The idea is to safley load as many items into as little a space as possible - this is known as "packing your unit".
Professional removal men when loading a storage room firstly look for what is termed a "builder" (like a chest of drawers or washing machine) this acts as a base for other items to be loaded on top. Then place boxes or light furniture on top until such time as they have a wall space filled from ground to roof, then start another line and so on.
Heavy items such as washing machines, pianos, wardrobes, chest of drawers, etc. are known as builders because of there heavy weight.
Where ever possible they should be placed at ground level as the weight may crush any item below.
Light items such as lightweight boxes, bags, golf bags, light furniture, etc. are known as fillers and can be placed on top of builders.
For example, you should not place a heavy box of books above a box of china or a heavy washing machine or piano on top of a sofa.
Forbidden goods are generally livestock, toxic goods, flammables, explosives, food items, plants and perishables.
If in doubt ask the company.
