We understand moving is a lot of work. Moving into a new home can be exciting and nerve-wracking all at once with a lot of things to consider, from carrying all of your furniture and belongings into a moving truck, organizing all of your things in the hope that you can manage to make it all fit and probably calling up favors from relatives and friends. But our loading and unloading services let you skip those pesky planning details of trying to string together a moving crew only to find out everyone is suddenly busy.
What Are Loading and Unloading Services?
Our loading and unloading service saves you time and money by providing you with extra hands from moving pros. The Moving & Storage Pros pack up the truck with you, offer the know-how needed to effectively and efficiently pack a moving truck and provide with the tools necessary to move large cumbersome items.
Loading and unloading a moving truck is exhausting. From carrying your belongings up and down flights of stairs to up and down the moving truck’s ramp, you can make your next move as worry-free as possible by hiring us. Say no more to stressing over how you’re going to fit that sectional through the front door, or squeezing fragile lamps and mirrors into a moving truck and just crossing your fingers that they don’t break in transit.
How We Make It Easier
Some things can be nearly impossible to move on your own, especially without the right equipment. Not only do we supply the manpower with our team of expert movers but we also have the resources and tools necessary to streamline your moving experience. Below, we’ve listed household items some people overlook when it comes to big moves that our loading and unloading services make simple.

How We’ll Load Your Moving Truck
Step #1: The first thing to consider when packing up your moving truck is to take inventory of the amount of things you have to move and choosing the appropriately sized truck. Our moving and storage pros have packed many trucks in their day and they will make the appropriate recommendations needed to not overstuff your things and risk breaking them. We’ll make sure you don’t overdo it by renting a truck that’s too big too. An oversized moving truck means more things move around and risk damage or breaking.
Step #2: Next, we access the kinds of things you’re moving. Anything that falls on our list of tough things to move usually requires specific moving equipment most people don’t have, but we do! Dollies, straps and bungee cords can make moving refrigerators much easier.
Step #3: Planning is a crucial step in any project and loading and unloading a moving truck are no different. First and foremost, the loading and unloading area should be clear of obstacles and tripping hazards. Clearing a path ahead of time for you to carry belongings on and off the truck will prevent slip-and-fall incidents that could lead to dropping things before they make their way to the truck.
Step #4: Once some things have made their way onto the moving truck, it’s time to consider how your things fit together safely. Our team not only understands how to best arrange your belongings during the loading process but also how to protect them from damage through considered placement. Padding, cushion and properly placed bungee cords will keep your belongings safe and secure during your trip to your new home.
Step #5: Two words: weight distribution. The truck has to be loaded evenly so that while you’re in transit your things don’t come loose and slide around the back of the truck and potentially become damaged. Our team carefully considers placement of boxes and furniture for a secure trip.
Step #6: We understand order. The back of the truck is for the heaviest items. Placed against the wall of the cabin, your heavier things will not only help distribute the weight of everything else but will prevent the truck from fishtailing on the highway. We’ll stack your belongings back to front from the floor up. This will help ensure the most efficient use of the space on the truck and keep things from sliding over on top of one another.
We Can Unload Your Truck Too!
After a long day once you’ve finally arrived at your destination the last thing you’ll want to do is unload and unpack all of your things. We provide unloading services where we’ll meet you on location and finish the rest so you can get settled in your new home quicker and without all the added stress. The only thing you’ll have to consider is where you would like your things to go in your beautiful new home.
