Jul 24, 2023

Find out how to protect your house when you move, so you don’t scratch up your new place or lose your damage deposit. This easy guide from explains it all – it can even help you save money if you hire professionals.

Whether you're moving apartments, houses, condos, or even rooms - it's crucial that you do so safely, without hurting yourself, your furniture, or the building around you.

Unfortunately, if you've ever moved houses before, you know that our furniture isn't really designed with that in mind... or our houses.

Never fear though, is here!

Okay, that's super cheesy, but also, they're super helpful when it comes to this kind of stuff, and I have to admit, I use their website a lot.

A new guide I just found from them came in really handy when I had to protect my floors, and I wasn't sure how - more than that though, it also shows how to protect every other part of the house, the movers, and the furniture.

If that's what you came here for, just click here to read their full, free guide.

What I learned is that there are two primary options for protecting your stuff, an easy way and a not-too-hard way.

The not-too-hard way involves a lot of DIY work, but it's not too tricky if you have the time and supplies. Nothing too expensive, mind you, but you'll need a good supply of cardboard, tape, drop cloths, corner guards... you know what, just check out the full guide for the complete list.

One thing you'll likely notice right away is that while the supplies for protecting your house are easy to come by and inexpensive, the same is not necessarily true about the equipment required to move furniture and heavy items safely. The guide suggests four moving tools, a dolly, straps, sliders, and blankets, which you may have to borrow, rent, or purchase if you have a significant number of heavy, large, or awkward items.

Once you've got the goods, the guide explains how to protect various surfaces by cutting boxes to fit over heavily trafficked floors or wrapping stair banisters in furniture pads. The guide also suggests that these methods can be modified for outdoor use to protect pathways or to protect your furniture from muddy conditions.

I know, I know, all this sounds like a lot - but guess what? You don't even need to read the guide, to be honest. They put the whole thing, everything you need to know, into a short video - so you can see how it all works. It's right at the top of the guide, so just click here to watch that instead.

Now if you've read the guide, or watched the video, and decided that, "Whoah, that's way too much work," I totally understand. Sometimes, especially when the stakes are high (or in this case, so low they might scratch up the floor) it's just better to hire a professional.

If that's more your style, and you're wondering how can help, well, I'm happy to explain.

All you have to do is look for the big green button on their website that says "Get Quotes" and click it... Well, okay, maybe that's not "all you have to do," but it's pretty close.

That will open up a simple form where you can fill in some basic details about your move, like where from, to, and how much stuff you've got. They'll send that information off to some of the best local professionals, and you'll get back 7 free, no-obligation quotes.

Heck, even if you're planning on moving it all yourself - it might be worth getting the 7 free quotes just to see how much it would cost you. Maybe you'll decide to hire a professional if you see the right price, and if not, you'll know just how much money you saved by doing it yourself.

That's your call though. Me, I just want to point you in the right direction.

So if you're looking for your free estimates, just click here and look for the big green "Get Quotes" button.
