Every home has one. That piece of solid furniture that weighs a ton. While it may be beautiful as a showpiece, or comfortable as something you can rest on, furniture can be EXTREMELY heavy.
GETMOVERS lifts and moves giant pieces of furniture every single day. We don’t say this to brag, but we say this to make a point: moving furniture is best left to the professionals.
We can’t count how many times we’ve received a call from a client saying they’ve thrown their back out moving their couch. While we’re happy to accept their business, we just wish they’d have called us a little sooner!
Calling a professional moving company to move furniture is one of the smartest decisions you can make. It saves you some heavy lifting, and maybe a trip to the pharmacy! Narrow openings, tight turns, stairs—all of these can spell disaster while moving furniture.
Moving a couch, moving a dresser, moving a tv stand—whatever furniture moving you’re doing. Don’t do it alone! Call a strong friend to give you a hand. No need to be a hero.
GETMOVERS have the experience and expertise to move furniture the right way. We are cost effective, fast, and we put an emphasis on customer service. Our team is carefully chosen with those values in mind. We’ve built our reputation of furniture moving in Canada on our quality of service, and client referrals. With GETMOVERS, you don’t just get someone to come and move your furniture—you get a professional company to ensure the job is done properly.
TIPS FOR MOVING FURNITURE
If you’re going to move furniture yourself, we want you to do it safely. That’s why we came up with this list of furniture moving tips.
1. Use your head instead of your back.
It sounds silly but we’re serious. Plan ahead. Know the dimensions of your space vs the dimensions of your couch. Ensure that you’re prepared for the twists and turns of your hallways when you get to them. This tip will save you a ton of trouble. Take the time, and plan ahead.
2. Moving a couch
When going through a doorway, it’s often easier to stand the couch on end. Just be careful of the ceiling!
3. Furniture carrying straps
There’s this beautiful invention called the “shoulder dolly”. They are heavy duty straps that go over your shoulders to more even spread the weight of the furniture you’re carrying. This saves your back from the intense pressure of moving furniture, and overall makes the job feel much lighter.
4. Slide your furniture
Why fight gravity when you can work with it? Got an extra rug or towel lying around? Slide it under the piece of furniture you’re wanting to move and you’ll immediately notice how easily it slides around. Of course, you don’t want to be sliding the furniture down the stairs, but if you’ve got a nice, smooth floor to work with—you’re golden.
5. Protect furniture
Wrap it up. Your walls look nice without holes, and your furniture looks nice with no scratches. Let’s keep it that way. Wrap your furniture in blankets and towels to prevent damage. It takes a little bit of prep work but trust us when we say: it’s better than having to repair your couch.
6. Take the back off a recliner
Did you know that most recliners come with a removable back? Without taking the back off a recliner, they’re super awkward with very uneven weight distribution. Not only does taking the back off your recliner make it smaller, it also makes it way easier to carry. This simple tip can save you a huge headache.
7. Use Ramps
Ramps are a simple yet genius way to move furniture from a low platform to a high one. Plywood works great, but steel ramps are the best. If you combine the ramp with the blanket underneath, you’re sliding your way to an easy move.
If all of this seems like a lot, call GETMOVERS. We’ll handle every single facet of your furniture moving from beginning to end. We are Canada’s first choice for furniture moving!
We’ve ordered residential moving and already knew all possible difficulties. Time-consuming tasks like packing fragile items and furniture installation seemed so complicated. I was happy to know GetMovers are experienced movers, one of the best in Canada. They knew how to treat unique items and had special containers, boxes, and other packing tools. In short, you may be calm about your belongings with GetMovers.
