Choose the Right Moving Vehicle


Moving can be an extremely stressful thing, trust me, I’ve seen countless arguments on moving day because people underestimate how stressful it is to move their belongings from one house to another.

One of the most important aspects of moving items from one place to the next is the transport. The transport will largely depend on how much stuff you have. If you just a few boxes, the chances are you won’t need a van however if you do, you know who to call!

Dragon removals know that moving can be fairly expensive and that’s why we want to give you the information to ensure that you make the right choice when deciding what moving vehicle to choose, there is nothing worse than being caught short when you realise you have too much stuff for the little van that you have hired.Dragon Self Storage

Our Views

Students: You probably don’t have all that much in terms of belongings so generally you won’t need that much space, probably a small transit van will be able to hold yours and one others belongings. You will be able to fit to 200 cubic feet inside one of these vans. Top tip: Remember to not overload the boxes! You don’t want to have to go out and buy a new crockery set because you’ve crammed everything into one box!

One Bedroom flat or house: You will probably have anywhere between 300-500 cubic feet worth of things to move. You will probably be able to get away with a large transit van or possibly for those who have just a little more than the average flat, a Luton van. Top tip: Always err on the side of caution, don’t try to save money on a smaller moving vehicle! You may regret it when you cannot fit everything in!

Two bedroom flat or house: You are probably looking at anywhere between 600-900 cubic feet worth of belongings. A Luton van should be perfect for your move, as long as you treat your move like a game of Tetris! For those either have a little more a small truck may be what you are looking for! Top tip: Don’t underestimate the power of bubble wrap! If you are worried about an item, wrap it up!

Three bedroom flat or house: 800-1600 cubic feet. You will be looking to hire a moving truck which may require assistance.
