Tip for Packing a Moving Truck
Just like any large project, success stems from preparation. When planning your next move, prepare to pack your moving truck as efficiently as possibly. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Get the Supplies You Need – As simple as it would be to just load everything into your moving truck in one swoop, it's important to be prepared with furniture pads, tarps, a dolly, ropes, straps, leather work gloves and filler items.
Designate Jobs – Ask for help moving from your friends and family. Packing a moving truck isn't a one-person job. Designate some people to stay in the truck to stack and load everything tightly, while others transport items from the house.
Heaviest First – Load the largest, heaviest items such as appliances and furniture, first. Place these items against the cab of the truck and distribute the weight evenly.
