There are several things that you need to take into consideration before moving into a new house, and the most important of all is moving your furniture to the new place. No matter how organized you are, at the time of moving out, you are bound to face some issues, like accidentally damaging/ breaking your furniture items whilst moving. This is more common than you think, but it’s something that can be avoided by following the tips given below.
Prepping your furniture
The first thing you should do is measure out the size of the doors and elevators to check if the items can be brought out of the house without disassembling them. Taking them out in one piece is the most convenient way, but unfortunately, not all items can be removed this way. If your furniture cannot fit through the gap then you need to get the right tools and equipment in order to disassemble them safely. Items such as tables should definitely be disassembled even if they can fit through your door, as the legs can get damaged during transport. So, make sure to google out the things that might need removing and the things that don’t beforehand.
Disassembling can be time-consuming, so try to do this beforehand and get an extra hand from someone if you can’t do them by yourself. A logistics companies Melbourne will be able to handle this task efficiently without damaging the goods, so it’s better to get professional help if you are even the slightest bit unsure about it since this isn’t an easy work. If you still want to go ahead with it, ensure that you carry out everything accordingly. If your furniture item has a lot of disassembled items, make sure that you number them. This way it will be easier to keep track of these items.
Be especially cautious around glassware and other fragile items, bubble wrap them and start packing up the smaller things such as cushions and pillows. Some moving companies also offer warehousing services to store up items, this way if you lack space in your newer house you can just sell them later on instead of going through the trouble of moving them with you. This will also save you some extra space in the moving truck during the moving process.
Now, once you are finally done with the wrapping and disassembling, you will have to decide as to which object goes first and which one goes last into the truck. Generally, we should move in the heavier items first, so things like couches, table tops, dressers etc. should go in first and then the less heavy items.
