Tonnage of a truck is not that important. What’s primordial is the volume of the truck.
Below some examples of normal trucks and their usage
3 Example of Moving Trucks Load Capacity with usage
- 3 Tons / 18 to 22 Cubic Meters: mostly used for small removals, single items, or small/average relocation with short travelling distance. It has to be used too in case of bad access or CBD delivery. Please note that in case of heavy items, the tailgate could be not sufficient.
- 5 Tons / 32 to 40 Cubic Meters: mostly used for 2 to 3 bedrooms houses. This is the most used truck in the removals industry. Indeed it can take a lot of furniture without doing two trips, easy to park as not too long or not too high. If set up with a good tailgate, it can take heavy or specific items too
- 9-10 Tons / 40 to 50 Cubic Meters: used mainly for 4 bedrooms houses or big interstate move. Or any big removals with a shed, pots plants and a lot of items. This truck is really big and can’t park everywhere. Mainly used for houses or businesses.
