When driving your moving truck, always make wide turns! Especially when near curbs, it is important to watch your back tires to make sure they do not bump over anything. This bump could shake the truck, causing some of your belongings to break inside the back of the vehicle. The simple act of making wide [...]

Stacking Boxes

When stacking boxes, whether it be in your house or on the moving truck, always put the heavy boxes on the bottom and the light boxes on top. This will keep your lighter boxes and their contents from being crushed by the heavier boxes.

Don’t Try to Be a Hero

2019-11-04T08:14:52-07:00

When moving, it can sometimes be tempting to attempt to pick up extremely heavy items by yourself. However, this can often lead to broken items and/or serious injury (both to your body and your pride). Always err on the side of safety, whether that means using a dolly or asking another person for help. After [...]

Don’t Break a Leg!

2019-10-28T06:29:12-07:00

When loading up and packing your moving truck, it is normal (and usually wise) to stack boxes and other items on top of tables or other flat-topped pieces of furniture. However, if these legs are long and skinny, too much weight on top of the furniture can cause the legs to snap. To avoid this, [...]

Will It Fit?

When moving into a new home, make sure that all your larger pieces of furniture will fit where you want them to go. Check the doorways and staircases to make sure they are all wide and tall enough and check any sharp turns to be sure that the furniture will be able to make it [...]

Don’t forget the straps!

2019-11-15T04:45:16-07:00

When loading up a moving truck, it is essential to use ratchet straps to keep your things from sliding around inside the truck. Typically, if you are loading a full 26-foot truck, you should be safe with 8-10 ratchet straps. However, if you are worried that you will not have enough straps, go ahead and [...]

DRINK WATER!

2019-10-07T06:51:54-07:00

This may appear to be an obvious tip, but it is one that can be easily forgotten during a move. Think beforehand how you will have access to water for yourself and for those helping you. Decide if you will buy packs of bottled water or if you will carry around your own refillable bottle. [...]
