Do I Need a Moving Van or a Moving Truck?
Moving vans, also called cargo vans, are designed and constructed to withstand wear and tear, while keeping their cargo safe and undamaged. While moving vans do offer flexibility as far as inside configuration goes, moving trucks allow for maximum load capacity and configurations. Things like reinforced oak hardwood floors with smooth joints, E track load bars, side and/or rear load doors, and even mover’s ramps are industry standards for a good moving truck.
Another key differentiating feature between moving trucks/vans and freighter trucks is the attic, or “peak,” that provides additional storage space and shows the public that proper “moving truck” look.
Generally speaking, used moving trucks hold more cargo than vans, especially if they have an attic or peak. They are perfect for large family moves, delivery of equipment, and the transport of furniture. Even our smaller sized used moving trucks can carry the equivalent of a two-bedroom apartment. Moving trucks also have the capacity to tow trailers behind them, so if you need to move cargo and a vehicle, you can do it all in one trip with a solid moving truck.
Moving vans are better for smaller and more specialized transportation and deliveries, and don’t have as many different interior configuration capabilities as their larger truck components. On the other hand, used moving vans and cargo vans do not use as much fuel as trucks. To see our full inventory of used cargo and moving vans for sale today, visit our cargo van page.
Different Types of Moving Trucks and Example Uses
There are several different types of moving truck bodies to choose from. The type of body you choose will depend on the truck’s intended use. Here are several different types of moving truck bodies for you to consider:
- Refrigerated trucks – also called reefer trucks, these trucks are for cargo that must be kept cold. If you’re looking for a moving truck with refrigeration capabilities, be aware that you’ll end up paying more up front and in total operating costs.
- Flatbed moving trucks are great for carrying larger items and can come with dump beds, fixed beds, and plenty of space for loading and unloading with the help of a crane or similar machinery.
- Utility trucks – these are great for mobile maintenance and independent tradesmen. Most utility moving trucks come lined with bins, racks, and other places to store equipment and hang tools.
