3 Furniture Moving Tips to Prevent Damage , Ewa, Hawaii

Furniture moving is typically the most complicated part of relocating to a new home. The pieces are often heavy and awkwardly shaped, so require special care and planning to move safely. Use the tips below to prevent damage to your furnishings and your old or new property. 

How to Safely Move Your Furniture

1. Have Two People Move Long or Tall Objects

When moving a long couch or tall dresser, two people are needed. Move the piece to where its longest length is upright, which might mean standing a couch on its ends. Tip the item at a backward angle so one person can carry the top and the other can grab and hold the bottom. This position centers the weight, making it easier to carry the object and maneuver around corners, up or down stairs, and through doorways. 

2. Wrap Pieces With Blankets

3. Use Specialized Equipment

Furniture moving can take a toll on anyone’s body. A dolly and lifting straps take some of the stress off your body by providing extra leverage. You can then focus on carefully moving each item and more easily make adjustments. 

 

The best way to prevent furniture damage is to hire experienced movers who know how to safely handle belongings.
