7 Moving Hacks by Moving Help®

Make moving day easier when you try one of Moving Help’s moving hacks! 

Feel confident during your move when you protect your belongings and save some time in the process. 

  1. Stop the Lock – Don’t get locked out! Keep doors unlocked by wrapping a rubber band around each side of the door handle, covering the lock to keep it pushed in. This will allow you to freely exit and reenter your home. 
  2. Protect Your Floors – Moving large pieces of furniture can easily cause damage to your flooring. Try taping cardboard over carpet, hardwood, and stairs to create a layer of protection. 
  3. Easily Carry a Mattress – Lifting a mattress can sometimes seem impossible. Try laying down a sheet and placing your mattress on top of it allowing you to use the corners of the sheet as straps. 
  4. Secure Items on a Dolly – Stabilize your dolly by strapping bungee cords around any stacked items to secure them to the bars of the dolly. 
  5. Easily Move Heavy Items – Place heavy items on furniture pads to slide them across hard surfaces. The furniture pads will allow you to glid the furniture across your floor without causing any scratches. 
  6. Protect Your Washing Machine – When moving a top loading washing machine, place pillows or blankets inside to stabilize the agitator during transit and minimize the risk of damage.  
  7. Keep Your Freezer Clean – Make sure your freezer stays dry and mold-free during transit when you place a clean diaper or maxi pad inside. The diaper or maxi pad will absorb any remaining moisture, keeping your freezer nice and dry!
