Start taping the blankets on sofa in the middle (vertical), somewhere half the total height of the sofa and then go along the seating area from side to side. Starting just under the armrests and going along the frame right under the seat from one side to the other. Make sure to tuck and fold loose corners of the blanket neatly around the corners of the sofa and catch them with tape, so they cover the sofa sides and corners properly and do not hang loose. This will hold all four blankets in position. Go around over the same layer of tape at least 4 -5 times. This will provide strong support for carrying the sofa.
The key to a comfortable small sofa sleeper is all in the mattress. Some small and full size sleeper sofas have paper thin mattresses and springs sticking into the back. Most of us have experienced the dreaded sleeper sofas of old. Most sleeper sofas today are much better than the metal filled, spring loaded sleeper sofas of old. Still, the average sleeper sofa sold today is not what you would call comfortable either. Other small couch sleepers are incredibly comfortable and easy to lay on.
Now stand the sofa up on its side and wrap across in at least three sections: right over the armrests, and in the middle. For very long sofas make two midsection bands to catch the edges of the side blankets. Fold the excess of the moving blankets over the bottom. (There is no need to cover the whole bottom, unless you want to, but it is important to cover the corners.) Remove the legs, if removable. If legs cannot be removed - wrap and tape the moving blanket around the legs of the sofa-bed. Flip the sofa and do the same for the other side.
Wrapping a sofa bed for moving with moving blankets requires some skill and experience. Sofas, and especially sofa-beds, are bulky and heavy furniture. If you do not have experience, wrapping a sofa bed with moving blankets it is probably better left for professional household movers on the move day. On the other hand, a Quilted Sofa Cover can easily be used for moving a couch, and then reused to cover a sofa for long term storage, protection from dirt, dust, pet claws, fading from sun exposure, etc. Regular sofas normally do not present much of a challenge, because even though they are large - they are light-weight, but a large heavy sofa-bed might cause you trouble on the move day.
The most important factor to take into consideration is the size of the sofa and the space you have available for it in your living room or the area where it would be standing, especially the width and the depth. Start by measuring the room and remember to also measure the doorframes and staircases your sofa should fit through when you bring your sofa home.
