Recruit help!  Who do you know that's big, strong and good-hearted?

Load the heaviest items first and put them closest to the cab.  It will help to keep the truck stable on the road.

Load the truck a quarter at a time, packing it tightly from the floor to the ceiling.  Secure each quarter with rope or strapping attached to the tie-down rings.

Place large, heavy furniture and appliances against the front wall of the truck.  Then load chairs, tables, bookcases and lighter items.

Always stand large, flat items like mirrors, mattresses, box springs and tabletops upright against the truck walls. Pad generously (use your mattresses) and strap them in securely.

Stack smaller, lighter boxes and items on top of the larger, heavier ones.

Carry valuables with you.  Get a good padlock for the truck's door.

Pack a special box for things you'll need on the trip and on the first night.  So, what are you going to need?  Consider maps, a simple meal for everyone, snacks, refreshments, entertainment for the kids, a change of clothes for everyone, toiletries and toothbrushes, medications, a first aid kit, towels, plastic utensils, a pencil and paper, flashlight, batteries, chargers, and a small tool kit with what you'll need to re-assemble what you've taken apart … etc.  Keep this box with you or make sure it's loaded on the truck last.

Don't be in a hurry.  Load carefully and drive carefully.  Be sure to adjust the seat position and mirrors, then familiarize yourself with the truck’s instruments and controls before you start out.
