Things to Remember About Moving Furniture

Moving day is here. You’re stressed, the kids are screaming, and your pile of organized boxes are scattered everywhere. But that isn’t even the worst part: you haven’t moved out a single piece of furniture.

It’s agonizing to think about. However, moving furniture doesn’t have to be a nightmare. And you don’t have to break your back to do it. Here’s a couple of tips on moving furniture that’ll make your next move a breeze.

Remember That Life Happens

The first thing to remember is that life happens. Accidents happen all the time. It’s important to keep yourself composed. Remember that it isn’t the end of the world if you accidentally damage a piece of furniture. Smart movers always have a plan. Research different insurance options to cover yourself and your items if they’re potentially damaged. It’s better to be prepared than surprised.

Move Easy Pieces First

How about you don’t start with the couch first? We understand it’s tempting to move the larger pieces of furniture first to get them out of the way, but you don’t have to. Work smarter, not harder. Save the largest pieces of furniture for the end and grab the smallest pieces first. You’ll not only conserve more energy, but you save yourself from taking multiple trips to move furniture.

You can also disassemble larger pieces of furniture to make them easier to carry. This saves time, energy, and prevents damage. In that case, be sure to keep the smaller pieces organized in boxes by the type of item it belongs to.

Make Sure You Have Some Padding

Don’t store your furniture in vehicles without protecting it with padding. While you can buy some packing supplies from your local supply store or storage facility, there’s an easier way. Wrap some blankets around your most valuable furniture, then wrap the blankets in plastic wrap. This method secures and protects your furniture from the damage that comes from your items rolling around in your car.

You Don’t Have to Do It Alone

Most importantly, remember that you don’t have to do it alone. Don’t damage your furniture trying to carry everything by yourself. We always recommend asking for the help of friends, family, or even hiring professional movers. It always helps to have a team.
