After the packing and organizing process, the next big step is how you are going to move everything. If you have a big vehicle, truck, or know someone with either, then you’re lucky! For those who will need to worry about moving truck rentals, we want to show you how to pack a moving truck correctly. This is just another way we can lend a hand and make it a worry-free move. 


What Is the Best Way to Pack a Moving Truck?

Our residential movers have come up with a step-by-step of how to pack a moving truck. First things first, you have to think about what size truck you may need. You may need a smaller cargo van or a larger truck. There are so many options to choose from. Next is to make sure you have your packing supplies ready. Our Jacksonville movers and packers can help with this step!


Step-by-step how to pack a moving truck:

  1. Disassemble furniture, as breaking it down will free up more room in the tuck
  2. Load the largest and heaviest items first 
  3. Put items like headboards and couches in an upright position
  4. Roll up rugs
  5. The lightest items get loaded last 
  6. Try to distribute the weight in the truck evenly
  7. Use moving straps to hold items in place


Whether you recruit us or some friends to help, it is important to be careful loading the truck. Properly loading a truck means you won’t have to worry about playing a scary game of Tetris with your furniture and moving boxes.
