Tips for Packing a Moving Truck
Trying to pack and move can be very stressful but you do not have to worry about maximizing your storage space in the moving truck.
Know what size of truck you need for your move
Research and find a truck company that is right for you. Be sure to reserve your truck at least a few weeks before your move. This will ensure you have a truck on the day you need it. Take an inventory of everything that is being packed, this will help you know what size of truck you need. Reserving a smaller truck may seem like a way to save money, but in reality it is not. It will take more trips back and forth to your Storage Redwood City CA and in the long run it’ll end up costing more money. Read your moving company’s sizing guide and if you need more help call them to make sure you get the truck size you need.
Ask your friends and family for help
It might seem easier to move everything be yourself so you do not have to inconvenience anyone else. But this can lead to personal injury if you attempt to move something heavy. Doing things yourself can also make a 2 hour move become a 6 hour move. Not only are you having to spend more time but you also have to spend more money by paying for a truck for a longer period of time. Ask your friends and family for help and have a good time.
Gather all of the necessary packing supplies
Before you start make sure you have everything you need to pack and transport your belongings. This will probably include boxes, packing tape, labels, a dolly, furniture pads, and plastic wrap.
Load everything in order from heaviest and biggest to lightest and smallest
When you are finally ready to start loading your truck, start loading with your biggest and heaviest items. These items include bed frames, mattresses, couches, tables, chairs, and appliances. Place these at the bottom of your truck so they will not crush anything fragile. Then you can place your smaller items on top. Try to balance your items to not overweigh one the side of your truck.
