feet in length and are ideal for short moves around town. 

In other cases, moving companies will employ much larger trucks for hauling goods across the country. For these companies, a body measuring in at 24 or 30 feet in length is ideal. 

Generally speaking, if the truck will be driven by customers, as is the case for companies that rent out their moving trucks, a smaller body will be ideal. For commercial use, the options are much broader in scope as some of these drivers will carry CDLs.
