They have those furniture sliders in department stores. You can buy different sizes. They are gray plastic on one side and black on the other. They work very well. (09/22/2008)

Cardboard works well for moving furniture if you tip one end up and slide the cardboard underneath and then slide the furniture across the floor. (09/22/2008)

Or, for FREE, you can use plastic lids from empty plastic food containers under the feet, especially easy are the ones with smooth edges. I do it all the time--works great! (09/22/2008)

My husband the appliance tech uses cardboard. He keeps large pieces of cardboard to move ranges and refrigerators (you want heavy try moving a refrig or a range by yourself!) He tips the appliance up slides the cardboard under and puts it down and uses the cardboard that way. And on tiled or linoleum floor it saves rips tears and scratches too! (09/23/2008)

Someone told me years ago to use the waxy cardboard milk cartons that are rinsed out and dried and cut to the size you want. (09/24/2008)

I bought those gliders that Little Suzy told you about, from Lowe's and they worked liked a miracle. I had to move a really heavy organ and it moved as smooth as glass. We also moved a heavy hutch and it work well too. I think we bought them for $5.00 this spring. I'm going out and buy some more just to keep on hand for other things. (09/25/2008)

Magic Slides work well most of the time. I do have a very heavy desk that they don't work on, but they are definitely worth a try. Even if they don't work for this time, you will probably find them useful at another time. (09/26/2008)
