Lots of people use our disposal bin rental Brampton services for getting rid of old furniture. We’ve put together a list of tips for moving those old chairs and dressers. Making sure our clients stay safe is a priority for Essential Disposal Services.
Get the Right Tools
Some people just jump in and start moving furniture around, but that’s not always the right way to go. Getting the right tool for any job makes it easier and safer. If you’re carrying an old sofa out to be taken away, we suggest moving and lifting straps.
These leave your hands free and take the weight off your back at the same time.
Get the Right Dolly
Dollies are a great way to move awkward items like a washer or dryer. You can either buy them or rent them from your local moving company or big-box home renovation store. As you might imagine, there are several different types to choose from.
The furniture dolly is quite often the perfect choice if you’re carrying something up to 1000 pounds. These are flat platforms that have four wheels.
Moving A Couch?
Then there’s the pushcart dolly that’s a lot like the furniture dolly with a handle. If you’re going to use one of these to move something like a couch, make sure it’s balanced properly. These generally cost a little bit more than a furniture dolly.
The most common type is called a hand truck. This type of dolly is popular because it’s very versatile. All you need to do is tilt it upwards and then slide what you need to carry under. Tilting the dolly back lets you move that old furniture out to your
disposal bin rental Brampton.
Take the Legs Off
Got narrow doorways in your house? Then taking the legs off that old sofa before you try and move it might be what you need to do. Remember that you can also tilt chairs up into an L position and hook them through doorways.
Don’t forget to get the right kind of protective equipment like heavy duty work gloves. Otherwise, it’s easy to get some nasty cuts when you’re moving furniture.
