Covering the dresser with a blanket will prevent damages to the walls as well. No matter, how cautious you are when moving the dresser, in some cases you may scratch the walls. That’s why it is so important to cover the dresser with a blanket.

Once your piece of furniture is covered, you can situate it on top of the furniture dolly. Just make sure that the dresser is directly centered on the dolly. If you are about to move up stairs, you can use a two-wheeled dolly. Experts in furniture services such as Ikea assembly workers recommend to use a bungee cord to prevent the dresser from falling down during the moving process. If you need to move the dresser around the same level of the home, you can use furniture sliders which are designed to provide easy moving.
