How to Move Heavy Furniture

Overestimating your strength can not only make you look foolish, but can cause serious life-altering injuries. You may not be in re-incarnation of Hulk, but with these proper tips, you can impress any friends during your “move in party.”

1)Know your limitations
Start the lift as close to the object as possible. Kneel on the floor. Never lift from a standing position or with your knees locked. Lifting from a standing position can cause severe back injury but it can also cause you to pass out from heavy strain.

2)Be sure to breathe
Holding your breath in combination with straining to lift can cause you to lose consciousness. This can cause further injuries to yourself and the others that are helping you carry a piece of furniture.

3)Use those Arm & Leg Muscles
Before you stand, rest the object on your knee. You will use this knee as your primary weight-bearing. Utilize your arm and leg muscles rather than completely lifting with your back.

4)Baby Steps
As you are walking with your piece of furniture, make sure there are no items in your way that may cause you to trip. Don’t be in a hurry! Taking smaller steps towards your end goal will give you the best stability.

5)The End Goal
To put the item back down, make sure to squat rather than bending at the waist or kneeling.
