Furniture Moving Tips and Tricks

Moving FurnitureMoving to a new property can be stressful, especially when it comes to transporting your huge furniture and appliances. A moving company might be able to help you get your things from one place to another, but it is also your responsibility to secure it to prevent damages.

Below are some practical things to use to make packing and transporting your stuff easier and safer.

Straps

Shipping and mining companies are not the only ones who have use for various strapping tools; you, as an average person, can use it when you are in need of a strong bonding material. You may choose from the different types of strapping materials depending on your needs.

Sliders

If you are short on movers, or if your furniture is exaggeratedly heavy, using furniture sliders can help you get the job done easily. These sliders are pads that allow your furniture to slide without any damage.

Blankets

Avoid dents and cracks, especially on furniture edges by wrapping heavy-duty blankets on your furniture. Professional movers use this method to protect the item they are moving. Hold the sheet in place by wrapping it with a commercial cling wrap.

Tarpaulin

A great blanket substitute is tarps or plastic sheeting. Like blankets, it can protect your furniture from dents and cracks.

Plywood

Stairs are often a problem when it comes to moving. Avoid accidents by using plywood (or other concrete flat surface) as a slide. This simple tool can help you get heavy furniture down quickly and safely.

Moving is often a daunting task. However, with the right tips, tricks, and tactics, it can be easier and safer not just for your family, but also for the movers. Pack and transport wisely!
