5 Tips for Protecting Your Home During a Move

Moving to a new home can be an exciting adventure, but it also comes with its fair share of challenges. Something that often goes overlooked during this hectic time is the safety of your home and precious belongings during the transition. Here at Meathead Movers, we understand the significance of protecting what you hold dear. Preparation is key in the moving world, but it may feel impossible to know where to begin.

That’s why prioritizing protection is crucial. By implementing these strategies and utilizing the right supplies, you can safeguard your home and belongings from potential damage.

Key tips include:

  1. Floor protection. Preserving the integrity of your floors is essential, regardless of the surface type. Using floor protection materials will safeguard your carpets, hardwood, or tile floors from all kinds of damage. 
  2. Banister and door protection. Certain features, such as banisters and doors, are susceptible to accidental bumps and scratches during your move. Applying protective coverings prevents unnecessary damage and preserves the beauty of your home. 
  3. Utilize mattress bags. Shield your mattresses from dust, dirt, and potential tears. This ensures that your mattresses arrive at your new home in pristine condition. 
  4. TV boxes. Televisions are fragile and require careful handling during transportation. Utilizing TV boxes provides an extra layer of protection, preventing unfortunate accidents that may damage your TV. 
  5. Hire professionals. While you can take various steps to protect your own home during a move, enlisting the help of professional movers can take these precautions a step further, all while taking the load off of you.
