Furniture Movers Heavy Furniture And Items Moving
At Furniture Movers, we say to our staff – use your brain rather than your muscles when moving something heavy. We say it for a good reason. It’s where many people who try DIY get it wrong. Muscle strength is just enough to move heavy items. Well, that’s what they think. Yes, Furniture Movers have to say them that they are wrong. OK let me put it this way. Can a bodybuilder win the gold medal in Olympic discuss throw? What if we compare the muscle strengths of the Olympic discuss throw champion and a huge bodybuilder? A bodybuilder is much stronger than the Olympic champion, but he can’t beat the Olympic champion in discuss throw. OK, it was a long explanation. In summary, muscle strength is not just enough to move heavy items safely. There should be a combination of experience, techniques, and muscle strength.
Coming to the topic now – moving heavy furniture and items. It could be the most challenging part of the house moving process (especially, if lots of stairs are involved.) Now, it’s the time to make the big decision. Considering the fact given above – muscle strength is not enough to move heavy items safely; make the decision. Am I going to do it myself or hire Furniture Movers? If you are still encouraged to do it yourself, then get 4-5 friends to help you.
Packing heavy items
You don’t have to pack heavy furniture and other heavy items for a move. Anyway, if it’s raining cats and dogs outside, then covering furniture with plastic sheeting is advisable. At Furniture Movers, we follow a method when packing heavy items. Make it lighter as much as you can by removing pieces. We often do it when transporting heavy furniture. Now, comes a challenging task. While the staff of a professional mover knows how to do it, many people can’t manage it. Don’t do it yourself if you don’t have an idea of doing it safely.
Pulling items is difficult than pushing. Anyway, on a house moving day; you can’t push or pull items. You will have to lift and carry them to save the carpet and flooring. How about moving a heavy safe? Professional movers consider it as one of the toughest items to move. Furniture Movers blog has articles on it. Professional movers use ramps when moving heavy items down the stairs (usually, two boards.) Make sure you have enough friends to help you when moving heavy items down the stairs depending on the size and weight of it.
Heavy electronics such as double-door refrigerators, washing machines, dishwashers, and so on. Moving them is more challenging as they can easily get damaged. What would you do if items won’t fit through the main door? It happens when people forget to take critical measurements. Again, dismantling is the option you got then. If nothing works, then hoisting is the final option, and Furniture Movers come ready for it anyway. Well, I have to say: it’s beyond your limit. Without professional helpers, don’t even think about it.
Moving heavy furniture and items is not a piece of cake. Anyway, Furniture Movers are experts in doing it safely for you. We are not that expensive (definitely, cheaper than DIY.)
