3 Expert Packing Tips for a Smooth Midweek Move

With the exception of professional movers and a few other specialised fields, most people are not practiced packers and movers. Getting all of your belongings to fit just so into your van rental can seem like a daunting and near impossible task when you first park it in the driveway. Too many of us have started loading furniture and boxes only to have to take it out and rearrange it. These common miscalculations lead to doubled efforts and a longer moving day. National Truck & Van Rental has years of experience providing reliable house and business moving Vans and Trucks and can provide advice on how best to pack then as efficiently as possible. We can make it easier for you when you rent a van.

Here are some packing tips to help make your move as stress free as possible so you're organised when you rent a van. Best part - you only have to do once!

  1. Start Large or Symmetrical Most people find that the easiest way to start loading is to tackle the big items first. That means starting with large pieces of furniture, appliances and any other big items, while smaller items can fill in gaps - or transported in a smaller vehicle. If you have a lot of same sized boxes, you can create a wall, filling the van from top to bottom.  This will help maximise space while still leaving enough room for the larger or more awkwardly shaped belongings. Be sure to load couches vertically to save even more space!
  2. Distribute the Weight Place heavier items along the outside and try to evenly distribute the weight. This thoughtful arrangement helps controlling and driving your rental van much easier. It will also help you move items more easily, since you won't be lifting all of your heaviest belongings back-to-back.
  3. Break-it-Down and Pack-it-Up Tables and other furniture that are easily disassembled should be taken apart to save space. Bookshelves, desks and other furniture with doors or storage space can be filled with smaller items or boxes. Be sure that items are secure and that you don't make the item too heavy to lift when you take advantage of those hidden spaces.
