Don’t Start Your Move Without These Important Tools

Moving is stressful enough on its own, don’t make it harder than it has to be. Here are some essential tools and items you can use to make the moving process easier and keep your items safer. 


The dolly is a moving centerpiece. Moving heavy objects without a dolly is a request for pain and suffering. Trying to lift and move heavy objects with brute force strength is both difficult and dangerous. A dolly is utterly essential when moving heavy objects. There are two types of dollies that are frequently used in moving. The most commonly seen type of dolly is called a utility dolly. These are the upright dollies with two wheels. These can not only be used to move heavy objects like appliances, but heavy boxes can be stacked and moved together, saving time and saving your back. Furniture dollies are flat, with four wheels. These are best for moving big, awkward items that can’t be moved with a utility dolly.

Moving Pads and Blankets

Overlooked, but incredibly useful, moving blankets are excellent moving tools for packing and securing. Moving blankets are specifically designed to protect furniture and other valuable or fragile items. They are heavily padded and a great option for keeping your furniture from banging around and getting scratches. They can also be used to wrap up things like glass and mirrors that could easily be broken. 

Straps and Ties

No matter how well you pack your items, if they are not properly secured, they can still be damaged during the moving process. Straps and ropes are a great way to keep your items in place. They can also help you secure your items to a dolly while moving them in and out of the truck. Like dollies, moving straps can also be used for carrying heavy objects with more security than moving by hand alone.

Packing Tape and Scissors

Throughout the moving process, you will want to keep packing tape and scissors with you. These simple moving tools never cease to come in handy. Packing tape can be used for keeping moving blankets tight around your valuables, reinforcing boxes, keeping doors and drawers closed, and even keeping small items like screws secured to your items. If you don’t keep tape and scissors on you, chances are you’re going to regret it at some point. Make sure you use high-quality packing tape to avoid any accidents!
