There’s plenty to consider when moving. It doesn’t matter if you’re moving into new office, house or simply looking to rearrange your room, there is always a right and a wrong way to go about it. With furniture in particular it is better off if you have specific guidelines to ensure no harm comes to yourself, other people or any other items. Furniture of different types requires different amounts of care and moving procedures. Here are some general guidelines to ensure your safety and that of others around you while your moving furniture.

Heavy furniture
For furniture that is heavy, like sofas and couches, you may want to look into buying sliders to set underneath the legs when moving it on a slick surface like floorboards linoleum, or tiles. Keep your back in a lower position when pushing furniture. Make sure that you bend your knees at the knees, rather than bending your back only. Being low when pushing will make moving heavier items more comfortable.

If furniture pieces are able to be removed, you should move these first. Transport easier items before heavier or bulky items that may require additional space to transport. Clearing space makes it much easier to handle, carry, and ultimately move more cumbersome items.

If you are able to avoid having to move the piano by yourself, do so. Pianos are extremely volatile items to move and are recommended to be transported by experts.

Secure your furniture
If you are concerned that specific items are at risk of getting damaged during the move, wrap them before you begin transporting them. Tables made of wood may be wrapped in plastic to safeguard them when they are located on an outside of the vehicle or if you need to stop scratching. Glass-topped tables require a bit more care, and you’ll need to be more delicate wrapping them. For a DIY project, you can wrap it in bubble wrap in a series, before wrapping the table in styrofoam and then placing it in a safe container. For more delicate items you should let a professional service move them. Some moving companies offer a single-item service so you could ask for them to relocate a few items on your behalf if you don’t require a full-time moving service.

Label any fragile items. Whether you’re doing the job yourself or working with an experienced moving company be sure to label any delicate items and boxes as FRAGILE . This will ensure that others are aware and to remind yourself throughout the moving process. You’re likely to not be aware of what’s where in the chaos of moving. Labelling your boxes will make sure they’re handled with care, no matter who is taking care of them.

Stay secure
If you’re going to be in danger while moving furniture, make sure you wear clothes that protects yourself. In particular, if it is possible to scratch yourself as you move take care to wear long sleeves and pants whenever feasible. When lifting heavy objects be sure to wear gloves and always lift using your knees.

You must create a clear and clear pathway for furniture you are moving. Make sure that all pets and children are out of harm’s way before you start moving and connect with other people who are helping you move.

The most important factor to consider when moving is to be patient. The faster you speed through the process, the more likely you’re at risk of injuring you, someone else, or damage other objects or objects during the process.

If you’re in doubt leave it to the experts to handle the issue. Sometimes it’s better to pay some money to gain peace of mind.
