How to move heavy furniture?
When it comes to moving heavy furniture, it’s important to take the proper steps and use the right tools. Whether you need to move a couch, bed frame or dresser, taking the time to plan ahead can make all the difference. With some preparation and a few simple pointers, you’ll be able to do so with ease.
- Prepare the room. First, clear out the space. Remove any items from the floor or walls that may get in the way; this includes rugs, lamps, plants and any other wall hangings that could obstruct your path.
- Gather moving supplies. It is important to begin your move with the essential items such as cardboard boxes, bubble wrap and packing tape to ensure that all of your belongings stay safe during transit. You may also need to invest in a dolly or two for heavier furniture pieces like couches or armchairs.
- Use furniture sliders. Furniture sliders make it easier to move furniture without damaging floors or walls. There are a variety of slider sizes and shapes to choose from, so you can find the perfect ones for your needs. For example, felt sliders may be better suited for wood floors, while plastic sliders may work better on tile or vinyl surfaces.
- Lift carefully. To start off, squat down and get close to the object; keep your back straight as you rise up with the load on your feet instead of your arms or shoulders. Make sure everyone involved is wearing gloves for a better grip and has good balance, so no one loses their footing during the move.
- Disassemble large furniture. Identify all the nuts and bolts that hold your items together. You may need specific tools such as a wrench or screwdriver in order to remove them. If you don’t already have these tools on hand, they are usually available at local home improvement stores.
- Reassemble at the destination. It’s important that you remember the assembly instructions for each piece. If you don’t take the time to carefully record details such as screws and bolts, it will be much harder (if not impossible) to put everything back together once you reach your new home or office. Make sure you store these instructions in a safe place so they are easy to access when needed.
- Consider hiring a moving company. Our professional movers have the skills and expertise to move heavy pieces of furniture with ease without risking injury or damaging your property. Plus, they also provide additional services such as packing and unpacking, which can save you time and effort in the long run.
