On a mission to make the moving process less stressful, Movers.com offers a library of packing and moving resources, along with its no-cost estimate tool. With its new guide, titled “How to Protect Your House When Moving”, the moving experts are sharing tips on protecting floors, walls, and banisters during the moving process.
“Moving heavy furniture and other household items around the house can cause a lot of damage to the floors, ceiling, walls, and doors,” says Movers.com. “The wall corners may get chipped, the wooden floor may receive scratches and even the doors can get hit resulting in marks and dents all over them. Fortunately, there are several ways to avoid the perils of the moving process if you want to protect the house for the move.”
The guide starts by recommending essential supplies; these include medium to large boxes and a boxcutter, packing tape, paper, and blankets, and corner guards. When it comes to moving equipment, Movers.com believes moving dollies are the most essential piece of equipment, as they make moving heavy objects easier, while protecting the floors from scratches.
The moving specialists also recommend laying down a cardboard walkway to protect floors from scratches and other damage. For carpets, Movers.com suggests using adhesive carpet runners, packing blankets, or drop cloths. To protect walls and corners in high-traffic areas, the guide advises using cardboard boxes, blankets, and corner guards.
For those looking for professional moving services, Movers.com – with its network of over 700 moving companies – can also provide up to seven moving estimates, at no cost.
