I saw them once flipping channels in the middle of the night ...they were these little discs that went under heavy furniture and allowed one person to move heavy objects.

I have a desk that weighs eleventy-million lbs. smack dab in the middle of my livingroom that I would dearly love to move into a front bedroom...anybody know what these things are and if they work and where I can get some??

fruitcake!

a cat?

I think they have them at Wal-Mart mixed in with casters for chairs, felt pads and things like that in the hardware dept, any hardware store should have them too. Not sure what they are called though

Overpriced, in my opinion, but probably something like this or this.

Those are them!! I've had this behemoth of a desk in the middle of my livingroom for the past 2 weeks since the movers finally delivered all my stuff...I made the mistake of having them fill the front bedroom with all the misc. boxes and then when they started bringing actual furniture in, the inn was full. I'm surprised I haven't bashed a temple out on one of the corners of the desk yet, but I think I'm going to have to spring for these just to get this thing where it belongs.

Thanks!

Im not sure but maybe they are called furniture doilies(sp)?
U-haul referred to them as that.

Hey nejb-is that floor carpeted? Please be aware that if you have to move that behemoth of a desk across hard surfaces like linoleum or especially hard wood floors, if the desk really weighs that much you may still scratch or gouge the surfaces. Those lil plastic doodads are only for use on carpeted surfaces. Good luck!

They are called Moving Men. My FIL has some and swears by them. They have moved around some VERY heavy pieces of furniture with them. I think they *might* have them at WalMart or Walgreens.

Uh-oh...it's on the living room carpet now, but I need to get it down the ceramic tile hallway, through the foyer and into the front bedroom. So you think that'll ding up the ceramic tile? <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif" border=0>

Do you have area rugs or throw rugs that you can use to make a path across the floor?
You will need to secure them so that they don't move (can you get someone else to
stand on the corners)?

Furniture Skids, as i've always heard them called.

WOW! THat is what they look like....




Anyways this is my questions.


1. In one pic they were under a stove. Do you just leave them under the stove all the time? I don't know that looks kind of tacky and ranks up there with the plastic on the furniture idea.

2. If you do just put them under the furniture to move it then how is it that you can lift the furniture to stick the disks under it, but you can't slide the furniture across the room?

You only have to lift up each end for a second or two to stick the movingman underneath it, and then it should slide more easily accross the floor. A few seconds of exertion make the whole long struggle of moving the furniture much easier.

Thanks everyone for your help...this is so driving me crazy. It took 3 movers to get that desk in here, and it's a rental so I'm really nervous about messing up this pretty ceramic tile floor. Maybe I'll just put a potted plant on top of it and leave it at that <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif" border=0>

hire a local handy-man/rent-a-husband to deal with it and call it a day <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>

Usually it was my little toes/feet that end up under the furniture to help it move...lol

Once ya get it to the tile you should put a sheet or two (double folded )then slide it down hall.
Then back to little things.

they are called magic movers available for 4.99+ship at Hotbuy4u.com
