The guide suggests that families living in homes with lots of heavy furniture like dressers, bedsteads, chests, dining tables, and armchairs should try several ways to make moving the furniture easier. They can make the items lighter by removing drawers, shelves, and other contents, or by disassembling them, making sure to keep track of screws and bolts needed for reassembly.
Moving heavy furniture can also be made easier by using furniture pads or furniture sliders. The first protects pieces from damage, and the second reduces friction when the furniture is pushed across the floor. If heavy furniture needs to be moved downstairs, makeshift ramps can be made with two boards, or moving tools like moving straps or hand trucks may be useful.
