How many seats are in a moving truck?

As you prepare for your upcoming move, a few questions that may come to mind, “How many seats are in a moving truck?” “Does the moving truck have bucket seats or bench seats?” Having a family of two or six, these are a few important questions to ask in making sure everyone can move in one trip. So based on your family size and the number of rooms you will be moving, let’s look at the different moving truck sizes and find what fits best for you.

Here is a quick snapshot of the various U-Haul truck sizes and how many can sit in each truck:

Seat capacity
Find out which moving truck can hold up to 3 people by following the chart.

*Trucks showing seats for 2 are bucket seats. Trucks showing 3 are bench seats.

But what if you have more than 3 people in your family, young children, and children in car seats? Young children or those in car seats should not be seated in the front. For families with 3 or more, there is an alternative to using portable storage boxes to help with your move.

Once you’ve determined which truck or van best fits your needs, I recommend using U-Haul Truck Share for your reservation process. With this program, you can pick up and drop off the vehicle on your own time, meaning your equipment waits on you and only you.
