What is the best way to carefully transport big and heavy furniture?
The most important thing to do when lifting heavy objects is to lift with your legs! Get a sense of how heavy the object is first and get others to help you if needed. Furniture pieces like sofas and bed frames can be very heavy, so ask for help to carry it so you don’t damage it or your body! It’s important to avoid overly curling your back, and always engage your core muscles to reduce the risk of a back injury.
Another good tip is to strap these items if necessary. Strapping furniture to the wall ensures that it doesn’t move around and stays where you placed it. This also guarantees big items don’t tip over on anyone!
