Extreme caution must be taken when moving heavy items. Lifting incorrectly or lifting beyond your physical capacity can result in injury to your body. Hire a professional to move heavy furniture for you if you don’t know how to lift it or can’t move it on your own or with others. Additionally, you may injure yourself, damage your property, or injure other people. When moving heavy pieces of furniture, use caution and enlist the aid of a friend.

It is possible to pack and transport large items without causing harm to people or property by following these five simple guidelines.
1. Examine the furniture
To move a large piece of furniture, you must first inspect and assess it. This is true for anything from a sofa to a bed to a dining table to a bookshelf. Because each piece of furniture is unique and different, there is no standard procedure for moving it. What to look for:
• Inspect the area to determine if there is any damage. It is possible for furniture to fall apart during the local movers and packers process due to split wood, cracked casing, loose screws, or other damage.
• Identify a safe method of lifting the furniture that will not cause damage to the item being lifted. Is there a place where you can grab the furniture without having to dismantle it?
• Has the furniture been assembled in the proper manner? The incorrect assembly of furniture can result in damage to the furniture during the moving process.
• How should the furniture be positioned when it is at ease? The internal mechanisms of a grandfather’s clock, for example, will be damaged if it is placed on its back, side, or front.
2. THINK ABOUT DEMOLISHING THE FURNITURE
If the furniture can be safely dismantled, you could save a significant amount of time when moving it. Suppose a dining table has a top and legs that are detachable so that each piece can be moved independently of the other without having to transport the entire table to its new location. When dismantling, make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the proper tools. It is important to make sure that no damage is done to the item during the dismantling process, or else you may have difficulty reassembling it.
3. SAVE THE FURNITURE
Moving furniture should be done with care. Wrapping the item in foam or a material can help to keep it from getting scratched, dented, or scuffed. A piece of furniture may need to be wrapped in plastic or another water-resistant material if you’re moving it around in the rain. Check to see that the wrapping is applied correctly and does not come loose during transportation. In addition, avoid using excessively large wrapping materials that will make the furniture even heavier or more difficult to move.
4. APPLY SUITABLE TECHNIQUES AND EQUIPMENT
The proper technique and equipment must be used when lifting large pieces of furniture. If you’re lifting heavy furniture, make sure to keep your back straight and your balance steady, and lift it gradually. Try not to rush the process or lift more than you are capable of. Back strain is a painful and dangerous condition. You should also use protective gloves and a platform trolley or stair climber to move the furniture without damaging it.
5. LOCK THE FURNITURE IN YOUR VEHICLE
If you are transporting furniture, make sure that it is properly secured in the vehicle. Without proper support, tall items can topple over. Consequently, the item, other nearby furniture, and the vehicle may all be damaged. Make certain that your vehicle is outfitted with adequate bracing infrastructure so that the furniture can be strapped and locked into place during transportation. A useful tip is to leave plenty of space and clearance around furniture objects because movement during transit can cause furniture items to wobble and rub against other items, resulting in damage.Sam Movers N Packers can help you move heavy furniture safely.
