How to Load a Go Mini's Container Efficiently

Efficiently loading your Go Mini's container is essential for saving both time and space. Begin by loading heavy items like appliances and large furniture towards the front and bottom of the container to ensure stability. Utilize smaller boxes and items to fill any gaps between larger items to prevent shifting during transport. Strategically stack lighter items and boxes on top of heavier ones, ensuring weight distribution is even. Secure all items using straps or ropes to prevent movement during transit. Additionally, if feasible, leave a small aisle in the center of the container to facilitate easy access to items. Following these steps will optimize the loading process for your Go Mini's container.
