Loading a truck is quite easy considering you pre-plan your load. Before you start carrying boxes to your truck, there are a few things you’ll need to have.
Supplies you will need:
- Moving blankets – this is considered padding protection
- Stretch wrap – secures the blanket
- Mattress Covers
- Packing tape – If you use the stretch a little amount of tape will be needed
- Moving Straps- Tie off each tier to keep load in place during transit.
- Small step ladder
- Work gloves
Designate one or two people to remain on the truck while others are carrying the items. Their job will be to stack and load everything tightly.
Begin by working into the front of the truck (where the cab is located). You will then work you way back.
Stack items from floor to ceiling, putting heaviest items (furniture) on the bottom and lighter items on the top.
Create 2-3 tiers as you load, tie off using straps/rope, etc.
All space should be filled to avoid shifting in transit.
