Tips for Moving Big Furniture into Your Home
Moving big pieces of furniture can often be difficult because of their size and weight. These factors, combined with the often awkward shape of most large furniture pieces, make them hard to fit through doorframes or even carry up a flight of stairs. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for moving a large piece of furniture into your home.
Lighten the Load
Many large furniture items are heavy and cumbersome to carry. Many furniture pieces, luckily, can be disassembled, making to easier to carry them from one location to another. Moving an item of furniture piece-by-piece is the best way to ensure that you don’t hurt yourself or damage the item during the move. Take out the drawers of a dresser or remove the legs of a dining room table for a smoother, more convenient move.
Many pieces of furniture are made from sensitive materials that can easily get cracked, scratched or otherwise damaged during a move. Making sure your new furniture is wrapped in bubble wrap or another protective material is the best way to prevent unwanted damage in transit. Putting foam bumpers on the sharp corners of your furniture also helps to prevent your floors and walls from getting scratched while large furniture is being moved.
Before moving a big piece of furniture into your home, it’s important to make sure you have enough space to accommodate the new addition. If you want to invest in a new piece of furniture but you think your home is too cluttered as it is, a self-storage unit is a great way to make some room until you figure out an arrangement that works for all your furniture pieces.
