Load larger items such as mattresses, refrigerators, dressers, BBQ grills, etc. in the unit first. Brace or secure your larger pieces against each other so they can’t shift within the unit. Don’t forget to protect your items. Wrap sofa and chair cushions in sheets or plastic bags/shrink wrap and use them as extra padding for larger items. Pack all smaller items in boxes. Remove lamp bulbs and shades before packing in boxes. Mirrors and pictures should get special attention and should be well padded for extra protection.
