How to Move Your Furniture Safely and with More Ease
The thing with furniture is they can be big and of irregular shapes too. That is why most people are advised to hire the removals company to pack and transport the furniture. Nevertheless, if you want to do it yourself nothing should stop you. Just make sure that you will be doing it the right way so you will still be able to use your furniture when you arrive to your new home.
First, you should plan ahead and start early. You should get all necessary packing materials before you start. Furniture would need to be cushioned in corners to prevent scratches. Delicate parts are also reinforced to avoid damage. And they are usually wrapped well so again scratches are prevented. Some furniture needs to be disassembled though. If this is the case, put all the pieces of one piece of furniture in a single box if possible. Label the boxes too so you will easily find the furniture you need in the right rooms. If other pieces are boxed in a separate box, you would also find them conveniently. Before you pack the furniture, make sure that you have emptied the drawers. Secure the drawers too so they will not fall during loading and transportation. You can also remove the drawers to make the furniture lighter.
To ensure that your furniture would be safe from your current address to your new home, make sure all passages are clear and big enough for them. This way, you can avoid bumping or dropping the furniture when loading and unloading each of them.
