Finally, a cargo bike load to make On The Bounce proud.
Moving day doesn’t always have to be a drag. I was able to load up my Yuba with four boxes from Brew City Boxes, plus a box of wine glasses on top (not a great idea for my first time out), PLUS the Yuba Go Getter bag down the middle.
I purchased some ratchet straps in the 15 foot sizeway which was a bit overkill. I should be able to haul a couple of barrels now.
As for the ride quality, the load wasn’t strapped down solidly enough, so it was a little wobbly, but once I got rolling there was less to worry about. It was the stopping and getting start again that scared me. But I managed to get everything there in one piece.
The bottom two boxes were also lighter in comparison to the top, so the balance was off. Can’t wait to help my next friend move and see if I can get the load a little better situated.
Also, Brew City Boxes was TOTALLY worth it. They drop off as many boxes as you need, you pack ‘em up, move ‘em over, and then they come pick them up. Their uniform size is easy to manage and stack. They’re made of heavy duty plastic, so they’re reusable and easy to slide in a truck bed.
Plus they’ve got dry erase labels on them, so you can wipe them clean when you’re done. By far the easiest part of the move was moving everything that was packed in those boxes.
As an added bonus, since you have to give the boxes back it gives you extra incentive to just unpack everything, instead of let it sit around, mouldering in cardboard boxes for a while.
