The transportation process of moving varies. It depends on the items being moved, the distance of the move, and the choice of vehicle. If you are looking to make a small move, a cargo van hire is a perfect option for this. Cargo van hire is less expensive than getting a moving truck and it also gets the job done.

A small move could be a family member moving out, a student moving to a new dorm, or someone moving into a single or studio apartment. Cargo van hire is safe and easy for moving small items. Even a cargo van for hire may look small, that’s not usually the case.

If you are leaning towards making a do-it-yourself kind of small move, cargo van hire in Auckland is a cheap and easy option to consider. It allows for flexibility as well as control of what direction and timing the move will go.

Here are few reasons why using a cargo van hire in Auckland is what you need for a small move:


Since it is a small move, and not as intense when a family with kids and a large amount of luggage are moving out, a cargo van hire is a right size for fitting your things. Because it is a small move, the furniture can easily be carried in one move and then the boxes can go on the next trip. This cuts costs on mileage or fuel and allows you to finish your move in a short period.

Cargo vans are enclosed

Moving on a rainy day in Auckland can be a disadvantage if you decide to use a pick-up truck or a vehicle that is not enclosed. A cargo van hire protects your items and belongings from being exposed to the rain or too much sun.

Because cargo vans are enclosed, you don’t have to worry about damaged items during the trip and you can guarantee the safeness and dryness of all your belonging throughout the trip.

Taking multiple trips are easier

Sometimes, one trip is not enough to get the job done. A cargo van hire makes multiple trips easier than a moving truck will. Cargo vans are small and convenient to make the multiple trips effortless.

Cargo vans are easy to operate and can make your move stress-free. They allow you to easily pack and offload your belongings on your own without the help of hiring services or family and friends.

They are easy to operate and maneuver

A cargo van hire is a lot easier to operate and maneuver than a moving truck especially if you haven’t driven a truck before. Cargo vans are excellent sizes for driving on Auckland roads as well as entering in and out of properties, front gates, and driveways.

Whether you are a college student moving to a new dorm room, or a person moving into a single room or studio apartment, cargo vans are perfect for the move. They are convenient and a safe way to get a small move done.
