If wrapping sofa bed with moving blankets sounds like a lot of work - get a quilted sofa cover. Quilted sofa covers are made out of the same premium quilted moving blanket material and have three tie ups at the bottom.
Inspect foam sponge For modern sofas, the high-end seat cushion has a density of 30 kg per cubic meter with high-elastic foam and sponge. For the back side, cushion should be more than 25 kg per cubic meter in density with high elastic foam. To make a better feel and comfort, sofa makers make the cushions more soft or more stiff depending on the customer needs and preferences. Sometimes, metal springs are used for a higher elasticity and anti-aging purpose. As rules of thumb, when you sit on a sofa cushion, it should not sink or sag for more than 10 cm.
Check the quality of sofa framewor Shake the sofa or chaise sofa with two hands and feel if the whole framework is solid. If possible, open up a corner of cloth under the sofa bottom and check if there are rots, insects, scars, ect. You also need to check the wood frame to make sure its better joined through using mortise and tenon, instead of nails, and whether the mortise-tenon joint is strengthened with glue.
Wrapping a sofa bed for moving with moving blankets requires some skill and experience. Sofas, and especially sofa-beds, are bulky and heavy furniture. If you do not have experience, wrapping a sofa bed with moving blankets it is probably better left for professional household movers on the move day. On the other hand, a Quilted Sofa Cover can easily be used for moving a couch, and then reused to cover a sofa for long term storage, protection from dirt, dust, pet claws, fading from sun exposure, etc. Regular sofas normally do not present much of a challenge, because even though they are large - they are light-weight, but a large heavy sofa-bed might cause you trouble on the move day.
If you think that the sofa would not fit through the door, call the original store or sofa-bed manufacturer and see if they can come and disassemble it for you and then reassemble in the new place. This service might cost around $175.00 and it is well worth it.
