Furniture And Appliance Lifting Straps For Moving
As a woman, moving furniture or appliances almost always involves my husband. Although we have moved our share of large, bulky items, I always fear I can't carry my part of the load and one of us will end up down in our back. Then several months ago I went to help my friend pack for moving to her new house and she had something that I had never used before, "Furniture and Appliance ." Lifting Straps
I was amazed but we (two women) were able to move her completely into her new house. I would have bet money we could not move that washer and dryer but with the lifting straps, it was so easy. I later found out this revolutionary invention was already being used by countless numbers of professional movers and delivery persons.
Moving furniture and appliances have long been the cause of many injuries for both the professional mover, delivery persons and individuals alike. However with the use of furniture and appliance lifting straps, it has become easier than ever to move those large, awkward and heavy items. These straps are sweeping the country among professional moving companies and delivery persons.
These revolutionary lifting straps use leverage principles that not only promote appropriate lifting techniques to nearly eliminate any strain or injury on the lower back. They are really simple to use and make it possible for these large items to be moved safely and securely.
To use the lifting straps you merely place the straps under the load being carried in a "x-cross" pattern, then squatting down with your hands firmly in place on the item being moved, you can easily stand up and start moving…it is really that easy!
With the use of these straps, two people can easily carry two loads up and down stairways as well as narrow door or hallways without injury to themselves or the items being moved. I guess the biggest downside is it does take two people to use these lifting straps. Here are some of the features of the furniture and appliance lifting straps:
- OSHA accepted
- 9'4" long
- Adjustable up to 48" to carry small, medium or large loads
- Safety orange color
- Constructed of durable polypropylene webbing

Benefits Of Moving Straps
- Weight of item being carried is reduced by 66%
- Creates handles for those awkward items
- Makes going up/down most stairs or truck ramps easy
- Great for small hallways and any tight turning radius
- Reduces the chance of damaging flooring
There are many benefits of using lifting straps for you next move no matter how small or large. Keeping a set of them in your garage will pay off more than once.
Although using a pair of lifting straps makes it easier to move furniture and appliances or any other large items, you should still use common sense. Always wear non-slip shoes, clear pathways prior to starting your move and remember your visibility can be impaired when moving large, bulky items.
Another good tip is to measure all doorways, hallways staircases or any tight areas you will be passing through with your large items. Use these tips and follow the instructions for properly using the lifting straps and your move should go very smooth!
