Change is the only constant thing, and it often includes moving. Relocating often attracts outrageous costs, and it could be a strenuous task trying to move at a reduced rate. 

However, here is a guide to help you pack a budget hire truck to make your move as easy and cheap as possible. 

Making the most use of your space is imperative to help you avoid numerous trips to and fro your old and new location. Also, organizing a movement without professional movers requires extra caution to ensure proper arrangements and avoid damage to belongings.

Below are some helpful tips to help you pack and load a budget hiring a moving truck all by yourself!


The most important aspect of moving is locating the perfect budget hire truck which will convey your belongings. Therefore, at least a month before your moving date, search the internet for the most suitable rental company, and make bookings.

Usually, some of these rental companies have discount offers for online bookings. This means you don’t have to put a call across to book for a hire truck.

Notwithstanding the rental company you opt for, ensure that the truck is big enough to accommodate your belongings. Though it could be a lot cheaper to hire a smaller truck, it could, however, cost you a lot more time and money later on.

A smaller truck will cause you to make multiple trips to and fro, which means additional time, effort, and money. To help you choose the most appropriate bus for your movement, it is vital to go through the truck rental company’s size guidelines or speak to their representatives for details.


While planning to move using a truck hire, it is necessary to get all the right packing supplies for moving. Supplies such as sturdy boxes, packing tape, furniture pads, wrappings, moving blankets, etc., are required for safe movement and avoid damage to belongings in transit.

Although some of the truck hire companies to offer some packing supplies and items, the extra services may be at additional costs. Considering that your belongings may shift while moving, all your items have to be protected. You can do this by padding up gaps and spaces with moving blankets or by using mattress bags for your mattress as well as straps for holding your belongings in place.

Heavy furniture can consume a large space in a budget hire truck. So, to make the most use of your space, it is imperative to dismantle as many furniture items as possible to create more room. Though this might seem like a lot of work, it will definitely help you maximize space. This will as well help spread the weight of your heavy furniture across the truck more evenly.

To begin, it is advisable to disassemble tables, bed frames, desks, dressers, headboards, etc., and store them in upright positions. If you cannot disassemble large furniture, we suggest keeping your items and boxes inside drawers or on the furniture not to crush the smaller items.
