Homeowners love to make a statement with their floors. Whether your foyer features reclaimed barn wood or Calacatta marble, chances are you have an emotional connection to this pricy home item that puts your personal stamp on your home. At Hevi-Haul, we understand your labor of love and when it comes to moving heavy furniture or other items, we have rollers designed specifically for your needs.

Milwaukee Homeowners Have Two Choices: Steel or Polyurethane

Let’s talk polyurethane first. For many homeowners looking to protect their floors, polyurethane rollers will be the Hevi-Haul wheels you need. There are three main reasons polyurethane may be your best choice:

  1. You are looking for maximum protection for your floors. You’ve invested in your flooring, so utilize a moving solution that will leave them the way they found them.
  2. When you have an epoxy-coated floor. Polyurethane wheels are the ideal choice to minimize any marring or marking up of your floors.
  3. They are quieter. If using rollers in a residential setting, such as an assisted living facility, minimizing the overall disruption by reducing the noise will be greatly appreciated by staff and other residents.

    Though polyurethane rollers are our most protective rollers, there are times when steel rollers will be your heavy-move rollers:

    1. They excel with floors that aren’t in the best shape including floors that have gaps, unevenness or cracks. They are our best wheels for all-purpose moving with conventional flooring, such as a loft space with concrete floors.
    2. Steel rollers are the most cost-effective solution.
    3. They have the highest weight capacities and hold up well in a variety of conditions. They can handle very heavy loads with ease, and for sustained amounts of time. Does your piano need to sit on that mover skate for a bit before it gets settled in its new home? Steel is your go-to roller material!

    Our Hevi-Haul skates accommodate both types of rollers. So if you purchase Hevi-Haul skates with steel rollers, you can always switch them out for polyurethane rollers, or vice versa.
