How Do You Pack Furniture In A Moving Truck?

This way, your furniture will not get damaged from loading, unloading and moving. Once done, you have to plan on how to put your furniture in a truck. Make sure that you are able to balance your truck well with almost same weight heavy furniture on both sides of the truck, and that lighter furniture are placed on top. Mattresses are put on an upright position, and have to be balanced by almost similar weight on one side of the truck.

Our storage company removalists are specially trained to bring protective padding for furniture. Most upholstered furniture have their own padding and cushioning that might help to buffer some of the bumps that you experience on the road, but if you’re expecting items that are more angular to be shifted or if you’re leaving these items in storage for an extended period of time, best to pad these edges with some form of padding or bubble wrap!
Successfully packing furniture on a moving truck can help make the moving experience a more pleasant one. Proper packing will not only make unloading easier, but it will ensure the safety of your furniture as well as the person driving the moving truck. Follow the guidelines below to ensure you are packing your furniture properly. Pack the larger furniture first. The only items that should be placed on the moving truck before furniture is heavy appliances. Start with the heaviest furniture first and take it all the way to the back of the truck, close to the cab. Do not place any furniture in the truck upside down or on its side. Leave it in the proper position. Balance the heavier furniture on either side of the moving truck. If a heavy piece is on a side wall, make sure there is a comparable heavy piece on the opposite wall. This will keep the moving truck in balance and prevent it from tipping should there be any sharp turns during the trip. Keep mattresses in an upright position whe
