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.
One main decision is whether you are going to go for a leather or a fabric sofa. A few questions to ask yourself are: how much use will this sofa get? What kind of area is it in and therefore what kind of spills is it going to be prone to? If it is a high-use area leather is durable easy to clean and non- absorbent for spills and smells. With professional help minor tears or scratches can be repaired with great results. Fabric on the other hand takes a bit more maintenance.
Before wrapping a sofabed ("hide-a-bed" couch) for moving make sure that the sofa can fit through the doors and can be safely moved out and brought into your new home. Try to remember if the sofa bed was moved in as one piece or if it was assembled inside. Was there any remodeling done that might have narrowed the hallway? If you think that the sofa would not fit through the door call the original store or sofa-bed manufacturer and see if they can come and disassemble it for you and then reassemble in the new place. This service might cost around $175.00 and it is well worth it.
The most important factor to take into consideration is the size of the sofa and the space you have available for it in your living room or the area where it would be standing especially the width and the depth. Start by measuring the room and remember to also measure the doorframes and staircases your sofa should fit through when you bring your sofa home.
