Whether you’re move is big or small, you can rest assured that you will have several large pieces to move. Some include things such as refrigerators, stoves, or large pieces of furniture. Trying to move these pieces on your own can be difficult because of the weight and bulkiness of the pieces. For this reason, many people decide to hire professional Dallas movers in order to experience a stress free move. Below are a couple of tips that Monarca Movers recommends if you will be moving these things on your own.

1. Use moving supplies.
When Dallas movers move these big pieces of furniture, they use special moving supplies such as dollies, blankets, and shrink wrap. For large things that have drawers, Dallas movers put shrink wrap around the piece so that the drawers do not slip out and fall on top of you. Moreover, Dallas moving companies always come equipped with blankets in order to protect furniture from getting scratched. Things like dollies or gondolas are put underneath the heavy pieces of furniture since it is always easier to roll this big piece as opposed to carrying it. The trick with these tools, however, is that it requires a lot of muscle and strength in order to be able to get the piece on the dollies or gondolas in the first place. Even though the Dallas movers may be able to do it easily, it is going to be a lot more difficult for someone that is not used to the hard labor such as the Dallas movers.

2. Clear any obstructions.
When Dallas moving services providers are moving large objects, they ask the customers to remove any obstructions in order to prevent any accidents. When you are moving large pieces on your own, you cannot easily move pieces out of the way. If the piece is too large, then you will also have to take down the doors in order to try and get the piece out. Trying to get something that is too big through a small doorway will only get the piece of furniture all scratched up and damaged. When you hire a Dallas moving company, they will most likely measure the large piece and the size of the doorway it will go out off. If the door is big enough for the piece you are moving, then there is no use in removing the doorway. In the end, you may have taken every precaution that was possible, but there is always the chance of damaging your furniture since you are not a professional Dallas mover.
