Tools for Moving

When handling a move, you will need all kinds of help, whether from a professional moving company or friends and family. You will also need a long list of tools to complete the job. The tools you might need come down to what you need to move, how big the furniture is, how many moving boxes are there, and what items are too big or heavy to carry on your own. 

Copperstate Moving has many years of experience, and we created a list of tools to make your move easier.

Things Needed for Moving

Some moving tools and equipment can be bigger pieces of equipment, while others are supplies meant to make your day a little more stress-free:

  • Dolly carts – Also known as hand carts or hand trucks, these are great for moving multiple boxes simultaneously. It’s as simple as stacking the heaviest box at the bottom to the lightest at the top. With the weight stacked evenly, just tilt the cart back onto its wheels, and you’re on your way! 
  • 4-Wheel hand carts – When something bigger is needed, these waist-high flat carts are great for bigger and heavier items. These carts are available for purchase or rent from local moving companies or hardware stores.    
  • Ramps – Moving over door sills and curbsides can be added obstacles on move day. Getting ramps can smooth the door sills and make it easier to drag or wheel carts and furniture across, making dealing with curbs smoother and easier.  
  • Floor sliders – These small, puck-shaped disks are perfect for when you need to move heavier pieces of furniture. Simply place one slider under each leg of the furniture, and the furniture will glide easier, saving your back, legs, and patience!
