Ensuring the safety of your furniture and belongings during a move is paramount, and one of the best ways to protect your items is by using moving blankets. Also known as removalist blankets, furniture blankets, or storage blankets, these versatile protectors are designed to shield your possessions from scratches, dents, and dust. Whether you're relocating or placing items into storage, incorporating these blankets into your packing plans is a smart decision.


How many blankets do I need to move?

The number of moving blankets you require depends on the quantity and size of the furniture or items you plan to move. As a general guideline, larger pieces such as wardrobes, dining tables, and sofas might each need at least one or two blankets to cover them fully. For an average-sized home move, starting with a dozen blankets is a good baseline to keep your key furniture and heavy items protected. Remember, it's better to have a few extra blankets on hand than to find yourself without enough when the moving day arrives. Pairing moving blankets with heavy duty cartons for your smaller items can provide extra protection for your delicate belongings.

Can I use regular blankets instead of moving blankets?

While regular blankets can offer a layer of protection, moving blankets are specifically designed for the rigours of moving and storage. They are typically made from a blend of durable materials that can withstand heavy use without tearing. Regular blankets may not provide the same level of padding or resistance against sharp edges and rough handling. For optimal protection, especially for delicate wood finishes or glass components, investing in moving blankets is recommended. Additionally, complementing moving blankets with protective packing materials such as bubble wrap or bubble wrap alternatives, along with using packing tape to secure wrapping and moving blankets, will ensure your items are kept safe during transit.

For items that require filling empty sections to prevent movement, paper voidfill provides an alternative to traditional plastic fillers. Pairing moving blankets with the right combination of moving boxes and large cardboard boxes will give you a robust packing solution tailored to the demands of moving and storage.
