Tips for Packing a Moving Truck
You've rented a moving truck, secured your storage unit and moving day is almost upon you. Now what? Eliminate unnecessary additional trips in your moving truck by packing your truck efficiently the first time. Here are a few of our tips to help ease your stress on moving day:
Keep the Ramp Clear – A wet ramp is more than just a nuisance, it’s dangerous. Before loading anything into the truck be sure that the ramp is dry and clear of debris.
Load Heaviest Items First – Washers, dryers, refrigerators and heavy furniture should be loaded first and secured to the cab. Distribute weight evenly throughout the truck from side to side and front to back.
Pack in Layers – Load heaviest boxes first, followed by medium weight and then the lightest boxes on top of each other to help prevent damage to your belongings.
