How Do You Put a Wooden Bed on a Truck?

Putting a wooden bed on a truck is not as difficult as it may seem. It takes some preparation, planning, and knowledge of the right techniques to get the job done correctly. With a few simple steps, you can safely and securely move your wooden bed onto a truck for transportation.

Step 1: Measure the Bed

The first step is to measure the bed frame and mattress size to determine what type of truck you will need. You want to make sure that the bed will fit in the truck and that it will not be too large for it. You should also take into account any additional items that you plan to transport with it.

Step 2: Gather Necessary Supplies

Once you have determined what type of truck you need, gather all necessary supplies such as straps, blankets, rope, or furniture pads. These items will help protect your bed from scratches or dents during transport.

Step 3: Preparing the Bed

Once you have gathered all necessary supplies, disassemble your bed frame if possible. Make sure to place screws and bolts in a secure container so they do not get lost during transport. If possible, remove any hardware from the headboard or footboard as well.

Step 4: Lifting onto Truck

  • If two people are available, one person can hold each end of the bed frame while one person lifts it onto the truck.
  • If only one person is available, use either straps or rope to tie each end of the frame together for easier lifting.

Once securely on the truck, use straps or rope to secure it in place so that it does not shift during transport.

Make sure there is enough clearance between the bed frame and walls of the truck so no damage occurs while driving.


Putting a wooden bed on a truck doesn’t have to be a difficult task if done properly with adequate preparation and planning. Make sure to measure your furniture before selecting a truck for transport and gather all necessary supplies such as straps or ropes for securing your furniture in place once loaded on board.
