hand trucks - Do You Own A Furniture Dolly?

Have you ever tried moving without a furniture dolly? It is the worst, and there is no ands, ifs, or buts about it. I remember the first time I moved from my home. I was moving across town to my own apartment near city center, and I couldn’t have been more ecstatic. I guess in all the excitement I didn’t realize I should do some research on tips for moving. I had recruited a few friends—with the help of some pizza and beer—and when the day came to move we were all pumped to begin work. By the time we got my mattress and bedframe to the truck we were tired. We had no tools, and there were only four of us. We took a break for a bit and got back at it. We need two of my dressers to the truck, but we still had a desk and a bunch of other miscellaneous stuff. As the sun began to set we realized we were not going to finish in one day. I had to rent the truck another day, and ask my friends begrudgingly to help again. At the end of the move my friend asked me why I didn’t spring for a furniture dolly, and I replied, “a furniture what?” He pulled up some images on his phone, and from then on I knew that I would never move again without the help of a furniture dolly or two.

Of course, because there are no wheels, it requires more for then a furniture dolly, but by no means does that mean it is hard to push or pull. If you have carpeting moving pads might not be the best way to go, but on hard surfaces they slide rather well: a furniture dolly doesn’t work as well on carpeting as well. You can pick up moving pads cheap to help you move, and when you are done you can roll them up and shove them in the closet. Let’s say you want to rearrange some furniture; go grab your moving pads and make the job easier for yourself.
