How To Protect Furniture When You Move

How To Protect Furniture When You Move

Whenever we move, the first thing that problem comes to mind is how to move the large pieces of furniture in the home. Things like couches, dressers, entertainment centers, and other heavy items immediately spring to mind. One thing that sometimes gets lost in the process of preparing and executing a move is how to protect your furniture to make sure it’s not damaged. With that in mind, here are some of our best tips for protecting your furniture during your move.

Disassemble When Possible

Many items in the home can be disassembled before moving them and we highly recommend this step if it’s an option. Small tables typically have removable legs that can be taken off, which not only takes up less space in a moving truck, but also prevents the possibility of a leg getting caught on something and breaking. Drawers can be removed from dressers to make them lighter and easier to move. We’ve all had the experience of a drawer sliding out while trying to move something heavy, which can cause both damage and injury. If you do have a piece of furniture that requires some work to disassemble, be sure to keep all the screws and connecting pieces together so that it’s easier to put them back together after the move.

Protective Coverings

Protective coverings are one of the best ways to keep furniture in good shape when you’re moving. Bubble wrap and plastic furniture covers are both good options for protecting furniture while it’s loaded, delivered, and unloaded. Not only does it keep the furniture free of dust, but it also provides a layer of protection against scratches and tears. Once you have loaded a piece of furniture onto the moving truck, cover with a moving blanket to provide another level of protection in the event that something falls on it while it’s being transported.

Clean Furniture Before Moving

It may seem counterintuitive to clean your furniture before moving, but it’s actually a good idea if you want to ensure that everything arrives in good shape at your new home. As mentioned above, dust, dirt, and debris can cause scratches on furniture, especially when stacked in a moving truck. If you thoroughly clean your furniture before covering in protective coverings, it will not only be clean when you move in, but it will also prevent it from getting scratched while it’s being moved.

Have A Layout Plan

Another way to make sure your furniture is protected is to have a layout plan before you move into your new home. Not only will this make sure that your move is executed as efficiently as possible, but it will also prevent unnecessary moving of pieces from room to room, or even within the same room. The less you have to move bulky items around the room, the less likely you are to cause any damage to the furniture and walls.
