If you recently bought or sold a house, you may need to vacate your residence sooner rather than later. This probably means that you'll need to prepare a wide range of large items for moving day, including your furniture.

Ultimately, moving furniture from Point A to Point B can be quick and simple here are three tips to help you transport chairs, couches and other furniture to your new address.

1. Pick Up Furniture Sliders

When it comes to moving furniture, it pays to work smart not hard. If you purchase furniture sliders prior to moving day, you should have no trouble moving furniture over carpet, grass or other rough surfaces.

Furniture sliders usually are inexpensive and easy to find at any hardware or home goods store. Plus, these sliders can be placed under the legs of any chair or couch to make it simple for you to glide your furniture across rough surfaces.

To install furniture sliders, you'll need to lift each corner of a piece of furniture and move the sliders underneath. By doing so, you can use these sliders to reduce friction when you push furniture across a rough surface, resulting in a faster, more efficient move.

2. Consider Lifting Straps and a Hand Truck

Let's face it furniture can be tough to move on your own. Fortunately, if you purchase lifting straps and a hand truck, you can avoid putting too much pressure on your body while you move furniture.

Lifting straps are designed to help minimize weight on your back, making them ideal for moving furniture and other heavy objects. They require two people to use and help these individuals share the weight of heavy items. However, you should not use lifting straps if you plan to move furniture up or down stairs, as the weight of a piece of furniture will shift to the person on the bottom.

Also, a hand truck represents a worthwhile moving day investment, particularly for those who need to move lots of furniture quickly. Hand trucks are available in a variety of sizes and enable you to wheel furniture in and out of a home.

3. Hire a Moving Company

If you need to move furniture and have no idea what to do, there is no need to worry. Many moving companies are available in cities and towns nationwide, and each of these businesses employs friendly, knowledgeable moving professionals.

Moving furniture can be time-consuming and physically demanding. On the other hand, if you hire a moving company, you can avoid the challenges commonly associated with moving furniture from one location to another.

Lastly, if you need extra help to move furniture or other heavy items, you should consult with a real estate agent. In addition to helping you buy or sell a house, a real estate agent can connect you with the top moving companies in any area.

Enjoy a quick, seamless transition to a new address use the aforementioned tips, and you can simplify the process of getting your furniture to your new address.

For parents who need to move a family from Point A to Point B, keeping kids busy can be difficult. Lucky for you, we're here to help you entertain your kids throughout the moving cycle.

Now, let's take a look at three activities that you can use to keep your kids busy on moving day.

1. Packing Last-Minute Items

Last-minute items like clothing and toys will need to get packed up before you can leave your current address. Fortunately, you can rely on your kids for extra help with packing these belongings.

Including your kids in the packing process is a great way to bond with your children. In fact, you and your kids can work together to pack up last-minute belongings and ensure these items quickly and safely reach your new address.

2. Creating a Moving Day Journal

Let's face it moving can be stressful, particularly for kids. However, if you encourage your kids to create a moving day journal, you may be able to help your children alleviate stress.

A moving journal offers a great opportunity for a child to express his or her thoughts about an upcoming move.

Furthermore, a child can use a moving journal to envision what life might be like at his or her new house. This journal can even include drawings that illustrate how a child might decorate his or her new bedroom, lists of ideas about things to do near a new house and much more.

3. Playing Board Games and Car Games

Pack a bag of board games to help your kids pass the time in the car you'll be glad you did. These games are easy to play and will help your children stay entertained for hours.

Memorization games are great for kids and parents alike too. Of course, don't forget about the classic "I spy" game that you can play with your children while you drive to your new address.

Lastly, if you need extra help as you prep for your move, you should not hesitate to reach out to a real estate agent.

A real estate agent is a moving expert who can take the guesswork out of relocating to a new residence. He or she can help you get in touch with local moving companies, offer packing tips and provide fun suggestions so that you can keep your kids busy while traveling.

Perhaps most important, a real estate agent can offer comprehensive assistance as you buy or sell a house. If you need help finding a residence or selling one as quickly as possible, a real estate agent will work with you so that you can achieve your goals. Also, a real estate agent is happy to respond to your homebuying or home selling concerns at any time.

Want to get the most out of moving day with your children? Take advantage of the aforementioned moving day activities, and you and your kids can enjoy an unforgettable moving day experience.
