A moving pad is a quilted blanket-like padded material used for protecting shipment items loaded onto a moving truck. Furniture pads are constructed of two exterior layers of polyester fabric sandwiching a half inch thick bolt of cotton padding. To keep everything in place, the surface of the pad is sewn with very strong thread in a zig-zag pattern every inch or so. Moving pads offer significantly more protection than a residential blanket and they are far more durable. All non-carton items on the truck are wrapped with some type protective pad. Arpin of RI has tens of thousands of protective pads waiting to protect your furniture from harm.
