There are many reasons why an object may be easier to move with professional help, and in some cases, items may even need special regulatory approval before they can be moved between states. The new guide explains how an expert moving crew can help, which objects may be easier to sell or leave behind, and how to find a mover for specialty items, such as backyard playgrounds.
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), lifting any weight greater than 51 pounds has the potential to cause or contribute to a back injury. However, professional moving crews often use special carrying methods, tools, and custom-made crates for valuable items to ensure that they can be transported safely.
In certain situations, such as when moving a piano, the guide highlights how a professional mover can prevent users from unintentionally breaking the law. There are regulations in place that make it illegal to move ivory between states unless the piano in question meets certain requirements to qualify as an antique.
The guide contains an entire section dedicated to aquatic pets, and how to move an aquarium safely.
