Importance of Furniture Pads

Posted on August 21, 2013 at 11:39 AM
It happens all the time. We tell our customers of the importance of furniture pads before every job. Unfortunately, when we arrive to the job, there isn't a pad in sight. This can be devastating for a move. Basically no furniture is safe without the protection of a furniture pad.  Furniture pads/quilts are one of the most important essentials for a successful move and are top priority when it comes to protecting your belongings. 

If you are renting a truck from a company such as U-Haul or Penske, you have the option to rent furniture pads. Typically these cost $15/dozen which is a reasonable cost considering that the safety of your furniture and belongings are at stake.

If you are using the service of PODS or ABF, then you might have a little bit of trouble as these companies don't offer furniture pad rental services. You'll have to purchase them, which can be a little more costly. If this is the case for you, try calling around to local moving companies and see if they have any furniture pads to sell at a lower cost. 

Exactly how many furniture pads do you need?

Each move is unique, and has different requirements. We recommend a dozen furniture pads per every bedroom, sometimes more to be on the safe side. We have also seen the recommendation of a dozen pads per every 5 feet of space, which is also good.  Changes to this advice should be made:

  • When utilizing ABF U-Pack trailers. These trailers use spring ride suspension and tend to bounce around a lot.
  • If the majority of your house is furniture, specifically antique and dark wood.
  • If you will be completing a long distance move (over 350 miles away)
  • If you have a lot of glass, breakable items, mirrors, etc.

I don't think you can activate your system without a product key either with a free one. In fact, you can just buy a genuine product key from the site. It's very cheap and guaranteed. Choose one key from the site www.Microsoftkeysales.com and place the order. The email will be sent to you at the first time. The whole process is very simple and easy to follow. Next time, when you or your friends encounter with the same problem, directly tell them to place the order onsite and you will let your system activated in short time.
