Dollies, Hand Trucks, Carts and Straps
For large furniture pieces and appliances, make sure to have hand trucks or dollies available to roll a piece from the home into the truck. While moving large pieces, be sure to secure the item to the dolly using straps. Once your items have been loaded on to the truck, secure items in place using straps attached to the inside walls of the truck.
Furniture Blankets and Stretch Wrap
Furniture blankets also known as furniture pads or furniture quilts, can be rented or purchased from truck rental companies, moving companies, and some storage facilities. Furniture pads should be used to protect all your furniture items from being scratched, chipped, or damaged while being moved from point A to point B. Stretch wrap which is like an industrial saran wrap can also be purchased from movers or storage facilities. Once you’ve padded furniture items with furniture blankets, stretch wrap each piece to secure the padding to the piece. Items that are stretch wrapped will be less likely to be damaged since the adhesive quality prevents items from shifting around on the truck.
