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, be sure to test the durability/strength of your furniture’s legs prior to your move; this will allow you to have a better plan on moving day for how to efficiently and safely pack your truck.
