Types of moving blankets and their role in moving process

Moving across long distances brings its own set of challenges, especially when it comes to keeping your belongings safe and secure. At Local Orange County Movers, we place a high priority on the protection of your items. For every long-distance move, we use the highest quality moving pads to ensure that each piece of furniture is well-protected against the rigors of travel.

The Importance of Moving Pads in Protecting Your Items

Moving pads, or blankets, are indispensable for preventing damage to your furniture and valuables during transport. These protective covers shield against scratches, dents, and the general wear that can occur during a move. However, the protection offered by moving pads varies based on their specifications.

Standard Size for Comprehensive Coverage

The majority of moving pads are designed in a 72 inches by 80 inches dimension. This universal size ensures a wide range of furniture, from delicate heirlooms to bulky sofas, is fully covered and protected.

Weight Indicates Level of Protection

  • Lightweight Moving Blankets: At about 43 pounds per dozen, they provide basic cushioning suitable for items requiring minimal padding.
  • Economy Moving Pads: Weighing approximately 54 pounds per dozen, these pads offer a balance between protection and ease of handling.
  • Mid-Weight Moving Blankets: With a weight of about 65 pounds per dozen, they're ideal for more valuable possessions needing extra care.
  • Heavy-Duty Moving Blankets: At roughly 75 pounds per dozen, these are made for the most valuable items and toughest moves.
  • Premium Moving Blankets: Weighing 85 pounds per dozen, these are optimal choice for local and long distance moves.
  • Supreme Moving Blankets: The heaviest at up to 95 pounds per dozen, they offer the ultimate protection for your most sensitive items.

Material Choices for Durability and Protection

  • Polyester: Chosen for its strength and durability, ideal for heavy-duty blankets.
  • Cotton: Provides a gentler protection, perfect for delicate surfaces.
  • Recycled Textile Fibers: An environmentally friendly option that still offers solid protection, used in various blanket types.
  • Woven vs. Non-Woven Fabrics: Woven fabrics are selected for durability and resistance to tears, making them suitable for more demanding uses.
