You should load your heavy appliances into the trailer first before anything else. Make sure to place them against the trailer's front wall and afterwards, continue loading your heavier belongings toward the front. However, don't stack your heavy items. Leave some vertical space for your lighter and bulky items. Be sure to take your time securing everything down.
Dismantle your outdoor equipment and have it ready for loading before moving day. Take down any swing sets, garden sheds, satellite dishes, or TV antennas you may have and keep them bundled together with nylon cords. You should store all of your smaller hardware items in a plastic bag and tape it to its larger parts.
Your boxes should always be filled to capacity in order to withstand the weight of other boxes once you start stacking. However, this doesn't mean that you should fill your boxes to the brim with heavy items; there must an even distribution of weight amongst all of your boxes. Fill in any cavities or empty space with packing material such as Styrofoam or packing peanuts.
The dilemma many families face on their first big move is lack of direction. A few items are packed throughout the week, some inquiries are made, and a few arrangements are taken care of, but by the time moving day arrives, they're nowhere near ready.
