PRLog - Sep. 26, 2012 - SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- In a recent blog post Sacramento Movers described how to load a moving truck. If you’ve decided to do the move yourself and rent out a moving truck, you may want to consider how you will efficiently and safely pack the truck. Or perhaps you’ve hired movers to do your move but you still want to understand the process for loading a moving truck. In their blog post, Sacramento Movers break down the truck into sections called “tiers” and explain how to load each tier.

Fill the attic. The attic is the part of the moving truck that stretches out above the cab of the truck. It is the perfect place to put your dining table and antiques. First lay down furniture pads and place your padded and stretch wrapped dining table upside down in the attic of the truck. Pack boxes or padded antique items on top and around the table. Fill any extra space with light weight or soft items such as rolled up rugs, linens, or pillows. Secure attic items in place using straps. You can also stand a mattress up against the front of the truck so that the top of the mattress provides a wall for the items in the attic.
Tier 1. This is the front of the moving truck right behind the cab and the attic. Tier 1 is where you can stand mattresses and box springs on their sides. You can place your padded pictures, mirrors, or headboards between mattresses for extra cushioning. Place the sofa and love seat on end and use straps to secure each one to the side of the truck. Any other heavy furniture should be secured in this tier. Stack items from floor to ceiling, putting heavy items on the bottom and lighter items on the top. Make sure to pack tightly, leaving no space for shifting. Once you’ve filled this tier to the ceiling, section it off and secure the load with straps.
