When preparing for a move, most people set a date, contact a moving company in Austin, and buy moving resources. Boxes, tape, and packing paper are usually near the top of the list, then followed by a roll of bubble wrap that the youngsters will try to take away to jump on. Even though these must-have supplies are important, making certain you have got moving blankets on hand will also help make your moving day to run smoothly.

Moving blankets are often the key to making certain your bedroom furniture, bookcases, and also the cherished bronze sculpture of your cat, Garfield, arrive safely at their new residence. Consider them being the pals that go the extra mile with your home furnishings, keeping your belongings shielded from the damage which commonly takes place on moving day. Your local moving company in Austin could certainly figure out how many blankets you really need to protect your large items.

When Should I Use Moving Blankets?

Professional movers in Austin use moving blankets with each and every moving job, and you should as well. Utilize moving blankets to cover your most valuable things and keep them safe, secure, and clean while they're being moved. Because these padded cloths are designed to absorb shock, moving blankets could very well stop your favorite coffee table or dining room chairs from getting harmed in the course of transit.

Moving blankets could also be used to cover your corners, banisters, as well as entryways throughout a move. Wrap damage-prone locations in your residence with moving blankets to supply a layer of protection as household furniture along with other things are being moved.

How Ought I Utilize Them?

Furniture blankets are normally 6 or 7 feet each side and contain various layers of filler materials (cotton, polyester, and nylon) stitched together like a bedspread. Moving blankets are generally two-sided, often having a lighter-colored side along with a more dark side. Use the lighter side of the blanket to wrap your items that will need added protection over the move. The darker side should face out.

If traveling a decent distance, insert extra moving blankets in the spaces between boxes and household furniture to stop moving of belongings within the moving truck. For additional safeguards, put plastic over your belongings should it be raining throughout your move, as moving blankets are not waterproof.

Are Moving Blankets Worth It?
