There’s plenty to be aware of when moving. If you’re moving to a new office, home or simply want to arrange your space There is every time a correct and a incorrect way to go about it. For furniture it is better off if you follow specific guidelines to make sure that no harm happens to you, others or any other items. Furniture of different types requires different amounts of care and moving methods. These are general rules for ensuring your safety as well as the safety of others around you while the furniture is being moved.

Heavy furniture
For heavier items like sofas and couches You may want to consider purchasing sliders that can be placed underneath the legs when moving the furniture on a slippery flooring like floorboards, tiles, or linoleum. Keep your back in a lower position when pushing furniture, and make sure you bend your knees at the knees, rather than bending your back only. Being low when pushing can make lifting heavier objects more comfortable.

If furniture pieces are able to be removed, you should move them first. Move lighter items first, before larger or bulky objects that might require extra space for transport. Clearing the path will make it easier to carry the items, carry them, and eventually transport heavier items.

If you are able to avoid having to move the piano by yourself, do it. Pianos are extremely volatile objects to move, and are recommended to be handled by experts.

Secure your furniture
If you believe that certain objects are in danger of getting damaged during the move be sure to wrap them in plastic before you move them. Tables made of wood may require plastic sheets to shield them from damage if they are placed on an outside of the car or to avoid scratching. Glass-topped tables require a bit more care, and you’ll need to be more careful when wrapping them. If you want to do an easy DIY task, you could wrap it in bubble wrap in a series, before wrapping the table in styrofoam and then putting it in a container carefully. For items that are more fragile it is recommended to hire a professional to move the items. Certain moving companies provide one-piece services, so you can request them to move just a few things for you if you do not require a complete moving service.

Label any fragile items. If you’re doing the work by yourself or have hired an experienced moving company ensure that you label any delicate items and boxes with the word FRAGILE in order to ensure that others are aware and to remind yourself throughout the process of moving. You’re likely to be unable to keep track of what’s where during the chaos of moving, but labelling your boxes will ensure that they’re handled with care regardless of who is taking care of them.

Be secure
If you’re going to be in danger while moving furniture, dress in clothing that protects yourself. For example, if it is likely that you will scratch yourself while moving make sure you wear longer sleeves and pants whenever you can. When lifting heavy objects it is recommended to wear gloves and remember to always lift with your knees.

Make sure you have a clear and well-lit route for furniture you are moving. Make sure that all pets and children are safe prior to moving. Also, be sure to communicate with those who will assist you in moving.

The most important thing to remember when moving is to slow down. The faster you go through the procedure, the more likely you’re likely to hurt you, someone else, or cause damage to other objects in the process.

If you’re unsure it’s best to let professionals take care of the issue. Sometimes, it’s best to invest some money to gain security.
