Even heavy furniture and large appliances can be moved without the use of a wheeled dolly when you have the right gear. The ergonomic arm straps and harnesses on our list help you use your own body to create leverage and lifting power, so you and a companion can carry a couch down the stairs or a fridge from the truck to the kitchen. Setting up a new home just got easier and safer. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

April 10, 2019:

There's no knowing what sort of moving jobs life will bring, from changing offices to moving homes, or even simply moving furniture from one room of the house to the other. We looked for moving straps that can address a variety of these jobs. If you are a professional mover, then you'll appreciate that the Nielsen Products 3500 Pro Lift can support half a ton, so you'll never have to tell a client, "I can't move that." For more moderate jobs, like taking a large desk from a truck into your new home office, the MyFree 530 has you covered, as it can support 300 pounds. If several helpers may hop on the job, you'll like the Gindoly M-4854 and Nielsen Products Ready Lifter, both of which are highly adjustable to suit people of different heights comfortably. When an increased sense of balance and control is critical, and finding that perfect weight distribution is of the utmost importance, the Nielsen Products 3500 Pro Lift and TonsLift 5287 will come in handy, with their sturdy harness designs that provide excellent support during tough jobs.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
