Truck is 4.5 GVM and suitable for small to medium size homes and offices. There are a few considerations when it comes this vehicle :-
- 4.5 Ton truck is suitable for 1-2 bedroom or 3 bedroom houses. It can easily house large couches and Tall fridges. For bigger houses, this will still be most economical choice if you are moving within the same suburb or within 10 Kms.
- Two Men with 4.5 Ton Van is an excellent choice. Two can work in tandem, they can lift heavy furniture together and can work smoothly. Some people will argue in favour of 3 removalists, but in my experience the 3rd person if not of much help unless the house has stairs, because in a ground floor house, a third person is only lifting boxes and single items, which do not consume much time. It is the heavy lifting which takes time and unless there are stairs involved, 2 removalists are more than enough.
- If you are living in an apartment and the loading and Unloading is via undercover parking space, please measure the height of the entrance before choosing 4.5 Ton truck. Most of the time the height clearance is not enough for this vehicle to enter. In which case you have to have the truck part outside and walk all the way for loading.
