Tips For Loading Your Belongings Into A Colorado Moving Truck

Moving can be a pain, which is why many people decide to hire a Colorado moving company instead of doing it on their own. This is a decision that you definitely will not regret since professional movers make this process much easier. However, if you are adamant about moving without any professional help, the least that you can do is learn how to load a moving truck like the pros. Follow these tips:

Load Boxes From Heaviest to Lightest

It’s recommended that you always use standard cardboard moving boxes instead of alternatives such as plastic bins. Once you have purchased the boxes, start to pack up the belongings in your home. Begin to separate your boxes into three different groups as you pack: heavy, average, and lightweight boxes. This will make it easier to find what you’re looking for when you’re ready to load the boxes onto the truck. The heavier boxes should always be on the floor, with average and lightweight boxes stacked on top. Of course, the lightest boxes should always be at the top, where the stack is closest to the ceiling.

Balance the Weight

It’s not a good idea to line up heavy furniture items on one side of the truck and then reserve the other side of the truck for your bedding and pillows. Why? The weight of your belongings needs to be evenly distributed. If it’s not, the driver may have a hard time controlling the truck. Pay close attention to where you are placing your items and ensure that everything is balanced to prevent accidents on the road.

A good way to ensure the weight is distributed evenly is by thinking of the capital letter “I.” Try to place heavy items inside the truck so that they form the shape of this letter. This means heavy items should be placed against the back wall, down the middle of the truck, and against the door. Read more tips to help you pack a moving truck.

Bring Fragile Items With You

Wrapping fragile items such as paintings, vases, and lamps in padding may be enough to protect them until you arrive at your final destination. But, if you don’t want to take any chances, it’s best to keep fragile items with you in your vehicle or in the driver’s cabin of the truck instead of loading them in the back.

Fill Empty Spaces

The last items you should load onto a truck can be stuffed into empty spaces. This includes bags of clothing, bedding, towels, and any other items that can squeeze into small spaces without being damaged. Once everything else has been loaded onto your truck, peek around for holes and fill them with these items.

Loading your belongings into a moving truck can be a hassle, so it’s best to leave this task to the professionals. Contact Eden’s Moving Company to discuss local and long-distance moving services. Call us today to learn more about our services and request a quote.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services!

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
