Packing Furniture for a MoveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

If you are thinking about moving soon, you may consider selecting a moving company in Denver to assist. This is because while moving small things should be fairly easy, moving bulky furniture could be an intimidating task– especially if you aren’t planning on getting any help. You could easily scratch or damage your pieces of furniture if you don’t plan and utilize the right tools and equipment. Obviously, safeguarding your furniture must be a top priority when moving. Luckily, there are a few ways to protect your furniture throughout the moving process.

This article will provide you tips that will help protect your household furniture when moving.

Commence by Disassembling Whatever You Can

You do not need to disassemble all home furnishings when moving. However you can try and take apart the ones you can before you call in a moving company in Denver. Some furniture pieces you can easily take apart include bed frames, wooden chairs, and modular sofas. Should you have the original assembly furniture instructions, it would be less difficult to look at them for guidance on disassembling the item. It could help if you wrap all the disassembled parts in a protective covering and put them inside a labeled cardboard box.

Put all Screws and Hardware Inside a Small Box

Over the furniture disassembly time, you can easily forget screws and other key hardware that holds everything together. It is important to put these items inside a small box or plastic baggie which is properly sealed as you start taking apart your household furnishings. It could also help if you quickly label all your plastic baggies with the items' corresponding furniture. This will help you easily understand where every piece needs to once you arrive in your new residence.

Make Use of the Proper Moving Equipment

While moving smaller furnishings such as coffee tables and chairs could be straightforward with no certain moving equipment, you likely will require extra equipment for bulky furniture pieces. For example, a dolly or hand truck might be useful as they assist in lifting bulky furniture items like refrigerators, dining tables, and pool tables.

Protect Your Furnishings by Wrapping it in Moving Blankets

It’s not wise to shove furniture recklessly in the moving vehicle. When you're moving the furniture, it should be vital to think it through adequately. It’s recommended to protect your furniture with moving blankets. The thick material will be great for safeguarding your furniture while moving. The heavy nature of blankets should additionally protect your doorways from nicks as a result of the furniture being moved. Shrink wrap may also be great for helping keep your furniture parts together.

Utilize a Professional Mover to Help Move Bulky Furniture

Most folks try to move awkward pieces of furniture alone without seeking assistance. Trying to move the furniture by yourself could result in damage to the furniture, walls, or floor, or even injury to you. This is why it’s important to hire the services of a professional mover in Denver when moving furniture.
