It is important to place items correctly inside the truck. Loading your items properly will reduce the chances of items shifting when the truck is moving, resulting in a lower probability of damaged or broken items. Not only does it make the loading and unloading a lot easier, it will also maximize usable space.
- Have everything ready before the day of your move
Make sure everything is ready the day before, so you can start loading up once your truck is here.
- Box of essentials and valuable items.
Always carry your valuable items with you in the front of the truck. Either carry your box of essentials with you, or place them at the back of the truck where you can get them easily.
- Distribute the weight on the truck evenly
Always load the larger, heavier items first. Place refrigerators, washing machines, dryers and other heavy appliances against the front wall of the truck.
- Maximizing space and loading up
Protect your sofas and mattresses with stretch flim. Stand your
mattresses and sofas upright against the side wall of the truck and tie it securely. Stack light furnishings (fold-able chairs) or lighter boxes on top of bigger, heavier ones. Stack similar sized boxes together.
