Lifting and carrying boxes is practically unavoidable when it comes to moving. Before you begin, it's important to know how to lift a box to avoid injury. We've spent time researching what health experts like the Mayo Clinic have to say about the best way to lift heavy objects--here are some of the highlights that you need to know:
-Clear a path through your home to the moving truck or container, moving any obstacles that you might trip over
-Wear closed-toe shoes that have considerable grip on the tread to avoid a slip or stubbed toe!
-If the box feels too heavy, don't try to lift it--grab a friend or moving dolly instead.
