What Size Truck Do I Need to Move a King Size Bed?

Moving and transporting furniture can be a time-consuming and difficult task. A king size bed is one of the largest pieces of furniture to move, and it requires special consideration when determining what size truck is needed for the job.

When determining which size truck you need to move a king size bed, you need to take into account the dimensions of your mattress, frame and box springs. A king size mattress is typically 76 inches wide by 80 inches long, and up to 12 inches thick.

The box springs can add an additional 8-10 inches in height. You will also need to factor in any additional items that you plan on moving with your bed, such as dressers or nightstands.

Most rental truck companies offer several sizes of trucks for moving purposes. For a king size bed, it is recommended that you rent a 10 foot or 12 foot truck.

These larger trucks will provide you with enough room to comfortably fit your mattress, box springs, and any other items you plan on taking with you.

It is important to note that some rental truck companies may require an additional fee for extra mileage if the distance is too far for their specified rental period. Be sure to check with the rental company about any extra fees or restrictions before signing the agreement.

If you are still unsure about what size truck will be needed for your move, it may be helpful to speak with a professional moving company who can provide advice and assistance in selecting the right sized vehicle for your needs.

In conclusion, when moving a king size bed it’s best to rent a 10 foot or 12 foot truck from a rental company in order to comfortably fit all items being transported. If more information is needed it’s best to consult a professional moving company who can provide advice on what size truck would best suit one’s needs.
