Your belongings can shift during transportation, especially long distance moves, so it adds an extra layer of protection to tie down your items in the moving truck. The best choice for this is ratchet straps
, but you could also use bungee cords or ropes. Every 5 feet of packing items should be tied down in a cross shape. It’s essential to tighten the strap because if it’s loose then it’s not gonna help secure the items.
