    Does it matter where I put the 900 lb. in the moving truck?
    Meaning front of back?

    The heaviest items should normally be just forward of the rear axle.

    What kind of truck?

    Personally I always put the heaviest items as far forward as possible.

    That probably works as well. The main thing is to get it forward of the rear axle so the load is distributed to both axles. Or however many axles it has.

    You might also consider when in the unloading it would be best to move the safe from the truck to the house. As well as what condition you and your buddies (the ones helping that couldn't come up with a quite enough excuse) are in when you get to the safe within the load.

    Being worn out and facing a 900lb safe and needing to get the truck turned back in is not fun.

    Lol!
    No kidding! I'm just worried about scratching that bad boy! I don't own much expensive stuff, just lots of guns, sweet safe, and some Amish furniture
