Before the truck arrives,moving boxes should be stacked in a way that makes them easily accessible. This might mean near the front door, or perhaps lined up in the garage. Moving boxes can be organized according to room, but set the fragile cardboard boxes aside. Boxes for moving that may be particularly fragile may even be set apart to be ride in the car instead of being jolted around with the heavy boxes and furniture. Picture frames and large decorative items such as vases can be added to the fragile list for the car and wrapped with protective moving supplies such as bubble wrap and stretch wrap.
When the truck arrives, the packing boxes should be lined up along the inside wall. They can be loaded from floor to ceiling in as many rows as is needed. The tighter they are packed the better, because this can help to prevent them from falling or sliding. Once all the boxes are secure, furniture and equipment can be loaded up. It is important to have moving blankets or a type of plastic wrap to protect the furniture. Call and talk to the moving company about the specific furniture that will be moved. They can help to suggest what types of packaging or moving accessories will be helpful for protecting the furniture that is being moved. Whoever is loading the truck should also be made aware if anything is antique or heirloom. Over protecting the things that are costly or sentimentally valuable is worth the effort. Getting everything moved successfully will be a great feeling.
