Tips for Loading a Truck
- Load the truck in sections, making sure heaviest items like appliances go in first.
- Mattresses and tabletops can slide along the sides.
- Don’t forget blankets to protect furniture and cardboard to wrap around the vulnerable edges and feet of furniture.
- Sandwich mirrors and pictures between mattresses and box springs.
- Always be safe! Lift with your legs bent to keep from straining your back. Position yourself higher on the ramp than loaded dollies and handtrucks, not below them.
- Separate items requiring frequent access, so that they go into the storage unit last.
Tips for Using a Moving Company
- Plan for delays. Movers want to get to you on time. Unfortunately, they cannot always tell how long prior moves will take.
- Be sure to show the movers everything you plan on moving for the most accurate estimate.
- Ask what additional charges may be added on moving day.
- Make sure the moving company has insurance and is well-covered.
