Tips for Packing a Moving Truck
You're moving. It doesn't matter if you're moving into a new home across town, across the state or into a storage unit at Yakima Secure Storage - it's important to make sure your moving truck is packed efficiently to maximize space and minimize the possibility for damage during transport. Here are a few tips for packing your moving truck:
Get the Supplies You Need – Be prepared. In order to minimize the potential for damage during transport get furniture pads, mattress bags, packing materials, sturdy boxes, ropes, straps, leather work gloves, and filler items like pillows and clothes in bags that can fill space as necessary.
Stack Heaviest to Lightest – When loading boxes and other items into the truck, be sure to stack heavier items on the bottom, middle weight items next and the lightest items on top.
Be Aware of Space – Disassemble furniture such as kitchen tables, entertainment centers and bed frames to maximize the amount of space you have to use. Bed rails or table legs can be rolled into larger rugs or carpets.
