What's the Difference Between Woven and Non-Woven Moving Pads?

Moving pads, also known as moving blankets, are used to make sure a move goes smoothly. The pads are used to protect furniture, appliances and quality items while moving belongings out of the house and during transit in the the back of the truck.

Selecting the right moving blanket can be tricky. Consider the type of fabric and binding used to make the blanket. Those qualities will help you determine the pad’s durability and intended use.

Woven Moving Pads

Woven fabrics and bindings are used to make high quality moving blankets that are designed to be used over and over again. These pads are heavier and more durable compared to non-woven materials. Woven fabrics can be made from cotton, a cotton/polyester mix and polyester. The bindings, or the material around the outside edge of the blanket, are also woven.

US Cargo Control offers several woven pads that are all machine washable (line-dry).

Non-Woven Moving Pads

Non-woven fabrics and bindings are still a good option, but are lighter and are earmarked for limited uses. Non-woven fabric is a more cost conscious choice, great for one-time moves or as warehouse storage pads. US Cargo Control offers several pads made with non-woven materials.

  • Econo Deluxe Made with non-woven polyester and bound with non-woven polyester.
  • Econo Mover Made with non-woven polyester and bound with non-woven polyester.
  • Econo Saver (BEST SELLER) Made with non-woven polyester and bound with non-woven polyester

US Cargo Control also offers several middle-of-the-road options for those looking for a combination of the previously discussed blankets. These blankets are made with both woven and non-woven materials and are more cost effective compared to a completely woven pad, but are more durable compared to a completely non-woven pad.
  • Mega Mover (BEST SELLER) Made with woven polyester and bound with non-woven polyester
  • Multi Mover Made with woven and non-woven polyester and bound with non-woven polyester.
  • Camo Made with woven polyester and bound with non-woven polyester.
