Moving the contents of a large house or a commercial building can be a grueling task, but having the right moving equipment can make it a lot less of a back breaking activity. Obviously heavy lifting shouldn’t be attempted by anyone with a history of health problems or even a sedentary life style. If you’re looking at an upcoming move as the perfect opportunity to make an overnight switch from “couch potato” to “human dynamo”, you might want to consider a more gradual approach getting in shape.

Hiring a reputable moving company can definitely make a dent in your budget, but it greatly reduce the probability of strained muscles and sore backs – at least yours! Many professional moving companies do offer packing services, but, assuming you have the time and energy, doing your own packing will save money and reduce concerns about theft or privacy issues.

If you’re considering buying moving equipment for personal or business use, there are plenty of moving supply companies on the Web that can provide you with the hand trucks, moving dollies, and walk ramps you might need to keep your moves as efficient as possible. One way to buy fewer pieces of moving equipment without sacrificing functionality is to get a convertible hand truck that doubles as a platform truck.

Advantages of Shopping Online

Shopping online for moving equipment, such as hand trucks and dollies, can be a convenient alternative to driving from store to store to compare prices, product features, and load capacity. The weight capacity can be an important feature to keep in mind when shopping for heavy duty hand trucks, especially if you plan on having to move heavy appliances or machinery. For example, a hand truck with a 200 pound weight capacity may not be strong enough to handle all the loads you’ll need to move, while an appliance hand truck with a 1200 pound capacity would have sufficient strength for most moving jobs.

The ideal moving supply storefront on the Internet carries a full range of moving equipment, such as hand trucks, movers’ dollies, and platform trucks. Other moving supply products that are useful include corrugated moving boxes, packing tape and dispensers, stretch wrap film, utility knives, and large moving pads (72” by 80”).

Buying moving equipment from a reliable moving supply store, either online or off, does not have to be exceptionally time consuming or expensive. Your purchases would be geared mostly to the size and weight of the furniture, machinery, or cargo boxes that you plan on moving, and the number of workers that would need hand trucks or heavy duty dollies at the same point in time. Regardless of the magnitude of a move, advance planning, organization, and clear communication are among the main ingredients or success.
