One of the most difficult items to prepare for a big move is furniture. Not only is it bulky, heavy and difficult to lift, it also has a large possibility of being damaged during the move if you have not chosen a professional moving company in Main Line, PA to help out with getting your furniture to your new home.
While hiring movers in Doylestown, PA can help to limit the risk to your furniture during a move, there are still some precautions that you need to take before the big day. Take our tips to prepare your furniture for the move ahead of time, and limit the risk during your move!
Take it apart, if possible. The easiest way to make moving furniture more manageable is to disassemble it as much as possible. If it’s possible to take the legs off any tables, you should carefully unscrew everything possible, place any screws in a small plastic bag and be sure to keep them separate from the rest of your moving.
Remove the drawers. Removing the drawers from any chest or dresser can help you prevent damage from falling and can help to prevent injury when moving the drawers outside of the home. Remove any drawer possible, and use them to pack up soft items like clothing of children’s plush toys. Then, place the drawer inside a garbage bag to prevent spilling or movement during the ride.
Protect glass with bubble wrap. While most glass tables have a top that is able to be removed, this is not enough to keep sensitive and fragile pieces from breaking. You should make sure that you wrap any glass furniture in at least two layers of bubble wrap. You can protect corners by cutting out a small piece of cardboard and taping it to the sharp corners of any glass to prevent damage.
