Conducting furniture removals yourself can be quite easy if you have a sizeable car and only need to move a few things. When you need to move a three-seater sofa or six chairs then things start to become far more complicated. Most cars aren’t fit for large furniture and you don’t want to be making multiple trips to move lots of smaller articles.

You might be getting your furniture removed to take to a new apartment or holiday home abroad (lucky you) or you may need to move furniture into storage because you just don’t have the space in your current home.

If you’re running an online store through eBay, or your own site, you might want to employ a furniture mover to conduct deliveries to your customers.

So if your furniture move seems a bit daunting it can be well worth employing the services of professional furniture transport service or a general man and van company to assist you. The upside is that you’ll get to move everything in one go and you’ll have an extra pair of experienced hands to assist you.

Preparing Your Furniture For Transport:
There are a few steps you can take to get your drawers or sofas ready for transit:

Clean up: Dusting and polishing your wooden goods can help you note any damage there already is, and also makes any potential damage incurred in transport more obvious.

Secure: Things with moving parts should either be disassembled or made secure. Drawers should either be fixed shut or transported separately. Doors on wardrobes etc. should be taken off or fastened closed.

Check structure: Furniture that has been in place for a long time or moved about a lot might have become less than sturdy, make sure to take precautions with flimsy pieces.

Wrap up: To avoid damage to the finish on your furniture it’s important you keep it covered, you can use towels or carpet in a pinch; alternatively you could use specialist packing materials.

Depending on the level of service offered by your chosen furniture mover you may have to do more or less of these jobs.
