Moving Equipment: Items to protect your home and furniture

Removing the door is a good idea when bringing furniture into the home.

Removing the door is a good idea when bringing furniture into the home.

The moving process sometimes has hurdles that need to be overcome or avoided completely. When your moving company delivers your belongings to your new residence, it is very important to know that by rushing the process, you can damage your home and furniture. However, taking proper precautions with moving equipment will allow you to ensure that everything enters the home without any issues.

One of the most vulnerable areas of your home when moving is your doorways. Remember, they aren't made of steel, and even the most careful people can scratch, scuff or even break doorways when moving furniture inside. However, if you use door jamb covers, you will be able to better protect these entryways from damage.

In addition, taking the door off while moving the furniture in will help prevent the door or hinges from being damaged, as it is harder to protect these. Taping over the door's hinges may also help you move furniture inside more easily. This is due to the hinges' ability to cut, dent or damage items as they enter the home. Additionally, you could hurt yourself getting scratched by these, as well.

Another important step could be to get covers for your furniture. Due to the difficulty of moving large couches and beds into the house, there is an increased chance that these could be damaged. It is expensive and difficult to repair torn furniture, and the result may not be what you wanted. Instead, taking blankets or drop cloths from your home and wrapping furniture in them will allow for you to bring them in without worry. Knowing that you are protecting your items will make the entire process less stressful.
