When planning on moving to a new home whether it is across the country or just simply down the street, most people usually put off the task until there are absolutely no options left. This will make the process not only hard but also agonizing, particularly if you didn’t plan ahead and make sure that you had a specific date by which everything would be done. Moving—like getting a tooth pulled or driving for a very long time through uninteresting landscapes—is one of those trials almost everyone must face. It’s never exactly fun, but it usually leads to a beneficial outcome. Of course, the success of the endeavor depends a lot on avoiding moving mistakes and planning ahead to make sure things run as smoothly as possible.

Protect your remaining furniture. Though some people like to wrap their furniture in advance, it’s best to wrap the items as soon as you get them in a truck. When you move an item into the truck, you should put it on top of the paper padding, cover it in the padding, and then tape it down. Here are some extra tips for protecting your furniture:

  • For extra protection, after you wrap a mirror or painting, you can put it between your mattress and box spring, or surround it by cushions.
  • Wrap up your couch cushions and pillows.
  • Wrap your mattresses.
  • If you plan ahead, you probably have a lot of things that you need to move with you anyway that would make great protective pads in the truck. When packing your house, leave all blankets, sheets, towels and other linens unboxed and use them when packing.

Move the longer items into the truck. These will include your sofas, table-tops, headboards, long mirrors, and your box spring and mattress. Put them against the longest walls of the truck to save space and keep them upright. Secure these items to the side of the truck with ties if it has a place for them.

  • Your sofa, mattress, and box spring will provide cushion for other items.
  • Put dressers and desks against your mattresses so the drawers can have a cushion if they open.
  • Any item with drawers should be facing the truck walls so the drawers can’t open too much.
