Having your runners constantly move around on your carpet from people walking on them and accidentally kicking them can be a real pain. No one wants to have to keep bending down to fix the runners and make sure they stay in one place, so thankfully there are ways that you can keep your runners from moving around on your carpet, and they're simple solutions.

The first method is to buy some double-sided adhesive carpet tape which will hold the runners down on the carpet and prevent them from sliding around when they're walked on. What you need to do is apply a few pieces of the double-sided tape to the bottom of the runner, preferably one in each corner of the runner and a few in the middle to provide some support. Then peel off the bottom layer of each piece of tape to reveal the adhesive and press the runner firmly down onto the carpet to ensure that it takes hold. The double-sided carpet tape is safe for use on carpets and will not damage it at all. 

Another solution is to buy some non-slip mats to place under the runners. These mats are usually made of rubber or another substance that will grip the carpet and the runner and hold it in place. It will create a resist surface that will not move or slide when being walked on, and is perfect to use on your runners so that they won't move on the carpet. Simply lift up the runners and place the mats beneath them.

Moving Tips & Guides
Ask for replacement value ...
Moving companies are required by law to insure your items, but they only need to pay 60 cents per pound of damaged property in the free insurance plan. In order to have true peace of mind while moving, you need to purchase insurance that offers replacement value protection. This allows you to calculate the true value of your items and have the moving company cover that value if the item is damaged or lost.

How to Find Piano Movers
Pianos make a wonderful addition to any home. However, when moving to a new home, transporting these instruments can be a hassle. Since all pianos are large, fragile, and expensive, the best option is to have professionals handle the move rather than doing it yourself. While many moving companies have experience moving pianos, you might feel more comfortable using a company that specializes only in moving the instruments.
