4 Tips for Moving Furniture
If you’re moving house or you’re just moving a couch from one room to another, it can be a trial to get heavy furniture situated. However, here are some quick and easy ways to move furniture, either on your own or with the help of another person, that won’t leave you injured or exhausted.

When carrying tall items, like a shelving unit or a dresser, it’s certainly awkward to do by yourself. Adding just one more person makes it much easier – and if you tilt the tall item diagonally so one of you is carrying it at the bottom and another at the top, it becomes much more manageable to navigate doors, hallways, and even staircases.

Doorways are the bane of most people when it comes to moving large, oddly-shaped pieces of furniture like easy chairs and couches. In many cases, this requires a three-dimensional approach. Large, overstuffed chairs that are wider than a door frame can be turned on their side and threaded through the doorway by pushing the back of the seat first and then rotating it through the rest of the doorway. Couches and sofas can be fit through the same way, though if your ceiling or door frame is low you’ll have to begin tilting the sofa vertically a few feet from the door to provide yourself some extra clearance.

Meanwhile, all this lifting and hauling can easily tire you out. Worse yet, if you lift wrong you could end up doing damage to your back! That’s why professional removalists often recommend using lifting and moving straps to redistribute the weight of heavy pieces of furniture so the strain is on larger groups of muscles that can more easily withstand the force. Additionally, these straps rely on leverage to make it much easier to lift and carry objects that would otherwise be a pain; many straps are adjustable to some degree in order to accommodate shorter or taller movers and differently-shaped and sized furniture.

Finally, you might not even have to pick up, lift, or carry your furniture at all. Instead, you can simply slide it. There are a plethora of furniture slides available for purchase both online and at brick and mortar home centers. In a pinch you can even improvise a floor slider yourself; scraps of old carpet, towels, bedspreads or sheets, moving blankets, even Frisbees or the covers from plastic containers can do the trick. Use soft, padded ones if you’re moving your furniture over hardwood and hard plastic ones if you’re moving items over carpet.
