Moving with a 20′ U-Haul Truck

Do you have a 2-3-bedroom move coming up? Perhaps you have an expanding family or you’re moving into a home with a couple of roommates. For this size move, you’ll want to rent a 20’ truck. Whether you have a local or a one-way move, there are several reasons why this is the perfect truck for your move. Here’s what you need to know about moving with a 20’ U-Haul truck!


The 20’ truck is great for moves of up to 3 bedrooms. It comes with a larger van-like cab to comfortably seat three people, which especially comes in handy for long-distance moves. With a door opening of 7’3.75” x 6’5” (WxH) and inside dimensions of 19’6” x 7’8” x 7’2” (LxWxH), you’ll have plenty of room for your small and large furniture, as well as boxes and fragile items.


U-Haul truck features are meant to make your move easier, and the 20’ is no exception! It comes equipped with a Mom’s Attic®, which is a unique compartment that rests above the cab of the truck. Load this up with your fragile items, and secure them using the truck’s tie-downs so they’re stored safely away from your heavier items. Like all U-Haul box trucks, this one has low decks for 50% easier loading. Lastly, you can take advantage of its wide, sturdy ramp for a fast and efficient loading experience on moving day. Simply use a dolly to roll your heavier furniture and appliances up into the truck!  Here are a few measurements for this size truck:

  • Deck height: 2’11”/length: 16’8”
  • Loading ramp width: 2’2”
  • Mom’s Attic®: 2’10” x 7’8” x 2’8.2” (L xWxH)
