Question DetailsAsked on 9/21/2013

I need to move furniture around in my apartment to place down carpet liner and place the rug down and move it back.

Essentially, it is a quick job about 45 minutes to move TV stand/TV, computer desk, sofa. Install the felt liner and put rug (8X10) down and slide furniture back in place. Simply, I just need strong men with muscles.

Couple of suggestions for you:

1) A handyman could also do this, as well as movers

2) Got some friends who could do a quick moving exercise for you, then enjoy a movie and pizza party ?

3) if you have a friend or friendly neighbor, none of these items are real heavy. I assume you are on vinyl or laminate or hardwood flooring - put washcloths or towels under the feet of the furniture to avoid scratching the floor and shove them out of the way. Put the carpet down. Pull the furniture to the edge of the carpet, both people lift one end and set on the carpet, then put a large piece of cardboard from a box under those two feet and slide onto the carpet till the other two feet are at carpet edge. Put another peice of cardboard under those feet ands ramped up onto the carpet, then slide furnishings to where you want them.

If you decide on the handyman or mover solution, Search the List in the green banner bar for local ones and their ratings and reviews.

A word to the wise - you called it a rug but talked about underlayment. If carpet (with a backing) be sure the carpet underlayment is specifically rated for use on laminate or hardwood floors - should be breathable fabric or felt (not sure if you used the term felt specifically or as a general pad term), NOT foam - foam will stick to the flooring and get gummy. If a true carpet (fabric throughout with no backing) then should not need an underlayment unless quite open weave that would allow furniture feet to poke through.
