How to Move a Heavy Massage Chair

So, you’ve found the perfect massage chair and have enjoyed having it in your home. But now, you want to place the chair in a different room. Or maybe you’re moving to a new house. In either case, you’ll need to take come precautions to ensure your safety and guard against damage. I’ll bet your wondering how to move a heavy massage chair?

At Massage Chair Relief, we don’t want you to be injured moving your chair or for it to experience a problem after the move. To that end, we’re sharing a few tips on how to avoid both of those issues.

Before Moving a Massage Chair – Measure the Doorways

When your massage chair was delivered, the crew likely brought it in through the front door. So it should fit through your other doorways, then, right?

Not necessarily. Your interior door frames may not be as wide as your front entryway, so don’t make any steps toward moving your chair until you’ve taken measurements. And if you’re moving to a new home, measuring is particularly important, as it enables you to make plans on how to bring the chair in and where to place it in the house.

Consider the Weight

Think you’re pretty strong? A high-quality massage chair can weigh a few hundred pounds, and that can be more than the average person can handle.

We strongly recommend that you don’t attempt to move the chair on your own. Instead, ask a friend, family member or neighbor to help you move the heavy massage chair. You might also want to get furniture sliders, as putting one under each foot allows you to gently push the chair across the floor, limiting the amount of time you have to lift the heavy weight.

Hire a Professional Mover

If you’re moving to a new house and want to make sure your massage chair is fully protected – or if you cannot recruit anyone to help you move it within your home — hiring a professional mover makes sense.

Professional movers are accustomed to lifting and transporting heavy objects, and they’ll also have packing materials and equipment to safeguard your massage chair during the move. For your safety and peace of mind, it’s best to leave the moving to the experts.

Take the proper precautions, and you shouldn’t have any problems putting your therapeutic chair in a different spot or moving it to a new home. And if you have questions, you can always reach out to the friendly and knowledgeable team at Massage Chair Relief.

We truly care about our customers, and we’re happy to share our expertise. For more tips on moving your therapeutic chair, give us a call, send an email or stop by one of the Massage Relief showrooms today.
