Although moving blankets are one of the simplest and least expensive tools commonly used by professional crews, experts suggest that they are often overlooked by DIY movers. This new report explains several ways that amateurs can protect their belongings with moving pads, how to rent them for an upcoming move, and how to determine the number of moving pads they will require.
While many DIY movers will often try to replace moving pads with household items, the report explains why this is a poor choice. Unlike moving pads, which are thick, durable, and tear-resistant, the report explains that household blankets are often too thin, slippery, and easy to damage, to be effective as a protective wrapping.
Movers.com also highlights several other common alternatives, such as plastic wrap and bubble wrap, and explains how they can often cause more damage than good, particularly when wrapping leather or wooden furniture. It suggests that it is often more cost-effective and simpler to rent the required number of moving pads or to hire a professional moving crew.
Readers who may want to rent their own moving blankets for a DIY job can use a simple calculator included in the report to estimate the number of moving pads they may need, based on the amount of furniture and boxes they plan to move. These moving pads can often be rented at the same time as a moving truck, and some companies may offer bundled options.
Alternatively, readers who choose to hire a professional moving crew can use a simple tool included in the report to estimate the costs, using a pre-screened local expert. Clicking “Get Quotes” on the Movers.com website will take readers to an estimate request service, which provides up to 7 rate quotes from local professionals with no cost or obligation.
