How to maximize storage in a rented Ute

If you’re living in a city or suburb and don’t have access to a car, then renting a Ute is a great option for getting around. However, if you want to maximize storage space in your Ute then it’s important that you know some tips for packing smartly.

Plan your packing.

Plan your packing in advance.

Before you start throwing things into your ute, make sure you’ve planned out exactly what will go where and how much space each item will take up. The most important thing is to pack items according to how often they’re used–the more frequently an item is used, the closer it should be to the front of your vehicle so that you can easily access it when needed. Think about whether there are any heavy or bulky items that might be better placed at the back of your Ute–this will help keep balance while driving and prevent damage from being done on rough roads or during sudden stops.

What you can’t transport in the Ute

  • You can’t transport any hazardous materials
  • You can’t transport any dangerous goods
  • You can’t transport any animals, unless they’re small enough to fit in your lap and won’t bite or scratch you. And if they do bite or scratch, that’s fine too–just make sure to clean up the blood before returning the Ute!
  • And this goes without saying: no people allowed. The only exception is a qualified driver who has undergone extensive training on how not to crash into things while driving at high speeds over uneven terrain (you know, like most drivers). Also worth noting: If someone else wants to ride in your Ute with their own vehicle behind them (like a trailer), then it’s best for both vehicles’ safety if someone else drives both vehicles instead of just one person doing both jobs at once…unless he really knows what he’s doing…

How to pack your Ute for safety

While a Ute can be a great way to transport your belongings, it’s important that you do so safely. When packing your Ute, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Don’t pack anything that is prohibited by law or the rental company. This includes flammable liquids (e.g., petrol), explosives and weapons of any kind (including guns).
  • Make sure that everything is secured tightly so that nothing falls out while driving along rough roads or over bumps at high speeds–this can cause serious injury if something hits someone in the head!
  • Pack heavier items towards the front of the vehicle where they’ll be less likely to shift during turns or stops. If possible, place them on top of other things so they don’t move around as much during travel either; make sure nothing slides under seats either as this could cause damage under normal driving conditions much less when involved with an accident!

Researching the best way to pack a Ute is an important part of hiring one.

The first thing to consider when packing a Ute is safety. While it’s important to keep your belongings safe, you also want to be able to get out of the vehicle quickly if necessary. In order for this to happen, you need to make sure that all of your things are packed tightly and securely so as not to shift around during travel.

You should also think about how comfortable you’ll be in the back seat of the Ute with all your stuff in there with you–it may not seem like much at first glance but over time those extra pounds add up! Plus it’s easy for stuff like books or blankets underfoot when walking around inside an enclosed space like a car or van; they could cause damage if they’re loose underfoot while driving around town getting groceries after work hours (or whatever else).

When choosing what goes inside each box/bag/bin/etc., think about how often it needs access during travel–if something doesn’t come out very often then maybe consider leaving some extra room next time around instead? Also remember: less weight means less strain on both engine systems so try not pack too heavily unless absolutely necessary!


With the right planning and packing, you can transport almost anything in a Ute. The key is to make sure it’s well-secured so nothing falls out while you’re driving. You should also keep in mind that some things are not allowed on board Utes due to size or weight restrictions–these include furniture items like mattresses or box springs (which must be transported separately).
