How Much Space Do I Need?

When U Load, you save...but there’s a science behind it.

1. Your ULoad™ trailer is 9ft tall and 8ft. wide and 28 ft. long. You can use all of this space, less of this space, or more—we can add another 28ft. trailer to your shipment if you need it!

2. We calculate your moving cost based on the size of your move using the length measurement (linear foot) of your move once loaded inside your ULoad™ trailer.

3. When you reserve 4 linear feet, the amount of space you actually reserve is equal to 4ft. long x 8ft. wide x 9ft. tall.

Use the chart below to determine how many linear feet you may need.

* Estimates above are meant to provide you with an average range of how many linear feet you may need to move. We suggest calculating the exact measurements of your home and converting into linear feet to ensure accuracy when reserving your ULoad™ trailer. Please give us a call at (888) ULOAD-US if you have any questions or need help calculating.

Our budget-friendly rates are calculated by linear feet, but you’ll only pay for the space you use! Flexibility and tons of breathing room means you’ll never have to leave anything behind or make other moving arrangements.
