Next, if this is a sofa bed - tie up the bed frame to the sofa frame. You can use any type of packing rope, moving strap, or make a tie up out of a packing tape. Cover sofa with moving blankets. Now it is time to start wrapping. It takes 4 moving blankets of regular size (72 x 80 inches) to cover a sofa bed.
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.
Do not put sofa on blankets, put moving blankets on sofa! You might have seen recommendation to put blankets on the floor first and then put sofa on top of the blanket to wrap it. Doing it this way is very inefficient, labor intensive and time consuming. (Time is money, especially when you hire movers. And in this case what is good for mover is not necessarily good for you). This method requires additional floor space to lay down blankets, while the sofa is still occupying its own space. Then you need a helper to put the sofa on the blanket and to keep the falling ends of the blanket up when you try to tape them. And last, but not least the sofa bed legs (if not removed) will create holes and destroy the blanket when the sofa is pushed around in the moving truck.
Another very creative design, you can actually transform this sofa into a bunk bed with a small ladder. If you have kids or if guests suddenly show up, you can use this sofa to transform quickly into a spare bed. Not only does it have a useful feature, it looks visually stunning too.
To secure the moving blankets on the sofa you can use rubber bands or tape. If you are wrapping sofa in the moving truck or it is possible to just roll it out on a moving dolly - rubber bands would suffice. But if you are planning to maneuver the sofa-bed through the doorway or move the couch down the stairs, you have to use packing tape. Rubber bands do not provide sufficient hold and blankets can slip off the sofa. Mover would have no grip on the sofa to carry it.
