Tip #1 Decide Where Your Furniture Will Go Next
When preparing for your move, take the time to sit down and plan where your furniture will go next in the new house. Measure your sofa, coffee table, TV stand and other pieces to ensure that they’ll fit where you want them. Decide which room each piece will occupy and leave a detailed floor plan so your home removals company knows exactly where to place your furniture when moving your belongings.
Tip #2 Dismantle Your Furniture
If possible, dismantle your furniture to make the moving process easier for you and your removals team. We suggest removing any drawers, legs, knobs, shelves and racks from your furniture to save space and time.
Tip #3 Buy Furniture Slides
Furniture slides are your best friend! Buy or create furniture slides to make moving heavy items a breeze. Furniture slides come in all shapes and sizes and truly reduce hassle and strain. If you’re moving tables and chairs across a carpet, buy hard, plastic slides. But, if you’re moving wardrobes across hard flooring, opt for soft, padded sliders instead.
Tip #4 Buy Moving Blankets
The best way to protect your furniture from damage is to invest in high-quality moving blankets. Wrap your belongings once in moving blankets and then again in stretch film to eliminate the risk of bumps and scratches when moving your heavy items across rooms.
