Wrapping a sofa bed for moving with moving blankets requires some skill and experience. Sofas and especially sofa-beds are bulky and heavy furniture. If you do not have experience wrapping a sofa bed with moving blankets it is probably better left for professional household movers on the move day. On the other hand a Quilted Sofa Cover can easily be used for moving a couch and then reused to cover a sofa for long term storage protection from dirt dust pet claws fading from sun exposure etc. Regular sofas normally do not present much of a challenge because even though they are large - they are light-weight but a large heavy sofa-bed might cause you trouble on the move day.
Where the problem comes in with most small sleeper couches is comfort. Because the sofa is small the mattress or bedding option is usually quite low in quality and uncomfortable. What people do not realize is that not all small sofa sleepers are created equal. There are small couch sleepers on the market today that are incredibly comfortable. Some may even argue that they are more comfortable than the full size option as comfort is not determined solely by size.
For configurations will a simple 2 or 3 seater work in your space or can it take a larger corner or chaise lounge? Do you move house regularly? Chaise lounges are a great solution for many modern apartments but if you move around a lot the chaise is fixed on that side so it may not work in your next home a 3 seater & an ottoman would be a better choice. It`s best to decide before hitting the shops and being swayed by what`s on display. In most cases every sofa design is available in a range of various sizes and configurations to suit your needs.
Start taping the blankets on sofa in the middle (vertical) somewhere half the total height of the sofa and then go along the seating area from side to side. Starting just under the armrests and going along the frame right under the seat from one side to the other. Make sure to tuck and fold loose corners of the blanket neatly around the corners of the sofa and catch them with tape so they cover the sofa sides and corners properly and do not hang loose. This will hold all four blankets in position. Go around over the same layer of tape at least 4 -5 times. This will provide strong support for carrying the sofa.
