Good loading strategy

Organize furniture in your moving truckLoading everything into a moving truck or the removals van isn’t limited to just lifting it all and placing inside the moving vehicle. For your furniture to be free from any harm, it needs to be arranged just right and in accordance with the other things inside the vehicle. When you are moving furniture along with other boxes and heavy items it is important to make sure nothing falls on the furniture, especially if you are moving antiques.  You can use the small spaces under hollow furniture such as underneath tables or under stools to store smaller moving boxes. Avoid storing anything on top of furniture, unless it is very sturdy and you are absolutely certain that it can take the weight. Don’t arrange high, towering piles of boxes close to any of the furniture: during the move these can topple over and fall on the furniture and thereby damage it.

Fasten furniture with ties

Once everything has been arranged inside the moving vehicle and you are satisfied with how you have optimised the space, the next step should be to make sure everything stays in its place during the move. Even if all your belongings are snugly fit inside the moving van, chances are they will probably shuffle around a bit on the road. This can lead to things toppling over or bumping into other things, which can cause damage. Most moving vehicles come outfitted with grooves and bars especially designed to take care of this need. What you need to do is ensure that the packers & movers (or you yourself) take some strong twine or rope and loop these around each piece or through any spaces in the furniture and then tie it to the grooves. This will make sure everything stays stationary and safe during the move and you can enjoy stress-free removals.
