Moving Supplies – How To Move Furniture Without Damage

Packing up all those moving boxes with your prized possessions isn’t easy. But moving your furniture poses a different set of challenges. While you aren’t likely to actually break your sofa or kitchen table in two, these items can be easily damaged in transit. Surfaces can be scratched or torn by the edges of other items. And in the damp Irish climate, it is important to protect upholstered items from the rain and damp. When you order your home moving kit, you can include some special packing materials in addition to your packing boxes for moving, to keep your furniture safe.

Most home moving kits include boxes, as well as moving supplies such as labels and bubble wrap for smaller items such as dishes. But your couch and armchairs need protection too. Buska supplies special bags for your three-seater or four-seater couch, armchairs and mattresses. Mattresses are a particularly awkward item to move, and they do not resist water well. Exposing your mattress to rain, drizzle, snow and the like can be the beginning of the end. It can develop mildew, which is a threat to your health. It’s dangerous enough for adults, let alone for children. Including moving bags for mattresses in your home moving kit can save your money and, most importantly, your health. Buska supplies moving bags for all mattress sizes – single, double/ king and supersize king.

Boxes for Moving House & Moving Supplies

Tables, wardrobes, dressers and chests of drawers are heavy, awkward things to move. It’s very easy for them to be scratched or dinged while you are manoeuvring them down the stairs, through doorways and around corners.

But you can add transit blankets to your home moving kit to protect them. Cover them and secure the transit blanket before you move them from their location in the house you are leaving to ensure they arrive in your new home in good shape. Whatever type of wooden furniture you are moving, a transit blanket is ideal for anything too large to fit into your boxes for moving house.

Transit blankets can also be used to protect electronic items that don’t fit into moving boxes. A large television screen is a large investment worth protecting. Wrapping a transit blanket around it and securing the blanket so it does not fall off along the way can keep your television safe. These blankets are also suitable for appliances such as washers, dryers, fridge freezers and cookers. Today’s ceramic top cookers are particularly vulnerable to scratches during a move, but any appliance can suffer a dent or scratch if it isn’t protected.

Your furniture is a big investment, and moving house is expensive enough without having to replace a couch, mattress or table. Including moving supplies such as furniture bags and transit blankets when you are placing your order is the best way to protect your belongings as you get them to your new home.
