Get The Right Tools For Moving Home



If you want to do a good job, you will need to bring the right tools, and moving home is no exception. Moving companies will bring a supply of things for moving your possessions into their truck, and protecting them during transit. But that doesn't mean you can't move home yourself and do a great job. Here's a list of some indispensable tools for moving home, thanks to About.com:

  1. A good dolly is worth its weight in gold for moving your possessions around, and saving you a lot of effort in the process. There are two kinds of dollies: a flatbed dolly for moving heavy furniture, and a utility dolly for moving stacks of smaller objects.
  2. Softeners, like pads and moving blankets, will protect your precious items from getting damaged while you move them.
  3. Straps and ropes will secure your possessions, keeping them in place during transit. The more stable and secure your possessions, the less damage will occur.
  4. Packing tape is vital for closing cardboard boxes, as well as scissors.
  5. A stair roller might seem like a bit too much, but if you need to carry items down stairs, this will work wonders for you.
With a couple of dollies, a few pads and moving blankets, good straps, packing tape, and a stair roller, your move will go off without a hitch.
