Often, during the weeks leading up to moving day, homeowners will spend a lot of time worrying about getting all of their belongings neatly packed into boxes. Many will use dozens of boxes and a range of additional packing materials to ensure that everything is ready for the removal firm on the pre-planned moving day. However, whilst devoting so much time and attention to the items that fit into boxes, many forget all about their furniture.
It isn’t uncommon for homeowners to not even think about their furniture until moving day itself and this can then cause a lot of unnecessary stress. Many won’t know whether they’re able to break furniture down or whether it will even fit through the doorways and, of course, it isn’t ideal to only be figuring these things out on an already manic day. So, to help any homeowners, our furniture removal company has put together a list of things to think about relating to your furniture before moving day.
Which pieces of furniture can be disassembled?
This is definitely something you should think about when moving home. If you’ve had the majority of your furniture for many years now, it’s likely that you will have forgotten how it arrived and more importantly, how many parts it came in. Take some time to have a look at your bigger pieces of furniture and see whether they’re able to be disassembled for the move.
Do you have everything you need to take these pieces apart?
If you’re able to take pieces of furniture apart, you also need to ensure that you have all of the tools required for the job. Whilst it’s likely that you have a standard tool kit in your house, ensure that you have the correct sized screwdrivers or allen keys, for example. The last thing you want is to have to go to a DIY job on the day of your move.
Can you do any disassembling in advance?
Depending on which pieces of furniture you use on a daily basis, you may find that you’re able to do some disassembling in advance. This can save a lot of time on moving days and it is worthwhile doing if you’re able to. So, think about which pieces you don’t really need for the days leading up to moving day.
Are you keeping all of your furniture?
Many people use moving home as a good excuse to have a declutter and when doing so, you should think about whether you’re going to be using all of your furniture in your new home. If you’ve purchased a new sofa, for example, it may be worth taking your old sofa to the dump before the move so it doesn’t take up room in your removal van.
Using a furniture removal company
Hopefully, when taking the time to think about everything mentioned above before moving day, you can make things a lot less stressful for yourself. You will be able to relax knowing that all of your furniture will easily be able to get from your old house to your new one without too much hassle. Of course, if you choose to use a professional moving company, then things will be even easier and you can focus on all other aspects of the move without needing to worry about getting the contents of your home safely to your new property.
