Furniture Sliders

Post by milspec6 on Fri Jun 17, 2016 5:03 pm

What is the consensus on these things? Who is using them and which brands are best?

I have a set of the EZ-Movers I think (shaped like knee pads) and they do work well for sofas, but useless on recliners. If it doesn't have legs, it isn't any help. I am not sure they are really worth it or not? A little pricey too.

I just tried some "As seen on tv" types that bought at a hardware store. They are octagon shaped disks and really cheap, but didn't work too well...kept sliding off the legs.

Not sure if I should stock up or forget about these things.

I have a couple of cheap sets in each van and hardly use them, I don't move heavy furnitures, electronics and breakables, I only use them if customer insisted that I move their stupid sleeper, claiming that I told them on the phone that we move sofas, love seats, etc.
The cheap sets work well for me especially on sofa sleeper and heavy coffee tables ( we're talking about 200 lbs coffee tables that we encounter sometimes ).
And yes they are the octagon shape ones.

Never liked them and wont use them. I cant see lifting to insert them....then sliding then taking them out and having to lift again....I just slide/walk the bulk unit and get it done. Using them seems to create more possible injury in my book.

It depends on the piece if it's light enough I'll just slide it over, if it's on wood I put the furry covers on them to move it. Like I tell me customer. I won't move anything that will break my back or break your heart

I roll with the harbor freight ones, they arent the best but really inexpensive and sometimes if getting a foam block or tab under is just too tough you can just leave it.

Its like 5$ I think for 8 of them, they work better than the as seen on tv ones.

Indispensable for me, use them all the time. Home Depot ones-The Moving Men I think their called. Harbour Freight ones are ok, not as good. Foam is too stiff and the furniture leg slides off. I install them when cleaning sofas. Move the piece around w/o scratching floors. I leave them at customers homes and usually find them again when I return the next year, lol. Great for moving large fancy framed beds, keeps those middle legs from hanging up underneath.

I will check out the Home Depot ones later this week.

I still remember cleaning a house about a month ago that had sliders under all the furniture in the living room. I asked them if they were trying to help me out? They told me that I left them there a year ago. Razz
