Tips to Prevent Injuries While Moving

Moving is one of the most stressful things you can do. It can become a danger faster than you might expect. You'll want to attempt that 50-pound box down a few flights of stairs and before you know it, the box will beat you to the bottom. You never want to lift more than your capabilities. You know your body and its limits better than anyone else. Never rush when you are moving, it is a recipe for disaster.

Proper Equipment

Using the proper tools for the job will save you time and injuries down the road. In the moving industry, they have dollies. These pieces of equipment make moving your items from your house to the moving truck a whole lot easier. A dolly can be typically rented by your local moving company or hardware store. I would also suggest investing in some moving pads, tape, and boxes. This will create less damage to your furniture and flooring. Nobody wants a scratched-up new house.

Making Sure The Path is Clear

With safety being the top priority, keeping a clear path in and out of your house is crucial in the moving process. Always clear your walkways before moving furniture and items in and out of your house. Similar to inside the house, the outside path must be clear as well. Keep your driveway clear of all cars, toys, bikes, garden hoses, etc. You do not want someone to trip and get injured. The last thing you want is for yourself or someone else to trip over something while moving a heavy piece of furniture and get injured.

Hire a Professional

Hiring a professional could be what you need to save time, stress, and injuries. A professional moving company will be more efficient at handling bulky items such as furniture or heavy boxes during your move and will be able to transfer your belongings to the truck and into your new home, apartment, or condo. When hiring a moving company, it is a much safer moving process. Experience does matter when it comes to moving.

Using Your Judgment

Handling furniture is a physically demanding task, even with the appropriate tools. This is why using your judgment matters so much. You're saving yourself time, costly mistakes, and injuries in the long run. Do not attempt to move things you think twice about being able to properly transport. If you need more explanation and safety guidelines the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has many.
