Moving heavy furniture pieces isn’t easy and is especially true if you have never done it before. You can get injured easily or damage your possessions due to improper techniques. Here are a few useful tips for moving your furniture when relocating:
1. Disassemble Heavy Furniture
Larger furniture pieces will be easier and safer to move once disassembled. Items like dressers, bookshelves, armchairs, beds, and tables are all challenging to move. Safety should be your top priority while handling such tasks, and disassembling them is a smarter way to pack, haul and transport them. Here are a few reasons to disassemble your furniture:
2. The Proper Techniques
Using the proper lifting techniques is a crucial part while moving. This will significantly reduce the likelihood of serious injuries. Keep in mind that you will be twisting, bending, pulling, and pushing, using specific muscles you may not have used in a while. It’s crucial to be acquainted with the proper techniques. For instance, use for legs and not your back to lift heavy furniture. You can reduce the risk of injury by bending your knees, keeping your back straight, and using the strength of your legs to lift. Consider using sliders or a furniture dolly for larger pieces.
3. Get Professional Help
You’re making the task harder for yourself by attempting to move these large pieces alone. Not many people can carry heavy objects themselves. However, when you hire movers for the job, they come as a team. You can ask your friends, family, or close relative whether they can assist you with relocation. Once you have a team, you need to allot them with specific tasks. They need to be aware of all safety procedures to eliminate the chances of injury. Besides, you need to see that you have all the necessary equipment to move these heavy items.
