What are Moving Blankets?


Moving Blankets can are known around the moving industry as Moving Pads, Furniture Pads, or even Warehouse Blankets. One of the main purposes of moving blankets is to protect sensitive surfaces from scratches or damage. There is nothing worse than purchasing furniture before a move only to arrive at the new destination to see it has become damaged during transportation. Moving Blankets were created in order to attempt to help eliminate all of the possible damage such as a sharp edge rubbing against a wooden table ruining the table.

Over the last decade, Moving Blankets have become a core part of all professional movers and professional truckers for preventing damage. Saving these companies thousands of dollars in potential damaged product claims and ruining potential long-term relationships. Moving Blankets utilize thick layers of heavy-duty fabric, as well as a woven s pattern stitching design that strengthens the blankets from any potential damage that could occur. Although Moving Blankets have become a key player inside of the professional transportation industries they can also play a huge role in your first-time moves as well.

The amount of protection that Moving Blankets can offer is determined based off of the weight of the moving blankets. Traditionally speaking the more weight of the blankets the higher the level of protection or the lighter in weight the less protection is offered. Lightweight Moving Blankets offer great protection but may last a more limited time compared to our heaviest duty moving blankets that utilize more fabric and stitching. Moving Blankets offer great protection as well as offering a great way to keep valuables going into storage protected and free of dust.

Moving Straps

Due to there being so many different methods of moving such as in the back of a pickup truck, trailer, container, or even by a professional tractor trailer we have a wide variety of different straps to fit your application needs.

4 Wheel Dollies


4 Wheel Dollies can also be called Moving Dollies and are a great way to move large heavier or awkwardly shaped valuables. They can have either rubber or carpeted ends of the dollies to better fit your moving application needs. These dollies are great for moving professionals or just to keep around the house to make moving those heavier items easier. 4 Wheel Dolly carts are perfect for moving heavy loads such as a dishwasher a short or a far distance. Part of the success behind the 4 wheel dollies is by providing 4 wheels that provide great balance and weight distribution.

Remember if you plan on placing any wooden surfaces on the 4 wheel dolly you should cover these surfaces by using a moving blanket to help prevent against any potential scratches that could potentially occur.4 Wheel Dollies are made from strong and yet durable wooden frames that have solid wheels. This helps carry the carrying capacity upwards of 600 to 800 pounds safely depending on the selection of the cart. Dollies that are carpeted or rubber capped to help damage the surfaces placed on the carts, however, we recommend with the use of Moving Blankets as well.

The Wheels on the 4 Wheel Dollies are great because the help utilizes the swivel wheels design which can help make maneuverability a breeze by offering multidirectional and angles that traditionally 2 wheel dollies simply can’t offer you. You can push, pull, or even slide in nearly every direction to get the perfect angle that you need to move your cargo for even the heaviest of loads.

Appliance Hand Trucks


Appliance Trucks can also be known as Appliance Hand Trucks or Hand Trucks and are a great way to move large or heavier items such as a refrigerator, washer, dryer, or table. They can also be used to help move moving boxes as well as other loads quicker than normally carrying them. Part of the reason they are so widely used is they are faster to move heavier items but the main and most important reason they are much safer to use.

Some of the perks to using a 2 wheel dolly hand truck compared to the traditional popular 4 wheel dolly is the bonus of being able to go over curbs or stairs that you may need to go up or down depending on the load. Another great feature to using these 2 wheel dollies over the 4 wheel dollies is you are able to use a hand truck cover. What is a hand truck cover? A hand truck cover uses our great moving blanket design and fabric to create a layer between the dolly and the load.

This helps to prevent tiny or even in some cases deep scratches from occurring saving you or your clients from damage would add up financially quickly.
