By On

Ah, moving season. Just hearing those words, you can practically feel the bubble wrap popping in your hands, hear the sound of packing tape being ripped off a box, and feel the rage of renting the dreaded moving truck. Yes, renting a moving truck is the worst, but maybe with gifs, it can become just a tiny bit better. Here are all those crazy moving truck moments, featuring your favorite gifs:

1. When you realize that you have too much stuff to just move in your car, and that you’re going to need to rent a moving truck.

2. Going to reserve the truck online, and seeing that the website is impossible to navigate, takes a full minute to load, and hasn’t been redesigned since 2003.
