†††††††† -Wrap moving pads or blankets around the pieces to protect them during the move.
†††††††† -Moving a large piece to the doorway to get it out of the house is easier if you use a towel or a blanket underneath so that it slides easily on the floor.
†††††††† -Always use your legs to lift, not your back.† Squat and lift the piece, keeping your back straight and the furniture close to your body.
†††††††† -Use moving straps to lift heavy items with two people.† These are special straps that are designed to distribute weight evenly based on leverage which makes it easier on you and your back.
†††††††† -Lift furniture from its strongest point.
†††††††† -Remove smaller parts from furniture, such as drawers, to lighten your load.
