1.) Maximize how you use moving blankets
Moving blankets, or pads, are typically used to cover and protect furniture and other belongings, but they can also be used to help move heavy items. Simply spread the blanket on the floor, place the item on the pad and drag it. This tip will help if the heavy lifting becomes too much and you want to relocate or rearrange items in the house.

2.) Invest in stretch wrap
Protect your items like a pro with this handy tool. Stretch wrap, unlike tape, is stick free and easy to apply and remove. Wrap furniture, cover drawers, keep cabinet doors closed and bundle awkward items together. Stretch wrap can also be used to wrap moving blankets and pads around furniture and other hefty items. The uses are really unlimited.
3.) Use furniture covers
Quilted furniture covers will protect your expensive furniture from rips, tears and stains during a move. The covers fit snugly over your furniture offering premium protection. They can also be used if you ever need to put furniture in storage. Moving blankets, or pads, are a great alternative if you don't want to invest in covers.
4.) Get Moving Bands
Moving bands are like giant rubber bands. They stretch over your furniture keeping your drawers in place, saving you the hassle of having to pull them from your furniture. Bands are also often used instead of sticky tapes to wrap moving blankets and pads around bulky furniture to ensure optimal protection.
