This is what we need to avoid. The booth tarp is not pulled down all the way, exposing the painted front to damage, and the stands are right up against the edge of the booth, rubbing and scuffing.

First things into the trailer are the speakers. They should go in like this; each face the opposite direction so they fit into each other and provide a small amount of extra room, good for getting the booth back further into the trailer and for getting the ramp properly placed (more on that later).

Next, the booth and the dreaded tarp. The booth should always be placed in the trailer with the door side against the wall (so that the painted side is not rubbing up against anything). The tarp is a bit too long on purpose--while in the trailer in transit, no part of the booth is exposed or directly rubbing up against the other pieces of equipment, therefore helping to preserve the paint job. Of course, this presents an issue when trying to move the booth...the tarp keeps getting stuck under the wheels! The solution...

On each end of the booth, grab the tarp at the middle and fold it over the top of itself, like so. Now you're free to move the booth without getting the wheels caught on the tarp.

Once the booth is wheeled into the trailer like this and is in position, pull the tarp down on both ends--you will have to move the booth forwards and backwards ever so slightly, but then the entire booth will be properly covered with the tarp and protected.

Make sure the lights are placed carefully on the foam.

Place the ramp and the stands like so. With the tarp fully covering the booth, the ramp can wedge up against the bottom of the booth (keeping it in place in transit) without scuffing the paint. The stands fit under the ramp (These pictures are deceptive; they're not actually hitting the lights)
