What Are Moving Blankets?

Worried about something breaking during your move?

Moving blankets protect large items, like wooden furniture and sculptures, from cracks and dents. In essence, they are blankets — big pieces of cloth. However, moving blankets usually come with extra reinforcement, tougher fabric, and sometimes even protective lining.

Using moving blankets isn’t rocket science. Unfold the blanket and cover an exposed edge of furniture or an entire, fragile item. Use thick tape, like duct tape, to secure the blanket in place.

Here is a list of items that moving blankets can be useful for:

  • Couches
  • Chairs
  • Vases
  • Sculptures
  • Tables
  • Lamps
  • TVs

Moving blankets cost anywhere between $5 and $20, depending on the size and sturdiness. If you want free moving blankets, check your closet.
