3 Tips for Moving Furniture

by Rick Jarzembowski 11/05/2018

If you recently bought or sold a house, you may need to vacate your residence sooner rather than later. This probably means that you'll need to prepare a wide range of large items for moving day, including your furniture.

Ultimately, moving furniture from Point A to Point B can be quick and simple – here are three tips to help you transport chairs, couches and other furniture to your new address.

1. Pick Up Furniture Sliders

When it comes to moving furniture, it pays to work smart – not hard. If you purchase furniture sliders prior to moving day, you should have no trouble moving furniture over carpet, grass or other rough surfaces.

Furniture sliders usually are inexpensive and easy to find at any hardware or home goods store. Plus, these sliders can be placed under the legs of any chair or couch to make it simple for you to glide your furniture across rough surfaces.

To install furniture sliders, you'll need to lift each corner of a piece of furniture and move the sliders underneath. By doing so, you can use these sliders to reduce friction when you push furniture across a rough surface, resulting in a faster, more efficient move.

2. Consider Lifting Straps and a Hand Truck

Let's face it – furniture can be tough to move on your own. Fortunately, if you purchase lifting straps and a hand truck, you can avoid putting too much pressure on your body while you move furniture.

Lifting straps are designed to help minimize weight on your back, making them ideal for moving furniture and other heavy objects. They require two people to use and help these individuals share the weight of heavy items. However, you should not use lifting straps if you plan to move furniture up or down stairs, as the weight of a piece of furniture will shift to the person on the bottom.

Also, a hand truck represents a worthwhile moving day investment, particularly for those who need to move lots of furniture quickly. Hand trucks are available in a variety of sizes and enable you to wheel furniture in and out of a home.

3. Hire a Moving Company

If you need to move furniture and have no idea what to do, there is no need to worry. Many moving companies are available in cities and towns nationwide, and each of these businesses employs friendly, knowledgeable moving professionals.

Moving furniture can be time-consuming and physically demanding. On the other hand, if you hire a moving company, you can avoid the challenges commonly associated with moving furniture from one location to another.

Lastly, if you need extra help to move furniture or other heavy items, you should consult with a real estate agent. In addition to helping you buy or sell a house, a real estate agent can connect you with the top moving companies in any area.

Enjoy a quick, seamless transition to a new address – use the aforementioned tips, and you can simplify the process of getting your furniture to your new address.
