Why Does it Matter How I Pack The Moving Truck?
There are several reasons why packing the moving correctly will become important:
What Are The First Two Things That I Need to Know About Packing a Moving Truck?
The first two things you need to know about packing and loading a moving truck correctly are pretty basic:
What Do I Need to Pack a Moving Truck Correctly?
You do not need a lot of supplies to load the truck correctly. Having rope, heavy twine, furniture pads (you can usually rent them from the same place you rented the truck), mattress pads, a hand truck, a tape measure, and your plan should cover you.
What Are The First Things You Should Load On The Moving Truck?
Your largest and heaviest items should be secured against the cab wall (that's the wall the separates the driver from the rest of the truck) should be placed in the truck first, secured by rope. Use furniture pads between any two items that might be touching. Secure any lighter items by using heavier items on their opposite sides.
Long items go on next, mostly up on their longest sides or edges. Loading large-sized mattresses (always use mattress pads to prevent ripping and tearing) go up against the side walls next, secured by rope. Other long items to secure include sofas, table tops, long pictures and mirrors.
The rest of the furniture should now go on the truck, arranged neatly and regularly, and up against the sides of the truck where possible. Again, moving pads are your friends here.
Heavy boxes are next on the list, arranged to form rows on the floor of the truck. Be careful to leave room to walk, and do not stack the heavy boxes high enough to damage the ones on the bottoms. Also, never stack heavy boxes on top lighter ones.
Follow those with your lighter boxes, and finally awkward items that did not fall into the other categories, secured with heavy twine and moving blankets.
Following this order should make your move more orderly and keep damage and stress to a minimum.
Good luck with your move!
