Moving damages are common. Broken glasses, scratched furniture, and damaged electronics are just some of the damages moving can cause. Luckily, there are steps you can take to minimize damage to your belongings. Follow these steps to ensure that your items are protected:
Take Furniture Apart
Don’t try to carry entire pieces of furniture if you can take them apart. By taking your furniture apart you reduce the chances of it being dropped, scratching a wall, or getting stuck. Take apart bed frames, tables, chairs, and any other large furniture. Moving these items piece by piece is safer for your furniture and you.
Ask Others for Help
Moving is a huge task. If you have a lot of stuff don’t try to move alone. Enlist your friends, family, and a professional moving company to help you move your belongings. If you try to move all of your stuff by yourself you could risk injury to yourself and damage to your property. Having others lend a hand can shorten the amount of time that your things sit outside in a truck or on a curb. There, they can be vulnerable to theft or the weather. The faster and more efficiently you can move the better. That’s why you should ask for help instead of choosing to move alone.
Utilize Pulley Systems
Chances are some of your furniture is too large for you to move up a set of stairs. Pulley systems can help you safely lift large items without damaging them. This is the safest way to transport your belongings without damage.
This is a simple item that you will not want to forget. Protect your breakable items with moving blankets. Don’t leave your things vulnerable to scratches or any other damage caused by leaving them exposed to the weather. It’s easier to throw a moving blanket over your couch than it is to replace it after it’s damaged. Taking the extra time to protect your things will save you headaches down the line.

Moving requires a significant amount of preparation and planning. Part of that includes making sure that you have the right supplies to make your move as painless as possible.
