STEP #1

For all of your items to perfectly fit into the moving truck, you need to strategically load your belongings. Make sure when you start loading items, you maximize your space by placing them according to the size all the way against the wall of the truck.

Step #1 Start by placing wooden furniture as dressers and tv stands first.

STEP #2

There will be space leftover on the top of the big wooden furniture. The smart thing to do will be to place moving boxes on top to fill up space. Ideally lighter boxes.

Step #2 Organize the boxes by shapes and sizes and place them on top to maximize the space.

STEP #3

Middle of the truck can be filled with a mixture of smaller wooden furniture pieces and boxes. The top of that load can be filled with garden chairs, pillows, and soft items.

Step #3 Items such as cushions, chairs, toy boxes placed on top of the load.

STEP #4

At the end of the moving truck, load flat items and secure everything with straps inside the moving trucks. Loading a moving truck this way ensures there will be no damage while your belongings are in transport.

Step #4 Lastly, pack flat items like mattresses, headboards, and foot-boards.
