How to Load Your Container

Loading your container

  • There is a 6000 lb weight limit on the contents of the container (when moving).
  • When loading your container, place heavier items on the bottom and light items on the top.
  • Try to distribute the weight evenly across the container.
  • Dressers, cabinets and buffets make great foundations to stack lighter items on.
  • Protect your furniture with moving blankets.
  • Load middleweight boxes and furniture next.
  • Light furniture and boxes can used to fill gaps throughout loading.
  • Don’t save all your boxes for the end.
  • Remember to turn your couches, box springs and mattresses on end to save space.
  • Tie down all your belongings a section at a time by using our conveniently placed eye-hooks inside your container.
