Packing and moving can be hard on your back. Lifting and moving furniture and other heavy items like moving boxes have the potential to hurt you if you forget to lift with your
legs. Moving straps are then one of the most important pieces you can have on hand to make moving day smooth and ultimately safe for you as well as your things.
Forearm Forklift moving straps are adjustable straps that help two people lift an oversized, heavy or difficult to move item. Often after you have protected your furniture and
mattresses in mattress covers or plastic stretch wrap, these items become difficult to grip and carry without destroying the plastic with gripped fingers. By slipping the Forearm
Forklift moving straps under the protected furniture keeps your efforts controlled and your back from unnecessary strain. These three inch wide lifting straps are adjustable to
the piece of furniture and rated to carry up to 700 pounds. Avoid scratching floors with dolly casters when using these lifting moving straps.
When securing drawers shut or moving blankets to furniture, packing tape simply won’t do as it may damage the surface below or won’t stick to the fabric of a moving blanket.
Securing moving blankets and drawers with plastic stretch wrap is an economical option that is easy to use and easy to remove. Another option is Rubber Mover Bands, oversized
rubber bands intended to wrap around furniture ranging from dining room chairs to entertainment centers. Each rubber mover bands are measured prior to being stretched and they
can stretch twice their length. Keep your furniture free of sticky residue and be nice to Mother Earth by reusing the bands as you go.
As you pack up the moving truck, moving pod or trailer, you’ll need to secure boxes and items as you go. If you’re filling up an open air trailer, the outside elements are an
obvious threat to shifting items or carrying them away. You’ll need to keep all the appliances and boxes from toppling out of the trailer with every turn and bump in the road.
Moving trucks and moving pods are not as obvious and securing items is often forgotten. Many people assume once they shut that door, the items inside are safe. But bumps in the
road are not just for trailers. Boxes full of fragile items that have perilously been stacked on the top may topple at a turn and all your hard work may be for waste. There are a
few options when considering tie downs straps. Use one ro a combination to hold cargo safely.
Rope is an obvious and economic choice. It’s versatile, strong and made of nylon to provide flexibility and prevent abrasions. Able to handle any size furniture and tie down to
difficult or nimble situations, rope is ideal for creating tie-downs in any trailer, moving truck or moving container. Nylon rope has a working load limit of 90 pounds.
Bungee cords are a versatile tool when packing spaces you need to stay put. The assorted package of heavy duty bungee cords come in pairs: 24”, 32”, and 40”. These bungees have
steel hooks with rubber tip covers at both ends to secure your loads easily in the trailer, back of a pickup truck or hook to the walls of the moving pod. Keep boxes from
shifting in transit with bungee cords that stretch twice their length, making an easy job for you to not have to guess what size you will need. With 6 to a package, you’ll be
able to use all on your lightweight items.
Cam Buckle Straps come with steel S-hooks to be attached to the walls, floors or any other place of your moving truck, pod or trailer. A strong one inch wide nylon strap provides
little stretch or give unlike rope or bungee cords which means less room for items to move around. Cam buckle straps have a working weight limit of 200 pounds and cannot be
over-tensioned at the buckle which makes them a good choice for securing delicate goods like boxes of lamp shades.
Ratchet tie down straps are a reusable form of holding down your goods in the moving truck, moving pod or trailer. One inch nylon strap and steel ratchets are strong and allow
you to provide custom tensioning with each strap. Steel S-hooks make it easy to attach tie down straps to the moving truck, trailer or portable moving container. A 300 pound
working weight limit, these ratchet tie downs are meant to deal with your heavy items and keep them in place.
"The large rubber bands where perfect for keeping dresser drawers closed when we moved. Used them inside our UHaul truck to hold the moving blankets on the sofa's and chairs. Really
easy to use and a great suggestion from your customer service person. Kids love playing with them too! Even though I can see that going very wrong. Thanks for the great and fast

"I purchased the ratchet tie-down straps instead of using rope with my PODS this time. Worked great and I would recommend to anyone that is using a POPDS container to get a few to hold
you items securely inside the container. Tie off at each support beam and ratchet away until you get it nice and tight. I found it easier than the rope. Anyway, thanks for the quick shipping
and low prices. A lot cheaper than Home Depot or Lowes."

"Picked up some rope and bungee cords to use with my PODS container. Perfect solution to hold the boxes and stackable's in place. Order arrived in one days and items where as described.
Will be buying more boxes from you all soon. Thanks."

"Purchased moving blankets, rubber bands and the forearm forklift. Amazing product. The forearm forklift was cheaper that our Home Depot and it was delivered to my house. I don't know how
anyone could move themselves without these things. They are amazing and my back sure was happy. Blankets were great quality and really inexpensive. Thank you for everything."
