U-Haul trucks are designed to move families and make your move easier. These trucks feature low decks and wider, shorter ramps than their competitors, which makes loading and unloading easier. High visibility, quality maintenance, air bags, seat belts and 24-hour roadside assistance make U-Haul trucks a safe choice for moving rentals.
While renting a moving truck is great for getting all of your belongings at once, we know sometimes you have additional items that may not fit, or could be stored ahead of the bulk of your items. If this describes your situation, we suggest renting a storage space prior to your move. In renting a space early you can slowly move smaller items and boxes prior to the move to relieve stress and make for a smoother move.

Tips for Packing a Moving Truck
You've reserved your moving truck. Now what? Here are a few suggestions from Urban Storage @ Rainier Brewery about packing your moving truck.
Load Heavy Items First – Not only will you get the brunt of the work out of the way first, but resting large appliances and large furniture against the cab of the truck will provide extra support.
Next Load Long Pieces – Load sofas and other long pieces on end to take up the least amount of space. Load box springs and mattresses along the long sides of the truck, along with bed frames, tables, bookcases and floor lamps.
Fill in the Gaps – Heavy boxes come next, followed by lighter boxes stacked on top. Fill in the gaps with awkward shaped and smaller items. Carefully packed fragile items go in last.
