Full Answer

A Lift 'n Roll set consists of a heavy-duty lever with a rubber grip and four non-skid casters with eight wheels each. Using the system involves sliding the lever under the furniture item and using it to lift a corner of the piece. The casters slide into place under each corner. It's then possible to roll the heavy item to a different location before sliding the casters back out.

The Lift 'n Roll system is suitable for moving stoves, desks, beds, wardrobes or other large furniture pieces up to 330 pounds.

The EZ Moves system functions under a similar premise as the Lift ' Roll. However, in place of casters, the EZ Moves system relies on furniture slides. The slides consist of thick foam mounted on friction-resistant plastic. The plastic slides along floors and carpets easily. The method for placing the slides uses the same basic idea as the casters.
