What Size Box Truck Do You Need?

Size Matters: Determining Box Truck Length

Gas Cab Box Trucks for Sale and Lease San Jose

What size box truck do you need to meet your commercial business needs? From food delivery to contracting, the experts at Diamond Mitsubishi Fuso can help determine the ideal size commercial truck to meet your rental needs. 

Supersize or Minimize?

It might seem trivial, but determining your ideal box truck rental size can prevent a host of headaches, including extra trips in a truck that is too small and inventory damage to items sliding around in an oversized vehicle. Choosing the wrong sized truck could result in added fuel costs as well, both from extra trips or the cost of operating a larger vehicle.

Tips for Choosing the Right Size Box Truck

You will find trucks available for rental according to the length of the vehicle. The longer the vehicle, the more space.

  • Light-Duty Box Trucks (up to 16 ft)
    Opt for a light duty truck if you’re toting:
    • 1-3,000 lbs. of goods
    • 400-450 cu. ft. of inventory
    • 50 boxes or less
    • Less than 5 pieces of furniture
  • Medium-Duty Box Trucks (up to 22 ft)
    • 3,000-4,500 lbs. of goods
    • 650-850 cu. ft. of inventory
    • 100 boxes or less
    • Less than 10 pieces of furniture
  • Heavy-Duty Box Trucks (22-28ft+)
    • 4,500-6,500 lbs. of goods
    • 900-1,400 cu. ft. of inventory
    • 150 boxes or less
    • Less than 15 pieces of furniture

Cutting it Close?

As a rule, it is smart to opt for a slightly larger truck, as it’s better to have a little extra space than not enough, which can result in multiple trips and added expense. Larger vehicles also tend to have added convenience and accessibility features, such as liftgates and the option of side doors for easier loading and unloading of the goods you are hauling.

How to Select the Right Cargo Van to Buy or Lease

Are you in the market for a cargo van for your business? Before you run out and buy the latest cargo van for sale, you might want to give some thought to how you plan to use it. You may be able to save your company money by buying a used van or leasing one when you need it. Here are a few things to consider before you buy or lease a cargo van.

Assess Your Usage – How Frequently do you Need a Cargo Van?

How often do you transport cargo for your business? If the answer is less than twice a week, you may want to think about leasing a cargo van rather than investing in one that sits idle. On the other hand, if most of your business is on the go, you might need to buy a fleet of vans for your daily use. Buying new versus used is another factor that may best be determined by how often you plan to use it.
