How do I move heavy furniture downstairs by myself?

  1. We recommend that heavy furniture be handled by a professional mover but if you are thinking of moving your furniture downstairs by yourself here are some tips. A safe way of moving heavy furniture downstairs by yourself is by using moving dollies. They are useful if you’re moving extra heavy items like appliances. They also allow you to easily move heavy loads up and down stairs and curbs. You can buy or rent dollies online or at hardware stores. One word of caution though; avoid using a dolly with items that are higher than your chest-level.
