One of the worst nightmares you could ever live through is to move into your beautiful new home and find your furniture looking like the pieces have been through a storm! You hold your head and almost scream when you realize that all you needed to do was use furniture pads.
Of the moving accessories and supplies, furniture pads are also commonly called moving blankets and they simply do just that. They blanket your furniture during transit.
Sofa pads, table pads and other furniture pads cover, protect and cushion the vulnerable angels of your furniture against abrasion during the move. You cannot guarantee that the move will take you through smooth roads. So, these pads come in handy to protect your items even when going along bumpy roads. The idea is that even if the furniture knocks together, the pads take the brunt of the knock and keep the pieces of furniture unharmed.
There are however larger furniture blankets that some movers choose to use. These look more like quilted covers for your furniture. These quilts protect the pieces against dust and dirt to a great extent. If you are packing on your own however, then a packing material store will have furniture pads for you to buy. Some can be pasted on to the pieces of furniture. Rest assured, they do come off without leaving a mark. It’s always a good idea to use more pads than required. It is always better to be safe than sorry. It is also possible to purchase furniture blankets but make sure you measure your furniture properly, prior to buying the blankets.
