    Singles,double deeps?? What is the gvw of the truck. Most moving trucks are 26k if thats the case it will be too much flatbed for the truck.

    On our 26 we can haul 192 2 story deep hives on 4 way pallets.

    So for all you non math wizards out there it is 2 rows of 8 pallets 3 high. So 16 on a level total of 48 Pallets with 4 hives on a pallet.

    And we have to be careful when it is fully loaded with heavy hives to not go over weight. Down to almonds is fine coming back is tricky some times.

    On or in? If it is a rental, enclosed moving truck you are going to have some extra headaches.

    Doubles, on 6 way pallets, . These are live hives, not going into an enclosed moving truck. I actually solved my own problem by just going with a shipping company so the thread is now irrelevant
    but still interesting . Thank you for the responses
