So you need some tips on moving furniture? It is one of the hardest parts of the moving process, especially when so many pieces of furniture are so big and heavy. They can be hard to move, need to be disassembled, and they can be damaged if not relocated correctly. If you do it right, however, the process can be pretty painless. Here are some moving furniture tips.

The first moving furniture tip is to figure out what you can and can’t take. What you should and shouldn’t take. Depending on where you’re moving to, maybe you are going to have enough room to keep all your current pieces of furniture. If that’s the case, then great, you can skip the rest of this paragraph! But there’s a very real chance that you’ll need to leave some things behind. Figure out what furniture you can take and get rid of the rest. You might want to hold a yard sale and pawn off the furniture you can’t bring with you (you can always use the extra cash). Or maybe you can donate the furniture to a good cause like a local hospital or even a thrift store. Once you know what furniture you can take with you, it’s time to figure out a game plan.

The next furniture moving tip is to do a little time management by taking care of the furniture that will take the longest to prep first. This means anything that can be disassembled. Anything that can be taken apart, should be taken apart. Chairs, tables, bookshelves… the goal here is to make your furniture take up the least amount of space as possible, so if that 6 foot high bookshelf can be broken down into 6 inches of boards, then do it! You’re going to want to grab some sandwich bags for this to keep all the screws and bolts in. When you’re disassembling pieces of furniture, make sure to keep all the small parts that you’ve put in plastic bags with the rest of the pieces. If possible, also keep the manual with them. Wrap the large pieces in blankets or bubble wrap, and it’s ready for the moving truck. And remember not to use tape on an area of furniture where paint or varnish removal will hinder the furniture’s appearance.

Moving furniture tip number 3 is to do everything possible to keep the pieces from becoming damaged. Use proper packing supplies such as bubble wrap and inkless news print to keep breakable items safe. Wrap wood in bubble wrap, blankets or towels to keep it from getting chipped or splintered. Keep cushions and pillows separate from everything else to reduce their risk of getting torn or snagged. And make sure that materials that could damage one another (such as glass and metal) are packed separately from one another.

When it’s time to move the large pieces of furniture that can’t be disassembled or put into boxes (like, for instance, your couch), your moving furniture tip is to get at least one more person to help you. If you’re by yourself, chances are you’ll end up needing to push or pull the large pieces of furniture which can ruin the carpet, damage the furniture itself, and possible cause yourself personal injury. The easier (and safer) way is to have a second person help you life the large items. Be sure to hold the furniture by its strongest points as you carry it out of the house and onto the moving truck. If you’re not a part of moving the furniture, and you’re having two movers do it for you, make sure you are present as they load it onto the truck. That way, if anything should happen, you are witness to it.
