What's the difference between a furniture dolly and appliance dolly?
Appliance dollies are more similar to hand trucks, or sack trucks, in that they stand upright with a flat ledge for the appliance to lean against. Appliance dollies also feature an additional strap to keep the appliance in place as it moves.
Furniture dollies are a lot simpler. Typically, furniture moving dollies are just flat rectangular boards with 4 wheels for the furniture to balance on.
How do you move heavy furniture with a dolly?
Simply position the furniture moving dolly adjacent to the furniture you need to move. Carefully lift one edge of the furniture and slide the dolly underneath. You should be able to push the rest of the furniture over the dolly until its centred and balanced. When you’re ready to move, slowly push the furniture to your desired destination. Be careful not to move the furniture off the dolly while you push.
