All large items, that are able to be taken apart, should be dismantled in order to create more space for the other property in the truck and to make the actual moving as simple as possible. Customers should pack their belongings according to weight and delicacy, and label all of the packed items accordingly. Do not pack anything that can possibly damage other items.
