Residential MoversAs a reputable Bay Area mover for over 20 years, Mont-Rose Moving Systems, Inc. has helped countless families and businesses move across the state, country, and even the world. We have also helped people execute their own moves and offered professional advice based upon our own San Jose relocation services. One of the most common mistakes we see is when people try to make three trips in one drive and overload their car. Not only is this bad for your vehicle, but stuffing and cramming your belongings in so tight will damage and even destroy some items; which is most likely not what you wanted to accomplish.

Here are four solid reasons why you should never overload your car when moving:

  • Excess weight can cause your wheels to bulge out and heat up increasing the risk of a blowout
  • Your suspension/traction control will not be able to handle highway speeds appropriately
  • Any sudden steering/maneuvering is almost certain to end in a spinout
  • Gas costs rise significantly due to excess weight
There are several other reasons to never overload your car and as your San Jose Moving and Storage experts we will always be here to offer tips and advice to our customers. If you would like to learn more, or are interested in a free quote, please call us at 855-817-2611 or fill out our form today.
