Moving furniture on laminate????

We are about to put laminate (PergoMax) in our bedroom. Our furniture is very heavy and there's no way my wife and I could lift the dressers completely to move them (on carpet we use those big pads under the furniture to slide them around.)

Is there a way to move heavy furniture on laminate flooring without lifting it completely (we'll take the drawers out to make it as light as possible) and yet not scar the floor?

I'd set scrap carpet or a small rug under the legs to both help it slide easier and protect the flooring.

There are all kinds of furniture sliders available for various floors. Go to any bog box or hardware store and ask or read the labels carefully.

Thanks gentlemen. I didn't even occur to me that there would be sliders for hard floors in addition to carpet.

Can use felt protector pads or felt discs to move the furniture.
