  1. While we do recommend that a professional handle the heavy furniture to avoid injuries, here are some tips to keep in mind when moving heavy furniture to avoid scratching the floor.

    • You can drag your furniture with large pieces of flattened cardboard.
    • Moving straps and moving dollies are tools that can be purchased or rented to lift heavy furniture.
    • You can carry tall items at an angle with two people holding both edges. 
    • Moving pads and large elastic bands can be used to tie and move heavy furniture.
    • You should remove any items inside the furniture so it can be easily passed through doors.
