Low-range lightweight moving blankets, 3.5 lbs and under, usually will run you between $6.00 and $12.00 each. These pads offer very little protection. Lightweight moving blankets are often associated with protecting products or personal belongings from dust while in storage applications.

Mid-range moving blankets weighing 3.5 lbs to 5.5 lbs usually cost somewhere in the range of $9.00 to $15.00 each. These blankets are good for protecting hardwood furniture, sofas, and most harder objects. These are probably the most popular types of moving blankets people use and offer a good deal of protection. This is the most commonly used type of moving blankets and are often the ones that are used for professional moving applications.

High-range moving blankets weighing 5.5 lbs up to 9 lbs will cost you in the range of $14.00 to $25.00 each. These blankets are the top of the line and are great for protecting fragile items and softwood furniture. These blankets are the best you can get and offer maximum protection.

Are Cheap Moving Blankets Worth The Risk?

We often have our customers ask us which level of moving blankets we recommend to protect their belongings and ultimately this will depend on a couple of questions to ask yourself. Is the personal belongings you are transporting at higher risk of becoming scratched such as fragile, antique, or higher-end furniture that is extremely expensive to repair or replace?

In a way, Moving Blankets plays a pivotal part in offering cheaper insurance for both consumers and professional movers to reduce the risk of items dinging or moving around in the moving truck that could cause anything ranging from scratches, dings, dents, or other damage.

For reference, our highest tier of moving blankets is roughly $17.00 each when sold to individuals which when compared to the price of an insurance claim on a customer’s furniture makes choosing moving blankets an ideal solution. Professional movers that arrive at the customer’s next location with damage to furniture are often met with costly insurance claims that could raise insurance rates, loss of repeat business, and bad reviews which can hurt a moving company’s ability to receive new business.

For customers who are moving their furniture during a move items that are at risk of becoming damaged may not always be easily replaceable and could hold sentimental value or memories of being passed down through the family from generation to generation. In this situation we would class this as high-risk personal belongings of not being able to easily replace and as it could become damaged during a move. We would recommend our high-range or ultimate moving blankets to ensure that the pieces arrive safely at the next location in the same condition they were left in.
