Consider these Essential Tips for Your Van Rental
Moving home is quite the adventure, and when coupled with the excitement of your new house, it becomes even more fun. However, in our experience, moving day always brings it’s own stresses and confusion. From the outset, booking the right sized van will immediately eliminate some of those headaches. Have a look at our versatile Midi Mover, ideal for the three-bedroom or large apartment move and watch our Special Offers page.
Whether you are moving just down the road or to an entirely new town or city, the importance of appropriate van rental cannot be stressed enough. While you need to consider your belongings, you must also think about your packing skills. That way, you can make sure everything fits into the van and your move goes as smoothly as possible. Never pick a van rental based solely on what your eyes are telling you, because you may end up turning a single-trip move into one that requires two or more trips!
To help you select the right van, National Truck Rental offers a few useful tips. We also recommend the Midi Mover which is the perfect size for those medium-sized moves. Watch this video to know more about the Midi Mover.

How Do You Pick the Right Size When You Rent a Van?
When you are moving home, it is likely that you will have one to three bedrooms of belongings; therefore, you are looking at a smaller-to-medium-sized van. There are some important factors to consider before you select a van:
- Cubic Metres Per Van – Every van is designed to hold a specific number of items measured in cubic metres. This measurement takes into account the open space inside the moving van from floor to roof. Unless you really are an expert packer, you will not be packing the van to full capacity; therefore, it may be best to opt for a slightly larger vehicle than what you think you need. The Midi Mover has an internal capacity of 32 cubic metres and is ideal for a three-bedroom house or large apartment move.
- Your Belongings – Some belongings are awkward to pack tightly or have shapes that take up too much space. Think about that antique mirror with a uniquely shaped stand or a bar cabinet with glass doors and shelves. Not only are these items difficult to pack due to their size and shape, but they can also be fragile and need extra care. Besides looking at the cubic metre measurement, you need to also apply common sense and evaluate the space your belongings will take up in the van.
- Your Packing Skills – If you are not going to pack your belongings in boxes or the bulk of your personal items are odd-shaped furniture pieces, then you will need a bigger van. For example, you are moving a one-bedroom apartment, but most of your items are bulky and cannot easily be squeezed into a small van. Therefore, you should upgrade to a van that can comfortably move a large apartment or multiple rooms.
