Essential Tools for Moving Day

Moving to a new home can be a daunting experience, and it’s not just the boxes that you need to worry about. There are several other tools that can make your move a lot easier, and save you a headache or two. So fear not, my friends, because in this article, we’ll explore the top five tools you need for a successful move. Let’s get into it.



Furniture Dollies

First up, we have furniture dollies. These bad boys are a lifesaver when it comes to moving heavy furniture, appliances, and other bulky items. They have wheels that allow you to easily move items from one room to another or load them onto a moving truck. They come in various sizes and styles, including those with straps to secure items and those with stair climbers to help you move up and down stairs.

When choosing a hand truck, make sure to select one that can handle the weight of your items and has a comfortable handle for gripping. You can rent hand trucks from your local hardware store or moving company, or you can purchase one for your own use.


Moving Blankets

Moving blankets are an essential tool for protecting your furniture during a move. They can be used to wrap large items like sofas, dressers, and mattresses to prevent scratches, scuffs, and other damage. And let’s not forget those delicate artworks and mirrors – who knew they were so fragile? Good thing we have the almighty moving blanket to save the day and prevent them from breaking during transport.

When selecting moving blankets, make sure to choose ones that are thick and durable, and large enough to cover your items completely. You can purchase moving blankets from a moving company or your local hardware store, or you can rent them from a moving company.


Furniture Sliders

Moving heavy furniture can be a back-breaking task, but thanks to furniture sliders, we can sit back and relax while our heavy furniture glides across the floor like it’s on a magic carpet ride! Furniture sliders are small, flat disks that are placed under the legs of heavy furniture, allowing it to slide across the floor with ease. Not only do they make moving furniture easier, but they also help protect your floors from scratches and damage.

When choosing furniture sliders, make sure to select ones that are the right size and weight capacity for your furniture. You can find them at your local hardware store or online. And the best part? They’re super cheap!


Bubble Wrap

Oh, bubble wrap. Who doesn’t love the satisfaction of popping those little bubbles, right? But as a matter of fact, it’s not just for fun and games – it’s also super useful for packing up those delicate items like glassware, ceramics, and electronics.It comes in rolls or sheets and is designed to protect your items from bumps and shocks during transport. You can also use it to fill in any gaps in your boxes to prevent items from shifting during the move.

Many moving supply stores sell bubble wrap in various sizes and quantities. You can visit a local store or order online to get the bubble wrap you need. If you’ve received packages in the past with bubble wrap, you can even save that and reuse it for your move. Just be sure to inspect it for any tears or damage before using it again!


Packing Tape

Last but not least, we have packing tape. Because let’s face it, nothing says “I’m a responsible adult” like using enough tape to secure your boxes during the move. And with various strengths and widths to choose from, you can feel like a true tape connoisseur as you select the perfect type for each box.

Packing tape is an essential tool for securing your boxes during a move, which means that when it comes to packing tape, quality matters. Cheap, low-quality tape may not stick well or may peel off, leaving your boxes unsecured. It’s worth investing in a high-quality tape to ensure that your boxes are securely sealed.


The Takeaway

All you need is a few “essential” tools to make your move a success. And by success, we mean surviving the process without collapsing from exhaustion or breaking your back. Of course you will also need careful planning and some organization, but having the right tools is a good place to start! So start stocking up, and don’t forget the Advil!
