Moving all your items upstairs can be a tricky process that if done incorrectly could risk injury. We highly recommend hiring professionals if moving heavy items upstairs. You will want to make sure you have taken proper precautions by wrapping furniture in both pads and wrap. Bend at your knees, while keeping a straight back throughout. Make sure you team lift all heavy items with matching grips. Keep the weight of the item forward and slowly go up one step at a time. An appliance dolly may be useful if moving extremely heavy items or appliances upstairs.
