Moving does not have to be a stressful event if you utilize the right tools. With these tools, you can pack your heavy appliances and awkward pieces of furniture easily, and with much less risk of injury to yourself or your belongings. When you rent a moving truck from 5 Star Truck Rental, you can also rent the following tools to make your move across town or across the country both safe and easy.

Tools to Help with Your Move

Appliance Dolly

Save your tired muscles for unpacking all those boxes by utilizing an appliance dolly to move heavy appliances. This tool is very beneficial for moving items such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, ovens, and stoves. It includes secure straps which keep the item in place while transporting it from your home to the moving truck, and from the truck into your new home. A dolly also makes it much easier to move appliances up and down stairs if, for example, you need to set up a washer and dryer in the basement.

Hand Truck

Hand trucks cannot move extremely heavy or large items like an appliance dolly can, but they are very helpful for moving large boxes or stacks of smaller boxes. They are able to support a few hundred pounds at a time, thus help to save your back and knees from lifting and moving all that weight yourself.

Moving/Furniture Pads

There’s nothing more disappointing than arriving at your new home or new office, unloading the moving truck, and finding scuff marks on your unprotected furniture. Keep your furniture safe from scratches, dents, and other damage while moving your belongings from one place to another. Lay the pads on top of the furniture, such as a dining room table or office desk, to prevent boxes from scuffing the top layer. Wrap a pad around smaller, valuable pieces to protect them on all sides.

Tie Downs & Straps

In a large moving truck, boxes, furniture, and appliances move around quite a bit, especially when driving across state or across country. Keep everything secure with tie downs and straps. You can also use tie downs and straps when moving large pieces of furniture or equipment a short distance in the back of an open truck.
