If you're moving during high-traffic times such as weekends, the end of a month, the summer, or the end of a school year, moving truck reservations may be more difficult to secure. Plan ahead so you can get the right size moving truck in Puyallup for your specific requirements.

Tips for Packing a Moving Truck
There's packing a moving truck and there's packing a moving truck efficiently. Either way all of your belongings will get from Point A to Point B, but why run the risk of having to make extra trips when you could use all of the available space the first time. Here are a few pointers for packing your moving truck the best way possible.
Stage Heaviest Items First - Appliances, large furniture and other heavy items should be staged and loaded into the truck first and secured to the cab. Centrally balance the weight of all items in the truck.
Pack Boxes in Layers - Not only should boxes be packed with the heaviest items on the bottom and the lightest on top, your boxes themselves should be packed in the moving truck in the same way when stacking. This will avoid the boxes breaking down and shifting during transit.
Don't Lose Personal Items in the Chaos - Pack personal luggage, cell phone chargers, toys for the kids, energizing foods/beverages and other items you see fit with you in the cab of the truck, so they aren't buried deep within the truck when you need them.
