Moving heavy furniture

Moving heavy furnitureIf you are packing up your house for relocation, the chances are that you are not looking forward to having to move the heavy furniture.  It is very important to be fully aware of precisely how to go about handling large pieces of furniture; otherwise, you could end up seriously injuring yourself or end up with serious back pain.  Fortunately there are a few tips to make the moving of furniture go a lot more smoothly.

It is very hard to pack and carry large items of furniture.  To make things easier you need to make the problem smaller, which is why it is a great idea to disassemble furniture into smaller pieces if this is possible.  Headboards and footboards could be removed from beds before attempting to move them, for example, and drawers could be taken out of desks. Before you start packing you should always clean your furniture; otherwise, you will be likely to end up covered in dust. 

Moving is also a great time to make a decision about what you do and do not need.  Broken pieces of furniture should be thrown out, as it is pointless to move them to a new home. All objects should be removed from the shelves and drawers of your furniture, and furniture should be protected by wrapping it in bubble wrap or some kind of cloth material.  Sofa cushions can be used to separate the furniture pieces to prevent them from scratching against each other.
