Tips for Packing a Moving Truck
You've picked up your moving truck. Now what? Here are a few suggestions from Lake City Mini Storage about packing your moving truck.
Load Heavy Items First - Not only will you get the brunt of the work out of the way first, but resting large appliances and large furniture against the cab of the truck will provide extra support.
Next Load Long Pieces - Load sofas and other long pieces on end to take up the least amount of space. Load box springs and mattresses along the long sides of the truck, along with bed frames, tables, bookcases and floor lamps.
Fill in the Gaps - Heavy boxes come next, followed by lighter boxes stacked on top. Fill in the gaps with awkward shaped and smaller items. Carefully packed, fragile items go in last.
