Transporting furniture can be done quite simply. If it’s just a chest of drawers or a few chairs, you can often find space for them in your car. If you don’t drive or have to transport larger items, moving furniture starts to become a lot more complicated. Trying to fit tables and wardrobes into the family hatchback is no mean feat; which is why sometimes it’s preferable to employ the services of a furniture delivery company.

There are lots of reasons you might be looking for furniture transport, taking things in and out of storage is a common reason. Buying furniture online is becoming more popular and second hand furniture on eBay is a huge category.

If you’re buying furniture online, whether it is through eBay or another service, you may find that the seller won’t arrange delivery for you. Pick up only sales are especially common when it comes to larger items such as furniture that requires more than a basic mail service. Driving to go and pick up your new purchase can be a pain and also quite wasteful given that you have to make the journey both ways.

Luckily there are specialist furniture courier services that you can organise to pick up your new armchair or armoire and deliver it to you safely. These services can be cheaper than the amount you’d spend on fuel if the delivery is on their route anyway.

Before transporting your furniture

Prior to having your furniture transported make sure that you check it’s condition, and take pictures of it. This will help you to see if it’s been damaged when it arrives. When buying second hand furniture online make sure that the seller provides accurate details and images.

When it comes to packaging your furniture different services will have different policies, some will want to pack it themselves whereas others will allow you to do it yourself - which brings us to finding the right courier service.
