Moving blankets come in different varieties. The two main differences between blankets are their weights and fabric quality. It is interesting the way moving blankets are broken up regarding their weight. All blankets are sold and shipped in quantities of 12. The weight of the blanket is represented by the weight of the dozen as a whole. For example, a heavier blanket would be a 65lb dozen where a lighter weight blanket would be a 43lb dozen. When it comes to the type of fabric, higher quality woven fabrics are often used and reused where less expensive, nonwoven fabrics are less durable and more often used for onetime moves. Whatever type of moving blankets you have, either type can be reused for other purposes after the move. From sliding furniture across solid surfaces to dog beds, it is their durable construction that makes these blankets great for other jobs.
There is no question that using blankets to wrap your furniture to avoid damage is a much better option than wrapping them in moving paper. Also, the amount of wasted paper and cardboard resulting from the move can be overwhelming.

These blankets can also be repurposed into drop clothes to catch messes made by kids while they eat, create an art project, or for the do-it-yourselfer talking on a home improvement project.
Heavier weight blankets are not as easy to get into the washer. So they are best to be used for less messy jobs. The heavier weight blankets make great sound barriers that can be hung on the walls to make a room more sound proof. Also, using the heavier blankets to wrap valuables that aren’t being used is another good idea. If they have a significant layer of protection, the chances they will be damaged in an over stuffed storage area or closet is greatly reduced.
Even during your move, once off the furniture, moving blankets can assist you with moving furniture across a hardwood or solid surface floor. Or use the blankets to protect walls and doors while your furniture and appliances are being moved in or out.
