Regardless of whether you are moving from one home to another or you are planning on moving your business to another location, you need to make sure you have the right equipment in place to get the job done. There is no need to make the job any harder on yourself than needed. Thanks to an assortment of different products available, you can get through your move easily and quickly. Here are three pieces of moving equipment you need to add to your collection today.
Furniture pads are an ingenious invention that allows you to easily slide your large desk or bedroom dresser from one area of your property to another. You simply slide the furniture pads underneath all of the legs for your piece and push it along to make furniture moving a breeze. The pads make it where the legs aren’t going to scratch up your floor, while allowing you to move even the heaviest of objects without a tremendous amount of effort and strength. Sure, you have to slide the pads underneath of the item, but they are pretty slim meaning you don’t have to life the leg off the floor too far to get it done.
If you have to move appliances or large file cabinets, dollies tend to work great. They allow you to get underneath of the large item and tip it back to where you can manage it better. These are perfect for when you are moving from one location to another and need to move the heavy objects out of the space entirely. Dollies can often accommodate a significant amount of weight, but that all depends on which brand and type you get. There are dollies specifically for appliances and larger items, so check weight ratings first before making your purchase.
Forearm straps allow you to get underneath of an item and carry it out. You simply put these straps underneath of a dresser or nightstand for example and then loop them around your forearms to help give you a little added stability when it comes time to move the item. This also helps to prevent the item from tipping all over the place when going from one area to another. They come in an assortment of sizes and lengths to best accommodate the user.
