    Moving furniture into apartments - GIFs and photo

    Moving furniture into apartments.

    I like this Dutch one, with the furniture elevator and the moving truck lined up side-by-side:



    This one wins both the height award and the Internet Safety award; it's labeled as South Korean:



    Of course we must mention the sofa-sliding-down-ropes classic, obviously American. Rumor has it that this was how George Washington moved his sofa across the Delaware River.



    But I think this still image is my favorite. I believe this is Portugal:

    zip line sofa, guess they will be making a new extreme sport out of that one.
    That last pic looks like a disaster waiting to happen. Quick grab a video camera we can make the next episode of the world's funniest stupid people on video.

    These furniture sliders are nothing new, but I like that little jack. I might skip those plastic wheels, but it seems like a really useful indoor house tool.

    Interesting toe jack and similar to the drain grate lifter...might like bigger and wider wheels depending on the carpet.

    Quite an innovative builder on his YT channel. This one needs a bit of work on the toe part but the leverage from the size of it is impressive.

    Thanks Jon!
