We also offer plenty of additional videos with step-by-step instructions to help make the packing – and unpacking – process simple and efficient. From the right way to pack your moving truck to how to pack clothes, how to pack books and how to pack pictures and mirrors, we have all the know-how you need to make sure everything you move is easy to access and in good shape when you begin to unload and unpack at your new place.
Moving Trucks & More
Whether you’re moving down the street or coast to coast, The Home Depot’s moving truck rental program has the right truck for you. You can reserve a 12 ft., 16 ft., 22 ft. or 26 ft. Penske truck and pick it up at your local store. And when it’s time to load – and unload – your moving truck, we have dollies, hand trucks and moving carts to help make the job easier. A pair of lifting straps is another smart option for safely moving heavy items with two people.
