Favorite Moving Tools: Forearm Lifting Straps

Little Guys Movers in Lexington use forearm lifting straps to move a large, heavy armoire.

Being in the moving business means we have a lot of tips and tricks that the average person probably doesn’t know about. That includes moving tools — those handy-dandy gadgets that make moving ten times easier than using brute strength alone.

One of our favorites and most used moving tools are forearm lifting straps. No, these aren’t the straps you may use with the barbell at the gym. These straps allow two people to carry extremely heavy items they never would be able to otherwise. And when we say heavy, we mean it — with lifting straps, two movers can carry safes, refrigerators, heavy furniture pieces, you name it.

How is this possible? It’s the magic of physics! The lifting straps employ leverage to redistribute the weight of the item, making it feel significantly lighter. As they say — work smarter, not harder.

If you move with Little Guys Movers in Lexington, you will almost certainly see our team pull out the forearm lifting straps. They reduce strain, making moving safer and easier. Plus with easy lifting, we don’t have to worry about scratching or scuffing your floors. (We have tools for avoiding scratches when we have to slide things, but it’s nice to not even have to be stressed about it!)

Proper moving tools are just another reason on the long list of why working with a professional moving company is a good idea. Amateur movers often don’t have these things (or don’t have experience with them). And if you’re considering moving yourself, you’re not going to want to spend a bunch of money purchasing the right equipment for your move. Or worse — going without any.

Little Guys Movers has all the right tools to make your move as simple as possible, and of course they don’t cost any extra. Furthermore, our movers are trained to utilize these tools safely and correctly. Skip the headache and work with a company that has the skills and tools for a proper move.
