Moving Blankets

Moving Blankets are an important part of moving your belongings. They help protect your furniture and other valuables while being shipped. Moving blankets are also very important when moving across country. Whether you decide to move yourself or to have a company move you across country you need to use moving blankets to keep your belongings safe and protected.

There are several types of moving smb2_smallblankets:

  • Economy blankets ( aka furniture pads) have nonwoven fabric on each side. This Nonwoven fabric is quite soft but not very durable. Furniture moving pads are an excellent choice for putting furniture in storage or for packing blankets for overseas shipping if you don’t expect to see blankets again.
  • Green moving blankets, similiar in weight to Economy or Furniture pads, however, the outer fabric is woven polyester on each side. Polyester has great durability than nonwoven fabric.
  • Professional grade moving blankets are sometimes called “Multicolor moving blankets.” They combine advantages of soft fabric on one side and durable woven fabric on the reverse side.
  • Some consumers favor the Deluxe grade moving blanket. It has one side light blue and the other dark blue, a useful feature. Which allows you to always know what side will be touching the furniture (and clean) and what side is the outside.
  • Premium grade moving blankets are naturally heavier than others. At a respectable weight of almost 7 pounds per blanket they provide both protection and durability.
  • Cotton moving blankets are at the top of the heap. They are very nice and very heavy blankets. Outside cotton is soft, not rough and scratchy like cheaper blankets. They do not slide off the furniture easily.

For moving across country I would suggest using heavy duty moving blankets. Deluxe grade, professional grade, and premium grade moving blankets are the best to use for cross country moving. Moving blankets can really make a difference when it comes to moving your belongings long distances such as across country.
