Moving all of the items in your home that you’ve collected throughout the years and then moving those items to an entirely new place is an overwhelming and stressful process. On top of that, moving large pieces of furniture, glass belongings and other dangerous items aren’t the safest of tasks, either.

Nobody wants to walk away from a move with physical injuries, especially since moving to a new location can be such an exciting and new experience! In this blog post, we’ll provide you with some safety tips to keep in mind when moving.

For any of your residential moving needs in Columbus, let our team of professional movers at Helping Hands Moving Service assist you with your move.

Continue reading below for some of the basic safety tips you should keep in mind during your move.

Disassemble All Of Your Furniture Pieces

First things first: disassemble any furniture pieces that you can. Sure, this seems super inconvenient at first, and you may be tempted to keep all of your furniture pieces as they are, but disassembling your furniture is the best practice for safety.

Large furniture items, such as couches and king-sized mattresses, are hard to fit through doorways or up and down stairways (PIVOT! — “Friends” references, anyone?). The harder you make moving these items, the more likely you are to walk away with an injury at the end of your move.

Don’t Move Solo

Again, for the purpose of safety, never move alone. Whether you rally up your friends for some help or you hire a professional moving company that offers residential moving services, the likeliness of you injuring yourself when trying to move a large dresser by yourself is high.

Wear The Right Clothing And Footwear

Lastly, you don’t want to bust out your flimsy flip-flops and your most restrictive pair of jeans on moving day. You want comfortable clothing that can move freely, as well as closed-toe shoes that have a good grip. Avoid wearing too baggy of clothing, though, as this could get caught on pieces of furniture or doorknobs as you’re moving.
