Last spring I had new floors installed in my kitchen and laundry room.
The fellow doing it was able to move all the heavy appliances by
himself (refer, washer/dryer). He used some kind of skids that were
long strips, maybe 6-8" wide by 4' long. Must have had some silicone
or something slippery on the bottom. He tipped the appliance and
shoved the strips under the feet. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
Where I can get some?

appliances to slide for moving. DK >>
This is a popular and very effective trick that pro movers use. Get your carpet
pieces from free samples at any carpet store and use them upside down. Or check
the curbs on trash day in your neighborhood. There are so many people replacing
carpet with hardwood flooring these days that you shouldn't have to drive more
than a block,ot two. HTH
Yes, carpeting would work on smooth floors. But what about moving
furniture over carpet? The strips used by the floor installer were
smooth and hard, like heavy, thick plastic.
