The In’s and Out’s of Protective Moving Gear

We plan the move, we map out the dates and match the times, we pack up our stuff and we arrange a moving team. But what happens during the actual move? What about our items when they’re all ready to be taken away to the new location? This is where Shark Moving Services comes in.

The thrill of starting afresh in a new place often comes hand in hand with the stress of packing, organizing, and, of course, ensuring that your beloved furniture arrives at its destination unscathed. At Shark Moving Services, we understand the emotional attachment and value you place on your furniture. That’s why we’re committed to not only safely transporting your belongings but also ensuring they’re protected every step of the way.

In the beautiful province of Ontario, Canada, where we call home, we’ve witnessed countless families embark on new journeys, taking with them not just possessions, but memories woven into every fiber of their furniture. From the cozy couch where you cuddled up for movie nights to the sturdy dining table where countless meals were shared, each piece holds a special place in your heart. And it’s our mission to honor that sentiment by treating your furniture with the utmost care and respect it deserves.

When you entrust Shark Moving Services with your relocation needs, you’re not just hiring a moving company – you’re inviting a team of dedicated professionals into your home, each committed to ensuring a smooth and stress-free moving experience. And one of the ways we demonstrate this commitment is through the use of protective gear specifically designed to safeguard your furniture during transit.

Our team understands that no two pieces of furniture are alike, which is why we tailor our approach to suit the unique needs of each item. From delicate antiques to bulky sofas, we have the expertise and equipment to handle them all with care. Here’s a glimpse into some of the protective gear we employ:

  1. Furniture Blankets: Soft yet durable, our furniture blankets provide an extra layer of cushioning to shield your prized possessions from scratches, dents, and other potential damages during transport. Whether it’s a heirloom dresser or a contemporary coffee table, you can rest assured knowing that it’s swaddled in protective comfort.
  2. Shrink Wrap: For items that require additional stability or protection from moisture, we utilize shrink wrap to secure them in place. This transparent layer not only keeps your furniture intact but also provides visibility, allowing you to identify your belongings with ease upon arrival at your new home.
  3. Corner Protectors: The corners of furniture pieces are particularly vulnerable to damage during transit. That’s why we use specially designed corner protectors to reinforce these high-risk areas, minimizing the risk of chips, cracks, or other forms of impact.
  4. Mattress Bags: Your mattress is more than just a place to sleep – it’s a sanctuary of comfort and relaxation. To ensure it stays clean and pristine throughout the moving process, we encase it in a protective mattress bag, shielding it from dirt, dust, and potential tears.
  5. Floor and Doorway Protection: Moving furniture in and out of homes can pose risks not only to your belongings but also to the surrounding environment. That’s why we take proactive measures to safeguard your floors and doorways using protective coverings, preventing scratches, scuffs, or other damages.


At Shark Moving Services, we understand that your furniture represents more than just material possessions – it’s a reflection of your journey, your memories, and your identity. That’s why we go above and beyond to ensure that every piece arrives at its destination unscathed, allowing you to focus on settling into your new home with peace of mind.

So whether you’re relocating across town or across the country, trust Shark Moving Services to handle your furniture with the care, respect, and attention it deserves. Because when it comes to safeguarding your cherished belongings, we’re not just movers – we’re family.
