Home Depot Cargo Van Dimensions and Guidelines

Home Depot cargo van dimensions

If you’re planning on relocating to another part of the city, you should probably get all your stuff & affairs in order. That includes saying goodbye and good riddance to your neighbors and renting a cargo van. One place you can rent a cargo van is at Home Depot.

The interior dimensions of a Home Depot cargo van are 54.8 × 70.2 × 28.7 inches (139 × 178 × 73 centimeters). It has a total interior cargo volume of 277.7 cubic feet (7.86 cubic meters).

For the remainder of this article, I will go into greater detail regarding the dimensions of Home Depot’s cargo vans, as well as other truck rental options available for rent at the home improvement store.

Home Depot Truck Rentals

Checking out the Home Depot Truck Rental page, you’ll see 4 truck options available: a cargo van, 2 kinds of flatbed trucks, and a box truck. All 4 of these rental trucks have different cargo specs, so you should pay close attention to how they differ from each other.

Regardless of which rental truck you go with, please note that all 4 of them are for local use only. That means when you’re done borrowing the vehicle, you must return it to the exact store you rented it from.

Below, I’ll describe the truck rental options based on the Home Depot website.

Cargo Vans

Cargo Vans

The Cargo Van is one of the more popular rental truck options at Home Depot. It has closed cargo space to keep your belongings safe and sound without drastically limiting the total amount of cargo it can carry per trip. Just be mindful that the closed back means you may have to lie tall items—i.e., refrigerators, bookshelves—flat in the cargo space.

Gross Cargo Weight 3,000 lbs. (1,361 kg)

F250 Flatbed Truck

The F250 Flatbed Truck is ideal for carrying tall cargo and towing caravans or trailers. It can seat 3 people and has enough bed space to accommodate most, if not all, of the items in your small studio apartments or dorm room.

T250 Flatbed Truck

The T250 Flatbed Truck is the second and final option in Home Depot’s fleet of rental pickups. Like the F250, this flatbed truck is ideal for moving tall items due to the open bed. While it is lighter and has a lighter maximum cargo load, the bed is more spacious to accommodate more smaller items per trip.

Box Truck

Last but not least is the Box Truck. It’s the largest option of Home Depot’s fleet of rental trucks in terms of cargo space and maximum weight capacity. The Home Depot Box Truck is best for those living in standalone single-bedroom apartments or small- to mid-sized homes (multiple trips).

Penske Rentals via Home Depot

If you want to move out of town or even to a completely different state, you can rent a Penske rental truck via Home Depot.

The Penske trucks available through Home Depot are similar to Home Depot’s box trucks. However, there are 4 truck options available: 12, 16, 22, and 26 feet (3.7, 4.9, 6.7, and 7.9 meters, respectively).

FAQ About Home Depot Rental Trucks

1. Are Home Depot rental trucks cheaper than other companies?

I can’t give you a definitive answer to this question since the cost of renting a Home Depot truck may vary from place to place. In addition, competitors in your area may differ from those in mine. However, I will tell you this: there are ways to get good deals on rental trucks if you know where to look.

2. Do I need to stop my Home Depot rental truck at a weigh station?

The short answer to this question is no, you don’t. You can read a more descriptive answer from the helpful folks at Moving. When in doubt, you should stop at a weigh station. The attendants there might laugh at you for wanting to weigh your non-commercial vehicle, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
