Planning furniture removals can be a tricky process. There are many dos and don’ts to consider, including the type of furniture you have, where you’re going to move it from, and how you plan on getting it there. In this blog post, we will discuss the list of dos and don’ts for furniture removals so that your home-moving experience is as smooth as possible.
– Measure furniture before you remove it from your home. This will help you determine what size truck or van you will need for the move.
– Take photos of furniture and other belongings before house removals, so that you have a visual record of what goes where.
– Label each piece of furniture and box with its contents and destination room. This will make it easier to unpack when you arrive at your new home.
– Disassemble furniture if necessary, and pack it into boxes or crates for transport.
– Protect furniture by wrapping it in furniture blankets or sheets before loading it onto the truck or van.
– Use tie-downs and straps to secure furniture during transport.
– Use furniture covers to protect furniture from dirt, dust and other particles during transport.
– Make a brief inspection of any furniture before removing it to ensure there are no damages. Mark any furniture that needs to be handled with care as fragile.
– You don’t have to undertake a thorough cleaning. If you’re planning to move or get rid of furniture, though, the best practice is to dust or clean it first. You don’t want to move into a new home with furniture that is covered in heavy layers of dust.
– Protect flooring by laying a tarp underneath furniture that could easily get scratched or damaged on the way. This can also help protect curving walls if you have antiques or valuable pieces of furniture in your home.
– Try to move furniture that is too large or heavy for you to handle on your own. This could lead to accidents and product damage.
– Leave furniture uncovered during transport, as it will be susceptible to dirt, dust and other particles.
– Load furniture onto the truck or van without securing it first. This could lead to furniture damage or loss during transport.
– Place furniture on top of fragile items, as this could cause additional product damage.
– Packing tape and bubble wrap should not be used directly. Using packing tape and bubble wrap directly on your furniture’s surface could cause harm to the finish. They’re sticky, so attempting to remove them may damage the paint or leave an unsightly path of devastation on your furniture. Wrapping such objects with a piece of paper first, then using tape or wrap, is required.
– Do not be hurried. Rushing through the packing process is a recipe for disaster. Take your time and arrange the stuff you want to get rid of properly. It’s pointless to rush through things only to be dissatisfied because you missed something. If feasible, plan ahead of time and make a list of the products you’ll need and won’t need.
