Moving can be a stressful experience, and it's important to know how long it will take to unload your Uhaul truck. Each move is different, but on average, two movers can unload a 10-foot truck in 1-2 hours, a 16-foot truck in 2.5 hours, and a 26-foot truck in 3.5 hours. However, the exact time it takes to unload your Uhaul truck depends on several factors, such as the size of the truck, the number of movers available to help, and access conditions like stairs and the distance from your home. To get an accurate estimate of how long it will take to unload your Uhaul truck, you can use our estimating tool.
This tool takes into account the size of your home and the size of the truck you've booked to give you an accurate estimate of how many hours it will take. For example, if you book a 26-foot truck, you know it will take longer to load compared to a 10-foot truck. In general, if you know that everything you have can fit in a 10-foot truck, you'll only need two hours. For every larger truck you expect to fill, it's good to add another hour.
Be sure to add extra time for things like stairs and the distance you have to travel. Even though you packed things a certain way, that bump, bump and wide turn may have changed your load. Because of this, loose items may have become stuck or entangled inside other items, so it's important to remember to be careful when unpacking. If something doesn't work out right away, stop and watch the situation.
Look from another angle to see if something is trapped or stuck in another object. Although this may take a few more seconds to unpack it, in the long run it will save you time fixing a possible broken item because you just ripped it off.
