Five Strategies for Protecting Your Furniture against Damage When Moving

Nov 27, 2019 | Home & Living | 14 comments

If you have spent your money on quality furniture such as the piano, then it is likely you’ll want the item handled appropriately during a move. When moving a home or business, it is always important to ensure your items are well-protected to avoid incurring losses due to damage. Luckily, there are some strategies you can use to ensure your furniture reaches its intended destination in perfect condition.

Consider Moving Equipment

When moving furniture such as your piano or sofa, you may want to consider purchasing or hiring moving equipment. Even with a team to assist you, you shouldn’t underestimate the importance of having moving equipment. In addition to ensuring the safety of your items, moving equipment can help in preventing injuries during a move.

Prepare for Packing

Before you begin moving your furniture, you need first to ensure it is free of any debris including dust. During the moving process, the dust can scratch the surfaces of your furniture, especially if there are individual pieces stacked together. Cleaning the items before you can start moving them also makes great sense because you wouldn’t want to move the dirt into your new place.

Dismantle Your Furniture in Advance

If possible, you can dismantle the furniture completely before you begin transporting it. Take out the legs from couches and tables. In addition to making it easier to carry your furniture, dismantling will allow for the parts to fit perfectly into the moving truck. You can consult the manufacturer’s manual if you are uncertain about how you can go about dismantling your furniture. As you dismantle, make sure you use the Ziploc bags to keep your screws or other hardware materials associated with your furniture.

Wrap Your Furniture

Do not just throw your furniture into the moving truck without wrapping it. If you are moving the items on your own, you will need to make preparations. One of the most important things you’ll need to do is to wrap your furniture in plastic material. Doing this is an excellent way to ensure the furniture parts are put together securely. Apart from using the plastic wrap, you may consider using a moving blanket to wrap your furniture. Blankets are usually thick enough and will go a long way in protecting both the furniture and the walls of your new home. You may also decide to substitute the blanket with large sheets, towels, and flattened cardboard.

Hire Professionals

Moving is not as easy as you may want to imagine. To avoid making mistakes during a move, you need to consider hiring professional movers. With the right movers by your side, you’ll always have peace of mind knowing your furniture is in the right hands.
